CCN was asked to train up 100 youth to go out and share the gospel. The students were encouraged and loved the teaching. They learned why to use the law. The students learned what the gospel is and how to share it. They were taught some basic apologetic. We were so grateful to serve in this way. Below you can see Amynah and Aishah teaching the youth.
Several Campus Leaders attended Jersey Fire this year. Two of them served as team leaders during outreach. Nick did a wonderful job as a team leader as well as with sharing the gospel via open air.
Amynah did a wonderful job as well. This young man heard and understood the gospel.
We spent 3 days in NYC for Leadership Summit. It was hard to pick which pictures to put into the newsletter, you can see more pictures here. During 2 of the evenings and one of the mornings we went out for outreach. Tim Jackson got to open air for the first time using IQ tests. Tim did a wonderful job. Here is a picture of him.
Ryan got to proclaim the gospel in the subway to hundreds of people. This was the first time Ryan shared this way in a subway station
We spent a few hours at Planned Parenthood. We shared the gospel with many young ladies and the employees. Here is a picture of Jen sharing the gospel. We share the gospel first since it is the gospel that has the power to save.
We also spent 4 days in NYC for Repent and Witness. There were too many pictures and too many stories to share them all. Repent and Witness Missionary trip pictures can be seen here.
It was so hard to pick which stories and which pictures to show you all. Jake had a lesbian cry over her sins. We had a gentleman who we have witnessed to for years thank us for answering his questions and being so kind to him. We were told that he would no longer heckle us because of our kindness. We witnessed to JW's and Mormons. Jen talked to a gentleman named Jonathan that believed a little of everything was true. We were able to talk to many people after open air sessions. We gave away 8+ Bibles after open airing on the subway. We ran out of Bibles to give out! Jen was able to give pizza to a homeless couple and then gave them the gospel. They told her afterward that she gave them joy and considered repenting and placing their faith in Jesus.
We had several firsts at Repent and Witness as well. Todd did his first open air proclamation of the gospel.
Several new people joined us in NYC this year and they all loved the event. We invited many of the people that we witnessed to join us on Sunday morning for church in Union Square. Several people did join us for church. Jake witnessed to one young lady that brought her brothers to church.
We were able to open air all weekend. We had favor with the authorities. We praise Jesus for that.
We handed out hundreds of gospel tracts in Battery Park.
Jake asked permission to share the gospel with all the kids in a day care that was walking by. It was a beautiful moment. He spent about 15 minutes talking about God and the gospel with them.
We had so many great one to one witnessing encounters. Below Andrew from Striving for Eternity talks with people that we have been witnessing to for years and one that joined us for church.
We shared the gospel in Central Park. We had to pick a new location in Central Park due to a group of naked women were having their bodies painted in the park. We did not want to tempt any of the men so we moved onto another location.
At the new location Jen almost had her foot run over by an angry Catholic. Andrew talked to some devote Muslims and we proclaimed the gospel open air. Here is a picture of Andre sharing the gospel.
Thank You so much for your support. God Bless you.
