Hi from Hong Kong!
I'm sure by now you've heard about the powerful typhoon that struck the Philippines, triggering floods and cutting power in Manila. Can you believe we left just hours before it hit? We may have been on the last flight out! Thankfully our friends and ministry partners there are all OK... no flooding in their homes and roofs are still in place.
Jeff and I are now in Hong Kong! We met with ministry leaders yesterday about the possibility of bringing my testimony here in the future. Today, the entire city is shut down as Typhoon Nesat edges just south of us. Donít worry we are safe and are being spoiled by our new friends in China. Resting here for one more day before the looong journey home. :-)
Now the BIG news! We just got confirmation from our team in Manila that a staggering total of 1,133 people gave their lives to Christ through our evangelistic outreaches!!! I'm so humbled by this wonderful news, that God would allow us to be a part of this great harvest. Would you join us in praying for these new believers? Certainly, we understand the spiritual battle that will surely take place in their hearts and minds in the days and weeks ahead.
And to all of you who invested financially and prayerfully through our ministry, you can know that your investment has yielded eternal results! On behalf of all the lives that have been forever changed in the Philippines, I THANK YOU!
Love & Hugs Across the Globe,
