It's September and CCN is in full swing on the campuses. Topics taught included "Hell's Best Kept Secret", "Sinfulness of Mankind", "Attributes of God" and "Priorities". We also showed a movie about evolution and discussed several key claims it presented.
CCN just loves to go to other campuses and preach the gospel. Our Director of Discipleship took a trip to Chicago to preach the gospel and tell people at Moody Bible College and University of Illinois Chicago about CCN. They were encouraged by seeing Christians share their faith. Pray that they are encouraged to start a CCN in Chicago. This is a photo of CCN preaching at UIC.
MCCC did a great job during outreaches this past month. They were blessed with many opportunities to witness. Campus Leader Andre loves to share the gospel and does a great job of teaching his students as well.
In New York we led several outreaches. Roberto gives the gospel during a Saturday outreach in Manhattan.
We even had a few firsts this month. First a young man named Sam proclaimed the gospel while open air preaching at Pitt 2 weeks ago. He had been praying to do this for a few months and was encouraged to do it for the first time this month.
Next a young man named Dylan decided to join us for outreach at Pitt this month. He was encouraged to share his faith. He handed out tracts and talked to people about Jesus. He said that he was encouraged to share his faith. This is a picture of Dylan handing out tracts.
We have also been focusing on witnessing "1 to 1" at Pitt and SRU this month. We witnessed to an average of 20 people per week at SRU, and had multiple quick Gospel conversations (and several lengthy ones) at the University of Pittsburgh. Laura witnessed to a man going to seminary to be a Catholic Priest who claimed the Bible is not the word of God and that traditions are just as important as the Word. We asked him if after confessing his sins in the morning followed by a day of sinning and then dying in the evening, would he would go to heaven, he said he did not know. I pray God saves him so he can have hope. Please pray he reads all the tracts and information we gave him and that they will be used to open his eyes. Here is a picture of the conversation.
We were able to have several 30 minute conversations during our Saturday outreaches in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District. Diane witnessed to a retired doctor. Pray that he repents and puts his faith in Jesus. He wanted to go to a coffee shop and talk longer. He talked to Diane for a very long time about God.
The Campus Leaders got together and created a new gospel tract this month. We're really enjoying handing these out on all the Campuses.
Finally we like to say "Thank you!" to all of our donors. This ministry would not be possible without you. We are grateful to God and you for partnering with CCN.
