We have been in Hong Kong for a month, while we work to get new visas to return to Macau. The visas has not been granted yet and may continue to take some time. Nevertheless, we are having a very special experience in Hong Kong.
We have been assigned to work in Discovery Bay. It is a beautiful part of Hong Kong. It is a community of mostly expatriates or wealthy Chinese. We just moved here on the weekend. The other day a Chinese man was explaining why Chinese people are generally well off financially. He said, "If a Chinese man earns $5, then he tries to live on $1.5-2. If an American earns $5, then he spends $7." If a Chinese man gets a raise, he still tries to live on $2, but if an American gets a raise they spend $10. It was interesting to begin to understand how Chinese accumulate wealth.

We had a chance to see a good friend, Brent and Cathy Dover, and the little girl they adopted from China. It was a special experience. They have a beautiful little girl and she has a wonderful set of parents. This was a blessing to both.

We pleased to be representatives of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a blessing in our life.
