On November 2nd, I will be running the New York City Marathon with Ray Villegas, our local New York YFC staff member. Both Ray and I received entrance to the Marathon in highly GOD-incidental ways! We are both convinced that the Lord is going to do something extraordinary on that day. We dreamed and prayed about this as we ran through Central Park almost one year ago now!
Ray is one of God’s choice servants and as a young evangelist, together with his family, he embraces the teenagers of this great, iconic city with the love of Christ.
Often when I am asked about my prayer life, I respond, “Ask me about my running!” Ray and I will be “Progging” – prayer jogging 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of New York city! This aligns with the significant move by Youth for Christ USA to step in to their mega-cities on behalf of the every young urban person.
As we bathe the city in prayer, every step we take will declare the Lord’s heart cry: “That none should perish but that ALL should come to repentance!”
Would you consider investing in Ray, Sarah, and their two precious boys, Jaden and Reuel Villegas? As you invest in them, you redemptively invest in an entire city full of teenagers!
