Here are some great pictures from our summer mission trip back to New York City for the second time to work with David and Robin Van Fleet who direct a ministry called Street Life Ministries.  Campus Ministry Associate Melissa Cormany led an all-female team on this trip.  The entire team is pictured in the first image above at the Street Life base.  In the second picture, students are distributing soup, bread and clothing to the homeless in Tompkins Square Park; this is one of the weekly activities conducted by SLM.  The next two images show some of the team members participating in the prayer station ministry which is also an integral part of SLM's ministry in the City.  It takes a lot of courage for our students to pray with strangers on the streets of NYC, but they did great!  The final two pictures show team members interacting with children at a local playground in Flushing.  They are sharing the love of Christ through face painting and chalk drawing.  It was great to see how the students grew in their faith and boldness throughout the trip.
