Town and shopping.
3 ships on Monday: EQUINOX DAWN - All Filipino; Receptive.
PANAM CELESTE - All Indian. We were on this vessel last May. Two
Christians on board. We prayed with one Christian and other three seamen
together. They all had Jesus DVDs in their own languages.
LIAN PING HU - All Chinese. It was the first time this ship came to Houston.
We prayed with six of them. Steven taught them how to pray. We took the fourth

and other seamen wanted, and we sent him back.
Steven Chao from WHCC came and help the ministry today.
2 ships on Tuesday:
BOW ENGINEER - Indian, and one Russian chief officer. Two Indian Christians and one Russian Orthodox on board. The captain is a Christian but the officers
didn't want me to see him because he was resting. I prayed with two Hindus at the
ENTERNAL CONFIDENCE - All Chinese. We were on this ship last Aug.
Some of them recognize me from the previous visits including the captain. The
captain and the chief officer are baptized Christians. I prayed with the chief

that the United State of America is a Christian country.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. (1Th. 5:28)
