Newsletter, October 2013
For the past three years in March I have been privileged to help with a Pastor’s conference in Ho chi Minh City (formerly SaiGon) and Phan Thiet, Viet Nam. The first one was with a prominent denomination and for the past couple years with another prominent denomination. The attendance for the first one I was involved with we had a low attendance but for the last couple years we have had a very good crowd with the first year having three hundred and this past March having five hundred Pastor’s and leaders. For the past couple year’s we have had a blind pastor attending and I have watched him as he has prayed even for other’s after the we have had communion on the last day of the conference, he is really anointed. I asked one of the local Pastor’s there in Ho Chi Minh City if he was born blind and was told me that he was not. My Pastor friend asked if I had not heard about him and I said no I haven’t seems, he was the number one gangster in Viet Nam and was based out of DaNang. His second in command tried to kill him by slitting his throat and putting his eye sight out. The second in command did not succeed as you can tell by me telling his story but because he like Paul had his Damascus road experience and today is serving Jesus Christ and leading other’s to His saving knowledge. Sometimes I wonder what our Damascus road experience either will be or has been to get us wanting to see more people brought to the saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 6:8 says “Then I heard the voice of the Lord Saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me.” We are always saying that someone needs to do something but have we ever prayed Lord what can I do or Lord you are sure ministering to someone today and telling them that they need to go in your name and minister but have we ever prayed “Lord send me?” I have found that the next spiritual experience that we can have next to our salvation is when we lead someone to that same salvation experience that we experienced however many years ago it may have been. We may even have loved one’s that are not serving God and we are concerned about them and we should be especially in these times that we live in because we can see that God is getting ready to send His Son Jesus Christ back to earth for His Bride.
I want to invite you to go with some of us veterans and some minister’s to Viet Nam and Cambodia to be able to do some missions work. Just out of Ho Chi Minh City in Dong Nai there is an orphanage of both mentally and physically challenged children and some are babies but they basically have no play ground equipment at all. We have found a place where we can buy some play ground equipment for them, I have been looking at a double sliding board that we can get for about $500.00 and I believe that we will obtain enough money to purchase that for them. I have chosen this orphanage because hardly anybody go there most want to go to a deaf and blind school in Ho Chi Minh City and that’s great but I want to be able to help and minister to just more than that orphanage. Now some of these children live with their parents who bring them to the school/orphanage during the day so that they can go to work and after they get off they go back and pick them up and take them home. They even have one little girl that is really cute but they found her in the garbage where her parents had thrown her and her mouth had been literally eaten up by fire ants. I have met one boy that just smiled and laughed and all he wanted to do is shake your hand and just hold on to you. I’m inviting you to go with me this coming March 13 – 28, 2014 and help put this double slide together for these children.
We will also be going to Hue City, Khe Shan and even to HaNoi along with Cambodia to the “Killing Fields”. This past March we attended an International Church in HaNoi where we were asked to tell who we were and what we were doing and I told them I bring Viet Nam veterans back to Viet Nam and Cambodia, right after the service this young man came to me and introduced himself as Major Victor Chin USMC Marine Attache and inquired if I would be interested in having us vets meet with his Marines and tell them what it was like fighting in Viet Nam during the war. I replied yes sir I would love for us to meet and tell them what it was like and if they wanted to ask any questions would like that also. I am even thinking that on one of these trips we could meet like at Khe Shan and show them some of the places and explain it to them.
Please consider this a personal invitation from me to you to go with us to Viet Nam and Cambodia this coming March 2014 and even invite your pastor or bring your wife, children or grandchildren if you like. I know my grandson has said he is going to go back with me and I’m hoping that it will be this coming March. You will find an application on this web site or get in touch with me and I’ll send you an application.
Again come go with us to Cambodia/Viet Nam this March 13 – 28, 2014 the cost is $3499.00 per person and that covers all airlines tickets, visas, 4 and 5 star hotels and 3 meals a day. It’s a return trip or a first time trip that you will not want to miss. You will even set in on the last day of the Pastor’s conference and be thanked by Vietnamese for your service to their country and be told if the war had not ended like it did some of us would not be back now ministering like we are.
