We are on our way home.

After two amazing weeks in Korea and China, we are at Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea. We flew here from Dalian, China a few hours ago. Later today we'll catch a plane to Detroit where we (Ray and Marlene) will spend the night while Skip Olson flies on to Chicago. Tomorrow morning we'll fly to Tupelo, arriving home 43 hours after waking up in China this morning.

We don't have time or space to share all that we saw God do on our trip. We hope you'll read these three blog entries that give you a sense of what we experienced in China this week:

Hundreds Attend Sunday Night Student  Event in Dalian  
Monday Morning Miracle   
Preach Less, Pray More


We asked many of our friends to pray specifically for the big student event in Dalian last Sunday night. God answered above and beyond our expectations. Because of government pressure, Christian events like this rarely take place in public, much less on a university campus. Here's a note written by a Christian university student who attended the event:

Yes, It's a wonderful speech last Sunday night, even we can see that an excellent preach for God together with us.

When we prepared this speech we got some troubles, the things doesn't go well as we think, But God be together with us for we see a graceful and  competent speech. I wanna to share you that In China, the government can't allow preach in public, So maybe they think that (we are) lawless. We all shocked for your speech for your speech from the beginning to the end are talking about the gospel, the wisdom of eternity because no one can make a speech like that in the Chinese's university. Thanks be to God our father. He always does amazing things. We all filled with joy and give thanks to God. And we thank you for your message.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer. Without you we could not do what God has called us to do. Together we are able to encourage people everywhere to keep believing in Jesus.

By the way, we videotaped the Sunday night event and hope to put part of it online so you can see for yourself what happened at the university in Dalian.
