ships visited this week
7 ships on Monday:
CLIPPER POSH, NORGAS TRAVELLER, and BBC WESER - Filipino, Polish,
Indian, Russian. Croatian, and Spanish. Prayed for the crew and their families as
CHRYSSA K, and HELLENIC SEA - Greek, and Filipino. Some Filipino Christians
knows the salvation through Jesus Christ very well, some don't.

with 2 Chinese, and blessed the ship.
BRAZOS 1 - All Indian. 2 Christians, the chief cook and the 2nd cook. Another 2
people came and agreed to pray to ask Jesus into their hearts. One Hindu and one
7 ships on Tuesday:
MARIA KNUTSEN, SYN ACRAB, and REGINA OLDENDORFF - Filipino, and
Norwegian; Filipino, and Italian; Filipino, Indonesian, Russian, Maldivian, and Sri
Lanka. A group of 5 Filipino got together and prayed on SYN ACRAB. Please pray
especially for a Filipino seaman's sister. She is pregnant, and the baby is due soon.
AALBORG - Polish, Bulgarian, and Romanian. Good and short visit.
OVERSEAS MAREMAR - American. They still need the NIV Bible.
STOLT MARKLAND - Russian, and 2 Chinese. Prayed the salvation prayer with the 2
chinese cadets. It's the first time for them to be on the sea. They were excited and yet
SAGA JANDAIA - All Indian but 1 Myanmar 2nd officer. 2 Christians, chief cook and
the mess boy. One Hindu came to receive the Scripture, DVD, and Jesus. Prayed and
blessed the ship.
1 ship on Wednesday:
SEA MAPLE - All Chinese. At first, there was resistance on board until the political
officer's confidence was gained. The Holy Spirit penetrated the seamen's hearts, so
that they wanted to come for their Scriptures and be blessed. The door was opened
wide enough to minister to them including the captain. It's the demonic how the
moslem and communist use fear tactics and intimadation to control others. Satan
constantly uses these methods to doom people to hell. It's a challenge for the body of
Christ to rise up and be serious to promote global evangelism.
2 ships on Friday:
DIAMOND GLORY - All Filipino. It was a short but good visit.
JIN FU - All Chinese. The captain and the chief engineer were known to us from the
previous visits from the other ships. We ministered privatly to the chief engineer. He
said he believed in Jesus, but he didn't want to go through the formality to pray the
salvation prayer with us right then. We gave some Christmas presents for the crew
other than Scriptures. The ship is going to Mexico City, then New Orleans.
Pastor Caleb Chiu from WHCC came and helped visiting the ships on Friday.
Grace be with you. (1Ti. 6:21)
