Hi guys,

I mentioned about my upcoming trip on someone else's post but thought I would bring it up again and not piggyback on another's post.

I am leaving for China on June 24th and will be back on July 7th. We will be visiting some major cities as well as some smaller ones.

I will be doing some magic when I get the chance in addition to sharing and doing other activities that are planned.
I would appreciate your prayers for the people there, our team and for myself. Not only for while we are there but during our preparation time also.

Thanks a bunch and God bless.

GlenD

Update: June 17 2005

Well, one more week to go and I will be in China.

At our last team meeting, we were encouraged to pray for each other during these last few days before we head out (just in case we were'nt doing so already).
As it turns out one of our members could'nt make the meeting due to illness.
He should be fine before we leave however.

And then Wednesday evening found me in emergency until 4 in the morning with very uncomfortable and painful symptoms. I had a re-occurence of kidney stones and passed one there in the emergency restroom into my "sample" cup. At least I feel better now and hopefully won't be bothered by these things anymore for awhile.

One thing for sure, God must have a definite purpose in our upcoming visit there!

We were informed that we will have some access to computers and be able to email. If that's the case I will be posting from China here on the Café about our experience , etc and will be sure to do so when I get back.

If you feel like it or remember to... please pray for us and the things that God has in store while we are there.

Hi Glen,

Please be aware that almost everything you do (including your e-mails) will be monitored in China. Be careful what you talk about in your e-mails. You could possibly get yourself or your contact people in trouble. Even this posting could be monitored. (I'm not paranoid, just know many folks with this experience.)

May God bless your trip and bear much fruit for His glory.

I understand and hear you.
That's why I left out so many details about where we will be, what we'll be doing etc.

Glen,

You have my prayers as do the people of China and the others on the team traveling to do God's work in whatever manner it can be done.

God Bless!

Thanks Bro David.
It has been a very busy time getting prepared and everything and the time sure has gone by fast.
We are here in Shanghai now and will be meeting and speaking with some students later today. It is almost 8 am now as I write this from the internet Café across the street from our hotel.
Pray for all of the folks on our team as we have opportunuities to share today.
This afternoon we leave for another town (overnight train trip) to visit an orphanage. Children born with defects are often rejected and unwanted, I am sure we will all be touched deeply by this experience. I hope I can bring a smile to their faces with some magic and more importantly share the message of hope with them through some of the effects.
Pray for me and my assistant as we prepare to share with them tomorrow.
I will share more when I get back but your prayers are much appreciated.
Thanks again.

GlenD

GlenD, I'll pray for your safety and that many people will come to the saving knowledge of Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

Just to add that I am praying as well. Really exciting whenever I hear of people using magic to share the gospel and bring joy to people.
Many Blessings!!

Paul
