NYC: Day Five

This week has contained extremely long days and today was no exception. For missions today the students in groups went canvassing in Harlem. What that entailed was everyone had popsicles to pass out for free, and offered prayer to anyone who wanted it. Some groups kept very mobile the whole time meeting lots of people while others, like mine, got into a great conversation with a man for 45 minutes. The students really had to step out of what's comfortable to approach strangers for prayer, but the popsicles broke the ice... pun intended. After canvassing we set up on two street corners with hot dogs, water, cookies, and various toiletries. People lined up and students walked them through the process of getting a few things from the table and then spent some time praying with them at the end.

We met a bunch of hurting people and were able to minister to them by meeting their immediate need for food and water on a hot day, but also spent time in prayer and even presented the gospel to some who wanted more. Chris even gave his pants away (he had an extra pair in his backpack don't worry). This was after a half hour talk with an amputee who showed great faith in God providing for his needs, which Chris witnessed first hand as a random man walked up and gave him food and water. He had been praying to acquire a change of clothes as his were very rugged, and Chris felt prompted to help him in this. It has been the only day all week he packed an extra pair.

As there always is in this kind of ministry, you have the people who solely want free food, but there really was so many who genuinely wanted someone to talk to and be prayed over. I think all the students grew in their boldness to help the hurting today.

As we do each night, the students split to go to different touristy locations. One group saw another Broadway play, and got to go backstage AGAIN... lucky. Another went to Central Park and then Top of the Rock (that was my group and it was stunning). The last group went to little Sicily to relax and eat dinner. Everything has been going smoothly, one more full day to go!

NYC: Day Four

What a Thursday! Each day with the Dream Center starts with worship & teaching sessions to get our minds focused for the ministry to come. We then split into a bunch of groups to do residential assistance, which is a really clinical sounding term for going and hanging out with elderly people throughout the community and cleaning a bit. Everyone came back with awesome stories of the person(s) they met. I personally was with a team that went to help Barbra, a woman in Harlem, clean out one of her storage lockers a bit. I was told before we went that she didn't touch people so we shouldn't try and shake her hand or anything. I got the privilege of speaking with her the entire time and throughout 2 hours she hugged me three times! The Dream Center student was amazed at how open she was with someone she just met.

Afterwards, at the adopt-a-block party/free bread event, one student (Madison) was able to go above and beyond for one lady who was struggling to find the shoes she needed for her daughter. Her assistance led to a 30 minute discussion where they shared stories and prayed for each other. Story after story came from all the students about their experiences today!

To end the night we did something EVERYONE had been looking forward to (drum roll please)... Broadway musical! Chris managed to buy everyone Aladdin tickets. The show was phenomenal, the set was perfect, even equipped with a flying carpet... Still not sure how it flew around like that. Matt is friends with one of the dancers in the show and after getting photos with some of the cast out back, we were invited for a backstage tour. His name is Sam and he made the students' night, I've never seen Callandra that excited! Everything about the Broadway experience was so much more than anyone expected. Can't wait to see what the rest of the week holds.

Also I know we look like we have googly-eyes in that one picture... I'm sorry, the flash killed it haha.
