The saints in Bridgeport, Connecticut, did their final outreach this year in their “God is Going Back to School” campaign.  What a powerful way to bring God back to school by allowing the theology of the church house to become biography at the local schools in our cities.  We don’t have to wait for a newly elected President or Congress; we can simply live our faith out in the streets of our cities and watch Jesus do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or imagine.  Enjoy!  ~ Flip

God Went Back to School Today  – Bunnell High, Stratford 

“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony. My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father — that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me.” (Jesus’ speaking) John 17:20-21

Twelve of us got up real early this morning to be at the high school before 7 AM to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to teens in our community. (Michael, Rich, Gloria, Susan, Tom, Ron, Pam, Brenda, Vinny, Carmen, Danny & Me). The police were notified yesterday of our outreach.  We prayed before and after that God’s word would go forth and do what He wanted to accomplish. Thanks to all of you for laying down your comforts to try to help your neighbor. We passed out info on salvation,abstinence and abortion. We used Rusty’s flyers, Mark Cahill’s booklets and OSA tracts. We believe that God will use every piece of literature for His Glory!  We also had signs showing the difference between a live baby and an aborted baby.

We gave out many of pieces of literature. It was a suburban school, not like the inner city schools where most of the kids walk in. Most kids at Bunnell either drive in, are dropped off or go on a bus. We were able to give literature to most of the students that walked in. Some of the parents weren’t happy. One asked the police woman if it was legal for us to be there and pass out literature and she said “yes”. It is our first amendment freedom to assemble, to distribute literature and hold signs. This is still America.  A dad asked Carmen for the literature and then proceeded to complain about us being there and talked to our attorney who was there with us. He said he was going to sue us, that we made his daughter late for school and if she didn’t do well on her test it was our fault. One school administrator was on the sidewalk near me and told a couple of kids they didn’t have to take the info or they could throw it away. (That would make most kids want it and read it.)

On the front side where Danny was, a Marine talked to him and said he was a Christian and a street preacher. He wanted to know all about our ministry and what we do. Vinny gave him his card. There were two police officers on that side that were very polite, took tracts, wanted to know more about what we do. A man that lived in the house on the corner near Danny told him we were right for being there.

Please join us as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. Four babies have been saved so far this month. We will be in Bridgeport and New Haven tomorrow, next week Bridgeport schedule  is Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. We are there at 8 AM – 10 AM at 3787 Main St. Bpt. We will be there until the killing stops.

For the Least of These,
