Jen got a Call from a student at SRU. She got to hear a story of a female SRU student that she had talked to a few times. The young lady had heard the gospel while talking to Jen on campus. She realized the evil in her homosexual relationship. She repented and placed her trust in Jesus. She started going to a good church during the summer. She decided to go to a different college this year, so she would not be tempted by the LGBTQ culture at SRU. We are so grateful to God. Please pray for her.
The first week in August I spent in NYC. We had 2 days of training for the Campus Leaders and then several days of outreach. We did many interesting outreaches on the subways. We had several sinners anonymous meetings. One gentleman comes into the subway car thanking everyone for coming to the meeting. He asks for people to give their testimony and then when no one does he gives his own. Then he pleads with people again to stand up and give their testimony. After a third plea one of us stands up and gives our testimony. Here is a picture of me giving my testimony of coming to Christ. Then two others stand up and give their testimony. As you can see by the young lady here every one is listening and surprised. In the one location, we did this others had almost been arrested for preaching the gospel a few days earlier and we had the same guards tell the complainers to sit and be quiet so that they could see all that would happen. A little creativity can go a long way to finding a way to share the gospel. Many people heard the gospel.
The parks in NYC are a wonderful place to witness. People go to the parks to interact with others. We had many wonderful conversations. These two had many questions and ended up talking to several Christians about Jesus. Pray that God is changing their hearts.
Hundreds of people heard the gospel via open air evangelism in the parks. God drew several large crowds to hear the gospel throughout the week. Some crowds gather because of apologetics like here.
We gathered crowds using IQ tests and trivia as well. Either way everyone heard a good gospel message. What a wonderful week we had in NYC.
