China Mission's Trip Great Success!

Highlights in Beijing
"Good news from far away is like cold water to the thirsty." Proverbs 25:25
  • Meetings with the man that oversees all of religion for China.  Our meetings produced open doors to hold a forum of reconciliation this fall, then in 2011 a major conference for 12,000 people in Beijing about how Jesus can bring peace into their lives. 
  • Worship in a Home “underground” Church.
  • Shared encouragement from the Scriptures (2 Timothy 2:1-15) with our Brothers and Sisters in Christ at the "kick off” of a theological seminary.  There were about 40 home church pastors there... overseeing hundreds of home churches throughout China.
  • Presented a Chinese Talking Bible to the President of the new theological seminary.
  • Presented a video Internet phone (VoIP) to our main contact in China. This will allow us to communicate with each other for free. He is the grandson of the Last Emperor who was also a big movie star in China.  He is a Christian now and is the Director of the Christian community center that will be started in Beijing.

    God is opening doors in China and I’m blessed to have been able to be there as an ambassador of Jesus Christ.  Thank you for your financial and prayer support to make this happen.  

    Highlights in Hong Kong

    For those of you that don't know, I was born in Hong Kong and have not been back since I was 9-years-old, 41 years ago.

    • My daughter Alison was able to join me on this trip.
    • Enjoyed seeing the sites of Hong Kong with my cousin Candace, and good friend Edith... including my old school and home.
    • Had lunch with my 92-year-old uncle, A. de O. Sales, aka "The Portuguese God Father."  He is the patriarch of our family.  We were driven by his chauffeur in his beautiful Jaguar to the County Club he has lunch at everyday.  That was a real treat to see him again.  
    • Had lunch with my father's sister too.  I have not seen her in over 41-years. 
    • Enjoyed eating great Chinese food.  
    Prayer Requests
    1. Gracie's health, doctors are running many test on her after she blacked out at her last 2 soccer games.  She has not been feeling good.  She was planning to work this summer as a Medic at Forest Home, but that looks like it's not going to happen, because of her medical issues. 
    2. Please pray for me as I continue to facilitate some of the connections God has directed me to in order to see His plans come alive in China
    3. I have much work to do in the next month in order to prepare for a month of teaching and leading in our efforts in Malawi, Africa.  
    4. The project management of recording the New Testament in Yao (a language they use in Malawi) and the distribution of 100,000 Talking Bibles throughout the world.  Very important meeting with the Bible Society on June 18th. 
    5. Financial support raising for our family and our ministry.  It's been a difficult economy for monthly commitments.
    They are so many stories I can share with you about how God is working in China and in Africa.  If you are interested in hearing more, let me know and we can arrange a time to meet in person or over the phone.


    1. Our God is Awesome! He used you in wonderful ways to spread His Word. Our prayers are with you and Gracie for the doctors treating her.

    2. Welcome back and so pleased to see you spread the word in all corners of the world. We wil be parying for Gracie.

    3. You and your whole family are included in my prayers daily. Linda Rosso


    Thank you for your words of encouragement. The Sales Family
