Jesus Loves You, New York

(That's me on the left, at a street outreach in the early 80s, along with mom and dad, Jamie and Jonathan)
This summer marks the 19th or 20th year of Abounding Grace's annual "Jesus Loves You, New York" outreach. (I don't recall if the first was in '85 or '86). Either way, I was a boy when we started, 10 or 11, and it was at these early outreaches that my love for people and ministry took hold. Beginning yesterday, about 60 people from around the country are sleeping at Abounding Grace by night and engaging the community, along with church members, by day. Go here for a schedule of activities, and if you're in New York this week, come and participate.
