Yet, Nancy and I went to Hermann Hospital to visit a badly injured Chinese seaman. He was the carpenter on the ship RUI NING 5 which we visited a month ago here in Houston. He felt down from a twenty feet high crane to the deck below. His both legs were broken, and ankles were crashed. One of the doctors said to me it will take six month to one year to get fully recovered. We read to him Psalm 103,3-4 "who forgives all your sins, and heals all your diseases, who redeems you life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion." Please pray for his recovery. His name is Chuan Min Du. While we were there, he was asking how to become a Christian. We introduced Jesus to him to be his friend. He repented his sins and accepted Jesus Christ in his heart.

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

Please keep on praying for negotiating with the Houston International Seafarers Center and
the Port of Houston Authority about the gate lists. And Ying Dau Lu's daughter Kelly Ma,
she has breast cancer, stage 3A. Right now she is under chemo therapy treatment.

God bless all
