Recap videos, Scavenger Hunt with a Twist Fun

Scott, Joel, and Sam Sharing Their Days w/Us All




From the Heart of Allison

It is such an honor to be here getting to know this group of students and see their personalities come out. They have been so enthusiastic about every aspect of the trip!! I am loving seeing them interact over Bible passages, scream at each other over card games, and approach people in thoughtful ways in the parks initiating conversations and being good listeners. Thank you for letting them come!!

From the Heart of Dana

Ethan and I had to stay back at the hostel because he was sick on day one but on day two he was feeling much better. Thank you to all who prayed for healing for him. God hears our prayers! It has been such a joy watching the teens in action today. The girls are so courageous. I am so impressed with how enthusiastic they are about approaching strangers, listening,  sharing their story and God’s story. The training times in the morning are so encouraging and challenging. Keep praying for us as we go and share with the people of New York. We appreciate your sacrificial giving and prayers that allow us to be here.

MINISTRY PICTURESToday we were in Central Park, Columbus Circle and had a ton of great conversations.  We held a great bible study looking at 2 Corinthians 5;6-10 was highly encouraging.  Sam Walls is found speaking to the entire group.  He had a statement that was just simply great and then we used Sam and Sophie as props for a thematic illustration for understanding the judgement seat of Christ.

  1. Just LOVE these updates. Keep them coming! We hope you felt the prayers of your family back at 290CC this evening. We miss you all but love that you are training, training, training; forming teams of two; praying; going; and talking (this was Brad Greenstreet’s twist on the same concepts Greg has been teaching!). He had us all recite it as a group and then Sawyer and Robin did it solo perfectly.
