If you read somewhere about 2 years ago, I went to the doctor to get my thyroid checked because I had many symptoms of hypothyroidism. My blood test show that I do have it, yet, no one in Taiwan would treat me. They gave me other medicines for the symptoms, but did not address the root problem. Well, I finally saw my doctor today and she was shocked that I wasn't being, today is the first day that I'm going to start feeling better...

Thank you, God!! :)

Tulsa, Oklahoma!

I made it! I've never been to the OK. Brooke's friend, Funke, picked me up from the airport and we surprised the doctor at the hospital! :) We couldn't stay long because she had patients, but I'll see her in a few hours.

So, what's the first thing I did in Tulsa? Pass dat tract yo!!


Someone from Houston texted Funke about a bus flipping over and asking if the person wore a helmet and to call them right away. She didn't know who it was, so I called.

I left a voicemail saying that they don't know who I am, but I gave them the testamony about my accident in Taiwan, then the Law, and finally God's grace and message of salvation!

Everytime someone calls me with a wrong number, I'm going to give them the Gospel now!

Revelation Generation Evangelism Training

This Saturday I went to Rev Gen ( training, although, I won't be attending. We had the Way of the Master Crash Course in Evangelism. I started out in the English speaking group, but was convinced by some new friends to join the Spanish speaking group Since I've already completed, SOBE, it was alright. And to my surprise, I understood 90% of what Jonathan was saying...Wow!! But then the fun part was time to practice sharing the Gospel IN SPANISH!!!! Mine took the longest because I had to think a lot...ask for help for words and phrases I didn't know how to express...but praise God! I did it!! It wasn't perfect (and that's cool with me) but it was good enough for someone to understand.

Afterwards, we went out to preach the Word in New Brunswick, NJ. I went with my new friends and a couple of us got separated from the rest. God is so good and faithful!! As we turned the corner, Jonathan was praying that we would actually have a conversation with someone about the Gospel. A few steps later, I heard Yvonne say that she needed a good laugh. I immediately seized the opportunity and handed her a "101 Worlds Funniest One Liners" tracts. We struck up a conversation and we were on our way. Yvonne believed that her drug addiction was sending her to hell. We told her that drugs don't send people to hell, but when it becomes an idol in one's life, that person has broken the 1st and 2nd Commandments. The consequences of breaking God's Law (sin) is hell, not the drugs themselves.

On the same block, we met Pat. I grieve for Pat. Pat said that he deserves hell because of the things he has done. He believes it would be right for God to judge him and not allow him into heaven. HOWEVER, he does NOT believe in forgiveness. With a few more questions, we learned that Pat does not believe that God exists. We begged him to consider and think about the things we told him. Forgiveness exists. God is real. Death is inevitable. Time is short. How will God judge you according to His Word on judgement day?

I felt so incredibly encouraged and was glad I joined the Spanish speaking group! So encouraged, I might add, that on the way into Manhattan, I was sitting next to a guy from Mexico that didn't speak English! He looked at the book a was reading and saw my tract (which I was using as a bookmark). I saw him glance away when I caught him but instantly gave it to him. I witnessed using the Law and telling him the Good News of the Gospel all in Spanish!!! He was completely open and receptive of the Gospel!!! I pray for Marcelito. After that, we had a good conversation in Spanish about where we both where going and what we did for work.

I'm going to start reading my Spanish Bible again....I really WANT to practice more!!

4th of July Coney Island/FDR Drive Witnessing

I met a friend from Alabama and his group. We went to Coney Island for the Hot Dog competition. I ended up witnessing to some big dudes. I was a little afraid of the second guy. He was a Muslim and was about to go loco on me. His friend, who was standing behind him, kept saying, "You need to hear this. You need Jesus!" She said she was a Christian, so I gave her a tract and I encouraged her to share the Gospel with him because it's so important!

After Coney Island, we headed to the FDR Drive to set up the prayer station. I had the privilage to share the Gospel with two girls: one from Russia and the other from Kazahstan (who turned out to be a Muslim who said we worship the same god). The two girls were with their Christian friend who has taken the girls to church. But nothing had come of it. By the grace of God, a clear Gospel message was given to these girls!

After the girls left, it started to rain. I met Ellen and she, Lily, and I began to entertain the crowd with some patriotic songs and hymns. We got some applause every now and then from the crowd. It was interesting.

Union Square Preaching

Look!! I blend in with the trees!!! :)

Battery Park Preaching

I got in trouble with the Park Ranger. When I told people that we are not promised tomorrow, I mentioned that the ferry could sink. OOOPS! I realized it right after I said it. The park ranger told a friend of mine and he told me that she said not to say it because someone could get on the ferry and panic. (I understood this). Apparently, someone said the same thing yesterday. :)

Preaching, Eating, Chillin' with the Guys from Tejas!

I LOVE making new friends!! And these guys not only preach with passion but with compassion. Amen and amen!

Come On Somebody!!!

I went to see my dad for the first time in YEARS yesterday. I really wasn't excited about it. Last time I saw him and his girlfriend, I was truly uncomfortable. BUT this time was so different. I got to share the Gospel with his girlfriend and her son. It was so amazing!!! The 12 year old boy's mom had a Bible. I explained the Torah to him and turned to Exodus 20 and took him through the Ten Commandments. He told me he was in trouble if he died. After, I gave him the Good News of the Gospel!! His response..."Jesus did that?!? That's so sweet!" It was such a precious and honest response. For the rest of the night, he (and his mom) allowed me to teach him about salvation.

At the end of the night, he said he wanted to come see my friends and I preach. He wants to hand out tracts!!

Come on somebody!! Praise the Lord!!

(My mom didn't like that I shared the Gospel with him. I got lectured on the way home about it...No surprise. But they are coming over for dinner on Sunday...and so is Nick...we will take him out to preach for a little while. I pray he gets saved)!!

We also went to my old house in Brooklyn.

If you were on the roof, this is what you would see:

Boogie Down Boonies

Thank you all for the birthday greetings!! I love you guys!! Special thanks to my love, Irene, who called me from Taiwan!!! I miss you, girl!! Nick and I headed out to surprise our girl, Amanda, who lives somewhere in PA. It was so easy to get there. I enjoyed the drive. Nick had to suffer listening to me sing for 3 hours each way. I was so excited to see Amanda!! It made my month. I can't wait to go back to see her...and I really can't wait until she comes to visit us in New York!

Just a reminder, I'm not coming out to Indiana or Rochester. So, if you want to see me, come to NYC! :) I've been overwhelmed with feeling compelled to share the Gospel in my hometown. But remember, I still love you all!

When the Saints Go Marching In...

I had the honor and privilage of laboring with my brother and sisters this past weekend in New York City (See Just a few highlights, as it was a very different experience from that in Taiwan. In Taiwan, people will listen to you and if they don't care, then they walk away...But this past Saturday:

1. I handed a tract to a guy on the train and he whacked my hand with his newspaper. I looked at him like "why did you do that?" and told him, "God bless you!!" And so many people saw that!! I praise God for holding my tongue!!

2. Our sister, Alex, was preaching on the train and a man stepped up to her "threatening" her. Another man got up, and stepped up to the man saying that if Alex was a guy, he would never threaten her, so sit down!

3. While witnessing to a young man, I was threatened to be shot with a .45 because I would stop talking about the grace of God, but that 20 year old boy was hanging to every word we were saying!!! This man was actually filled with demons.

4. We were handed an atheist tract which read, "God is Fake."

5. A lady on the train, kept telling us how sorry she feels for us because we "don't know any better" and should be reading Christopher Hitchens. (hmmm...he writes a lot of junk about how God doesn't exists).

6. A Muslim man even walked up to me to ask about the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ after I handed him a tract!!!! He was so receptive to hearing the Word of God! It so blessed my heart to see that and to be a part of it.

7. And finally, we were so encouraged by a number of Christians who stepped off trains after we were done preaching to either pray with us or talk with us!!!

I give all glory and honor to my Lord and Savior for the opportunities we had. Friends, everyday 150,000 people die and many will go to hell if they die in sin. Let's not waste anymore time.
