My first day in New York this month was a good one. I read a post yesterday from someone I often read and she explained about a visit over the weekend to Long Island. She said that when she looked over the bridge toward Manhattan she could feel the vibrancy running through her. I fully understand where she is coming from. I feel the same way as soon as I land at LaGuardia. No matter how many times I come here I always anticipate it. As a rule, as soon as I’m settled into my room I take off Uptown. Jews For Jesus is located at 31st and Park Ave. so it is a very nice walk. Here is a photo of the Empire State Building last night. It is only about 3 blocks away.
Today, after the staff meeting and lunch, I headed to Herald Square and stood on the corner of 35Th and 6th Ave passing out tracks and speaking with those that wished to. Herald Square is a great place to be a herald of the forgiveness of sins that can be had only in Jesus the Messiah. I handed out 400 Jews For Jesus tracks and was able to have 4 conversations, 3 of them being Jewish men. That may not sound like a lot, but what we don’t know is how God will work in the hearts of all that received and read the tract. In the staff meeting this morning a mention came out of a gentleman responding after 1 1/2 years. We have a promise that if we proclaim the message of the Gospel that God will take those words and do His perfect work.
“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it”. Isaiah 55:11
Pray that God will use me in some small way in helping to reach some of this cities people to the Truth.
Shalom, until next time, Lord willing,
