6 ships on Monday: ANGEL ARROW - Indian, and Myanmar. Only one Myanmar Christian on this
ship. He was the second officer. An Anglo-Myanmar, third generation in that
country. He has two brothers, and they are all seamen. We prayer with him and

was planted. (The picture shows the five other Myanmar seamen we shared the

1 ship on Wednesday:
ALAM MESRA - All Chinese. I took six seamen to Best Buy. We prayed
together in the parking lot.
5 ships on Thursday:
CHINESE EAGLE, BBC TUNISIA, and SHRIKE - All Filipino; Filipino, and
Ukrainian; All Romanian. All ships were receptive.
ORIENT SUNRISE, and COS BONNY - All Chinese. One Christian on the
first ship, the second officer. They were very open, and no complains. I think
that's because they all have short pass. I took pictures with four of them. Others
were willing to pray with me. (see attachments). I baptized one able seaman on
the second ship. His whole family are all Christians. The captain, chief officer,
bosun, and the carpenter all prayed with me to accept Jesus as their Lord
Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. (Tit. 3:15)
