|Let the Magnificent Adventure BeginChina 2013Praise the Lord!The team and travelers are having victory over logistical and physical challenges. Please continue to pray for great favor, wisdom, and continued victory for this anointed trip.
Here are some pictures from the China trip.
On Wednesday the cruise ship docked and most of the travelers participated in the first excursion to Fengdu or Ghost City. There are supposedly 500 steps leading up to the temple there and our oldest traveler made it all the way to the top!
At the end of the day we returned to the ship for dinner and Marilyn’s continued her teachings on Daniel.
Tuesday began with everyone gathering for a delicious breakfast, prayer, and praise and worship. The first stop of the day is Ciqikou which is famous for teas and the porcelain in which the teas are contained. This is a beautiful, ancient city where lots of shopping was available—which the travelers love. After some time there they proceeded on to Chongqing city bus tour. After the tour the group boarded the President Prime Cruise Ship. The group had a private meeting room so it’s wonderful for all the meal times and allows Marilyn time to continue teaching on Daniel. She covered chapters 3 and 4 this day.
Marilyn preached a Sunday morning service to a packed room. Many of the people who were at the Saturday meeting approached the travelers asking for more prayer. It was standing room only and most of the travelers had to stand outside the room to allow the locals access.
In the afternoon, everyone gathered at the hotel and Marilyn began her teaching on the book of Daniel. She covered chapters 1 and 2 and the travelers were eager to hear more. She ended the meeting time with a
Q & A session that was a real treat for everyone.
No tours were taken on this first phase of the trip because Guangzhou is an industrial city with no tourist attractions. However, some of the more adventurous travelers ventured out in the evenings as all of China’s cities are very lit up and colorful at night.
On Saturday morning the group met for a lovely breakfast. Marilyn prayed over the travelers and anointed their hands for ministry.
The group attended a local business leader’s monthly meeting where attendance was about 1,000 people. Local seminary students were also in attendance. Marilyn prayed for healing of neck problems. After prayer those gathered broke up into small groups and the travelers had time to pray with them for many needs.
Praise the Lord! The travelers had a smooth flight and arrived safely in Guangzhou, China. The arrived early in the morning and had the day to rest and get ready for the orientation dinner the first night. Their 5-star hotel is spectacular!
Marilyn showed a video from a previous trip to China and every was excited for their first ministry meeting the next day. More ministry updates to come! Stay tuned.
