Dear Praying Friends,
Thank you to your fervent prayers, we have lots to praise God for and to continue lifting up before His throne!
The past two weekends Staten Island believers have reached out to their communities in Jesus’ name! May 16th at Midland Beach Park, 750 families enjoyed a fun day with food, activities, music, and the Gospel. May 23rd at Stapleton Park, 6 churches and the Salvation Army joined together to bridge the gap between the churches and their community! 100’s of families came to enjoy the afternoon and hear the Good News. With momentum on Staten Island going strong after the 4 festivals this past month, local churches are already planning more outreaches to their community!
Stories of Hope, Women’s Dinner on June 1st is quickly approaching. 3 weeks ago only 2 tables were hosted, now all 100 tables are filled- and there is a waiting list. 1000 women will attend and hear the Gospel with “Stories of Hope!"
Counselor training is well underway with over 1500 Christians trained and ready to help those who want to receive Christ at any festival event! You can be equipped to share your faith too. Check out Festivalfriend.com.
Add June 7th to your calendar of events. Bridgeport CT will be having a festival there with Luis. To see more of the exciting events that are coming up visit to nycityfest.org.
Keep Luis in prayer as he moves (temporarily) to NY this week!
The media and PR have begun publicizing Luis and Cityfest. Praise God for the people being reach through these methods. Pray everyone in NYC has an opportunity to attend at least one event to hear about The Good News in the City.
Lift up the upcoming women’s luncheon in CT, this Thursday, May 28th, where God willing 400 women will hear Jesus’ name.
This weekend, May 28, 29, 30th, an outreach called AWAKEN will take place in Queens and Manhattan. Through music and the Word with Phil Wickham, Mike Doyle and Andrew Palau, people will once again have the opportunity to hear the Good News!
Similar to how we begged God to provide the women for the women’s dinner on June 1st (a seemingly impossible task), please ask God to provide table hosts and guests who need to know Jesus for the June 9th Business & Civic Leaders Breakfast. This is a unique opportunity for people to invite co-workers and friends to hear the Gospel.
Lots of great things going on! Keep praying and fasting as the work intensifies and the enemy doesn’t like it! Pray for the team’s protection and health, and for their families while they’re apart. Ask God to work wonders in the lives of people in and around NYC this month!
Praying in a NY minute,
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will be faithful to bring it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil 1:6
