It’s only day 5? It seems so short and yet so long at the same time. I have so many things to share with you all but very little time to do so.
The video I posted yesterday really shows some of our interaction with the people of NYC. The 4 teams split up each morning and go to various locations each day. At night 4 completely different places are chosen. The coffee and water are distributed only in the mornings.
In the evening a prayer board is set up and many many people come by and place prayer request. Most are touched that anyone would care to pray for them, or anything that concerns them. We then pray with them and later as well.
When I look around me, I feel I think, just like the apostle Paul must have felt entering the major cities in the areas he traveled to with his team. Although not inspired like the apostles, we are doing the exact same work.
Today at lunch I heard of a couple of “not so pleasant people” who weren’t so nice, but nothing violent. The folks around here have been super nice and many receptive to what we, Jews For Jesus, are all about. We are all about proclaiming the goodnews, to the Jews first, and also to the Gentiles, that Jesus Christ is Israel’s Messiah and Savior to all peoples.
Now for the fantastic news. Today, Irina, one of our team members here from Russia led another 25 year old Russian lady to The Lord. She asked Irina if she would also meet with her to teach her a few things from the Bible. Naturally, she was thrilled and has a time set up to meet with her.
There have been a few that have come to The Lord during the campaign, but this is not a campaign to get people to say a prayer, pronounce them saved, and leave. We have I’m told over 100 who have requested an individual meeting to discuss Jesus. The full-time missionaries in NYC will be busy for weeks and months to come. I only wish I were here long enough to take part in this.
I’ve had some mighty fine food since I’ve been here. I’ll show you my dinner from night before last at Sarge’s Jewish Restaurant. Boiled potatoes came with it but I needed some French fries. Lol. I actually was able to eat only about 1/3 of what I was served.
Corned beef over cabbage and crispy fries. Yuuuumy!!!
This is all of the time I have for now.
Until next time, Lord willing,
