The week has come and gone! Thanks to all of the churches for serving in New York City this week. Thanks to you guys for sharing the gospel with complete strangers in hopes that we will see them in Heaven one day as believers. You helped change the city, so you helped change the world. We pray for boldness and courage as you continue the great commission in your own home.
Today was exciting! The participants came back reporting more than seven people giving their lives to Christ today! We got to be a part of seven people’s eternities changing! God is so good!
Del Cerro church has been humbly serving Homero and Ana Hernandez at their church, Iglesia Bautista La Roca. They gave flowers and flyers to people in the neighborhood, inviting them to a Vacation Bible Study for their kids. The Del Cerro participants have set up and are leading the VBS in order to allow for more kids to come and hear of God’s love for them. God was made famous!
God is so good. His Kingdom is growing. Please pray for miracles. Pray that the Lord will raise our understanding of His power. Don’t forget to send E-couragrams!

It has been another hopping day here in New York City. Today we held the gathering and took up the offering, which totaled $608.00! How awesome that we are able to bless our church planters with that gift, but we want to reach $1,000 to meet our giving goal. Keep up the giving guys and serve your church planters well!
Today we were able to catch up with two more ministry sites. The first site was Lakeview Baptist Church and they were helping clean a local hangout spot in New York City.
We also caught up with Southbury Baptist Church and they had a tent set up in a park. Kids came to get their faces painted, received balloon animals, and made friendship bracelets.
Keep up the good work guys! Tomorrow we are going to catch up with our last group out in Long Island.
“When he had received the drink, Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ With that he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
Today was the first day of serving the Church of the San Francisco area. Each church had countless stories of how God moved at their site. Specifically, North Hills Church is serving Nicolas Pacheco, the church planter of Iglesia Bautista Dulce Refugio. Today they were sent out on the front lines to invite the children of the community to a VBS at this new church. The students boldly rang doorbells, walked near intimidating dogs, and spoke to complete strangers to try to welcome them into a time of hearing The Good News. After a while of bringing people in, the youth ministry from North Hills served at the Vacation Bible Study and helped lead the children in their pursuit of the King.
A group of students from Airway Heights Church and Central Baptist Church came together to serve Mustafa and his church plant, B.A.S.I.C.. The team spent notable time serving at a food bank, preparing for a large scale event to reach the community. At this event, the people of the community will be given a meal, plus groceries to bring home. There will be a sports camp for the kids and a prayer tent for all those in need. This event is to bless the community and to introduce people to B.A.S.I.C. and its heart for the community. We pray that through this event, the Lord is glorified and people are drawn to be discipled by Mustafa and his church.
Continue to pray for each church planter and for ways for the P2 participants to bless them. Send your E-couragrams to participants!
