The MTC is back in session! We are thrilled to be together again for the second year of the Manhattan Training Center, where we learn to be better followers of Christ while embarking on adventures in New York City. We had a great kickoff event last week, and we can tell from the energy and enthusiasm of the youth that we have an exciting year in store for us. To help us get ready for this year's activities, MTC veterans Elise and James shared some of their thoughts and experiences from last year, and zone leader Mike Matthews showed a video with highlights from last year and a preview of this year. Check it out below!
The MTC Youth then got right down to work with the "Seven-Minute Service Challenge": seven minutes to go outside and find some way to share God's love with their brothers and sisters, using nothing but the Spirit and their own creativity. They did a great job! Working together as zones, they were able to help and comfort a homeless woman, thank a pair of police officers for their service, take pictures of people in front of the Lincoln Center (so much better than a selfie!), share a message of God's love for families with an expectant woman and her husband, and brighten the days of everyone they passed on the sidewalk with their smiles and kind words. It's going to be a great year!
