Day 12-13 Of The NYC Outreach !!!!!!

25 Jul

The “Coffee Meister” has completed this part of his duties. The final batch of cold-brewed coffee has been strained, put into the dispenser containers and ready to be distributed in a couple of hours.

Yesterday was our biggest coffee distribution yet with 200 gallons ready. Our four distribution points were good ones. The one I went to was Grand Central Station and within one hour we had distributed our 50 gallons and engaged in several conversations about Jesus being the Messiah and Savior of the Jews as well as non Jews.

To tell you of the impact of our distribution upon Manhattan, when walking down the street in my tee shirt loudly proclaiming who I am people stop and ask if we are about to halve another distribution. With the millions of bustling people in Manhattan we have built a brand. And our brand is named Brews For Jesus. That is our hashtag.

One of the clever ideas to instigate discussion among Jewish people is our sign which is read by thousands each night. We also take them out for our night outreach work. From 8pm-12pm with split up into four groups around the city. Last night I was at Times Square. The sign below gets tremendous traffic and brings much discussion about eternal matters.


We have sowed the seed of God’s tremendous love and grace in the person of Jesus, Israel’s Messiah, and Savior to all peoples. What a privilege has been mine to be such a part of this. I honestly, in spite of the intense work, hate to see it end.

Tomorrow is the last day of the campaign but I shall remain behind until Tuesday before I return to Oklahoma helping wrap things up and to follow up with some we have meetings scheduled. I will only be home for 4 days and I shall return back here for a week. I need to get home to put up hay for the winter for the cattle.

As I return home for a few days to put up our hay crop, we must all be about our Master’s business harvesting the souls of men before He returns. May we tirelessly labor in this effort to proclaim the Gospel to all who need to hear.

Until next time, Lord willing,

    Thank you for taking the time to tell us what God is doing there. It is exciting to hear. More and more I think our time is short and we need to be urgently telling others.

      Good morning Carol. I agree that the time is probably short. I’ve enjoyed and learned so much from the various ways and efforts used to spark real conversations about Jesus and presenting the Gospel. I think Paul would maybe be using the same techniques if he were here today. I appreciate you, Karen. Have a great day!!!

    What an awesome idea, Levi! This is so wonderful to hear. So proud of all yours and others hard work to reach the Jewish Community in NY. I’ll be praying for continued success. You have a reach that someone like me would never be able to harness. God bless.
