So much has happened wince we last wrote. Here are some of the highlights!
Millennials Benefit- This spring we held a rooftop event to help raise money for some of our upcoming ministry events in the fall. We invited millennials who have been involved in the ministry for a couple years, to give them an opportunity to be a part of giving to the next group of Millennials who are going to be involved with Cru. We had a good turnout despite a bad weather forecast and raised $3800 together with a matching gift for the evening.
Discipleship with Nini- Remember Nini and Joy? They continue to meet weekly to study the bible together in Chinese. Pray for Nini as she's back in China this summer that she would stay strong in her faith. She's going to be baptized in the fall so pray for her as she prepares to make her public declaration of faith.
Friends moving- Summer comes with the inevitable transition of people leaving the city. This summer is no different. We've said goodbye to many close friends , saddened that we won't do daily life with them anymore, but grateful that our paths crossed for a season.
New friends- Even though people are leaving, we also have a huge influx of Millennials into the city in the summer. During our Summer Kickoff Picnic in Central Park, we met many new Millennials who had just moved to New York City. Please pray for these Millennials, that they would find Christian community that would help them walk with Jesus as they get acclimated to living in the city.
