YG at David Crowder in NYC

November 17, 2009

On Friday, Nov 13th, the NHF Youth Group and several others from our church took the train into New York City for a night on the town. Shortly after arriving at Grand Central and walking through its congested corridors, we boarded the subway and 15 minutes later found ourselves at Columbus Circle. After snapping a few pictures of the early Christmas lights, we entered Time Warner Center and grabbed a bite to eat at Whole Foods. Some folks grabbed light salads and seasonal fruits while others gravitated toward the heavier pork ribs and the famous chicken curry. When everyone had finished their meal, we walked over to Terminal 5 for the David Crowder Band’s Church Music Tour concert. The opening bands, Seabird and Danyew, were surprisingly very good and the David Crowder Band had a New York Times worthy performance. Click here for NY Times article. Click here for our pictures.


On Saturday, Oct. 3rd, the NHF Men joined together for a 2 hour breakfast at the Doral Arrowwood resort in Rye.  Acting as if they didn’t eat all week, they stuffed themselves with plates piled high of waffles, omelettes, bacon, cereals, fruit, and a few cups of hot brew. Soon thereafter, they joined together in a conference room to discuss the life of William Wilberforce, the British politician, philanthropist, leader who abolished the slave trade, child of God, and brother in Christ.

After a great time of prayer and reflection, the men took advantage of the open Saturday to enjoy the golf links and tennis courts of Westchester County. For pictures, please click here.

If you have not been able to join for a Band of Brothers meeting, we would love for you to join this fall.

The noreSERVations’ pizza and movie theater night on Oct 2nd was a “blast”. The tasty pizzas, yummy calzones, solid salads, and messy spaghetti with meatballs prepared both children and adults for the 3-D “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”. This animation film featured the voices of Anna Faris, Mr. T, Neil Patrick Harris, and Al Roker among many others. For pictures, click here.  

For those of you that missed us this time, we would love for you to join at our next event. Stay tuned…

An event update from Tim K. of the NHF YG:

“On August 1st, the NHF Youth Group and I attended the Shane and Shane + Casting Crowns concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Everyone congregated at John’s apartment to relax after the Sports Day until we had to catch the train from the White Plains station at 5:00 P.M. There we met Jen and her two nieces. The train ride took approximately 35 minutes and we ended up at the beautiful Grand Central Station. Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s an update on I’s shoulder and a cheeky little photo …

The saga continues … A day after I had written the great news about I’s shoulder, we get a call from one of the doctors.  He wants to get a third opinion about what the lump might be because after looking at the MRIs, he and a radiologist still think it might be a hemangioma!  Arrgghh!  So he recommended that we hold off on the procedure until he hears from some specialists at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.  He then wanted to do the procedure on July 13 –only 6 days before we’d fly back to Central Asia!

NHF Softball completed the grueling 12-inning marathon by chalking up another valuable W. The third win in the last three games was a well-deserved reward for the game plan of “small ball a.k.a. little ball”. Read the rest of this entry »
