The NYC Outreach held May 18-22 was BEYOND BELIEF and the men of God that gathered from across this nation were primed and ready to "Go for Jesus." The outreach, termed the "Boot Camp in the Big Apple" and themed after the words to the old 70's hit "The Boys are Back in Town" was the first of what Street Wise Ministry (Hollywood) and Raven Ministries International hopes to be an annual event.

(Above L-R) Steve Ignowski and Terry Shuff of Raven Midwest are joined by Thomas Derrick (far right - of Raven New Orleans) with their "friend" they met while we ministered in Tompkins Square Park on the Lower East Side of Manhattan one evening. The man was the "heavy" in a drug infested park, yet the guys were able to minister to him at length.

(Above)I was blessed to have two of my nephews with me during this outreach. Justin Bohn (far left) is a full time volunteer for the Celebration Relief Center in New Orleans and Brandon Romero (far right) is the new director of Raven Southwest based in Albuquerque, NM.
