ships visited this week
4 ships on Monday:
SICHEM EDINBURGH, MARYLEBONE, and DARYA SUR - Indian, and Filipino; Indian, Filipino,
Russian, and Ukrainian; All Indian. 2 Indian Christians on the first ship. 4 Indian Christians on the
second ship, and 5 Indian Christians on the third ship. We always gave an opportunity for the Hindu to
pray with us. Prayed with the Christians too and blessed the ships.
COS CHERRY - All Chinese. We gave a little bit music and a short message. Many people were
interest in it. Finished giving all the Gospel materials, and took the chief officer to shopping. He was
the only one who had short pass on the vessel.
Steven Chao from WHCC came and helped visiting the vessels.
4 ships on Wednesday:
COS CHERRY - All Chinese. This time was a revisit. We had a persinal evangelism with the chief
officer. He accepted the Lord as his personal savior. We blessed the vessel.
PACIFIC JAVA, and PAC ADARA - British, Filipino, and Chinese; Ukrainian. Filipino, and
Chinese. Prayed with the Chinese cadet and the Filipino chief officer on the first ship. 2 Chinese
Christians on the second ship, the chief officer and the chief cook. The chief cook told us that he was
just praying some pastor could come, and then we came on board. These two and the Chinese general
steward have regular Bible study once a week on the ship. The general steward asked to be baptized,
so we baptized him on the ship. Now they have 3 Chinese Christians on board. Praised the Lord.
STENA FR8 1 - All Indian. 6 Christians on board including the captain. Prayed with the Christians and
the Hindus and blessed the vessel.
5 ships on Thursday:
UTA - Russian, and Ukrainian. Receptive.
STAR FRASER - All Filipino. This ship comes here regularly. A routine visit.
BELO ORIENTE - All Indian. 5 Christians on board. Prayed with 1 Hindu.
PACIFIC JAVA, and PAC ADARA - British, Filipino, and Chinese; Ukrainian. Filipino, and Chinese. I
revisited both vessels, 'cause many of them didn't have Chinese Scriptures. On the second ship, 2
more Chinese crew were willing to believe in Jesus Christ and to start a farther son relationship with
God. I took 3 Chinese to Chinatown and Best Buy. Please pray for the chief cook. His wife is not a
Christian yet. PAC ADARA is going to New Orleans next.
1 ship on Saturday:
SICHEM EDINBURGH - Indian, and Filipino. This was a revisit. One Indian Christian emailed me and
asked to see me. It was urgent, so I went back. After I shared the God's Words and prayed with him,
he was much better. Please pray for this Christian's spiritual growth in Christ.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen. (Gal. 6:18)
