Our New York Experience has been so fun. We've already seen more things, and been more places than I thought we would all summer. Life in the city is fast-paced, and is pretty tiring. We leave in the morning...around 9 and don't get home until 10 most nights! It's hard to get used to. Here are some pictures of the fun we've had:
Here is us at the Top of the Rockafeller Center...the view of Central Park was my favorite!
You might be wondering what else we've been doing in addition to all the sight-seeing...well today was the first day of ministry on the college campuses here. Up until this point there has been lots of preparation, and getting students adjusted to life in the city (navigating the subways, building relationships within their team, learning about their campuses, etc) Today my ministry team spent most of our time at Hunter College, where my friend Jon and I were able to talk to 4 students who were soooo different than us. Out of the 4 students we just happened to strike up conversations with, 3 were Jewish. It was awesome...I love the diversity here, and it's awesome to see how the Gospel transcends all those unique differences. It was a great day, and we were able to talk about Jesus alot! I'm excited to tell you more as we're on campus much more frequently for the next 4 straight weeks.
