and individually even though there was a commissar on board. (see picture 1,
2, 3, 4 for our group and their group). (see picture 5, 6, 7, 8 for the small

Filipino, and Chinese. We were on the first ship last Apr., and the second ship
last Aug. There were only three Chinese on board, captain, chief engineer, and
third officer, the rest was all Filipino. I gave them Scriptures, Jesus DVDs, and
Christian literature. Both ships were responsive.
3 ships on Thursiday:
All Indian; Filipino, and Norwegianan. We were on the first ship last Sep. Most
of the crew remembered me very clearly. I prayed with them again and gave
them the Christian literature. Three of the seamen had shore pass, and they
wanted me to take them to shopping. We walked five minutes and came back,
because they didn't wear hard hat and goggle in the plant. When will these
security ban be lifted up, so they can come ashore freely?
2 ship2 on Saturday:
TAIXING, and NEW CONQUEST - All Chinese; Filipino, Chinese, and
Indian. A revisit on the first ship again. This was the third time this week. I
was hoping some one can come with me to church on Sunday, but no body
can come ashore. The shore pass they had were all expired. There were ten
Chinese on the second ship. I met five of them, and gave five sets of Scripture,
Jesus DVD, and literature away. And left five sets in the mess room for the
others to pick up. I also gave the Indian and Filipino Jesus DVD's of their

Peace to you. The friends here send their greetings. (3 Jn. 15)
