Frontline:NY09 - Sunday in New York

Frontline Student Ministries Filed Under: Labels: , ,
What an unbelievable morning for us. After a long day of travel we were excited to wake up and see New York. Even greater was the opportunity to worship the Lord at the Brooklyn Tabernacle. We went to the noon service. What an awesome sight to see people lined up outside and around the block to get in. 2.5 hours of amazing music, worship, and teaching.

Then of COURSE it was off to Junior's restaurant for Cheesecake.

Original plans had us doing a prayer walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. However the rain prevented us from doing so. Instead the YWAM team mobilized us for prayer stations in... Grand Central station.

So here it is... basically we have red aprons on that say "Prayer Changes Things." We have a table with a large banner that says "Prayer Station." Two or three walk up one way and two or three the other way with flyers saying "Prayer station ahead." At the table are several of us with Bibles, encouraging prayer books and more. We walk up to people and ask if we could pray for them... and oh did we.

Cody was able to spend 2 hours with a shop attendant named Rahman discussing the difference between the Islamic faith and faith in Christ. He had 1000 questions and at the end asked for the Gospel of John. Erin had so many opportunities to share her heart and pray with people. Rebecca, Jenny, Chris, Sarah...everyone had the opportunity to greet people, pray with them, and of course be rejected by many more. Awesome.

Afterward we headed to ESPN Zone and Times Square for a bit before heading back to debrief. What began as a day of introduction to NYC turned out to be a day of all out ministry.
