Dear Friends, Family and Fellow Christians,

We have enjoyed our stay here in Hong Kong very much.

We have been blessed by

the Lord and His people.

On Sundays we meet from 8:30 in the morning and we don't

leave until after 9:00 that same evening. The Church meets in the living room of a rented house, and the attendance this Sunday was 32. Magdalena and I have been responsible for bringing the leaching morning, afternoon, and evening. Most of the congregation is made up of Filipino mothers who come here to work in

homes on a two-year contract before they can return home. The congregation is supporting

one or two Filipino ladies that have gone forth from the Fairview Christian Church here in Hong Kong. In the Philippines they have begun Bible studies with their own children and

family members and have begun three Sunday Schools for children in at least two mission

churches near where they live. Brother Ken Smyth, who has been the missionary here for over 23 years, gives

Bible Studies and teaches each member how to make disciples.

having Bible studies with

him every day for about 2 to 3 hours.

Magdalena and I are

The Lord has greatly

blessed us because we will be able to share in Mexico and else-where the methods that Ken

uses to teach how to disciple and to give Bible studies.

We will be returning to the States this coming September 27"*. We should be bacR^

in Mexico after the I®' of October. Lord willing we will be preaching in a Hispanic church

in Dallas, Texas before we return to Mexico.

Out Fall schedule is very busy on all weekends up until New Year's.

We are

for

revivals,

(Magdalena

City near the Pyramids of Teotihuacan.

Then we have the Continuation Committee \

Meeting for the National Mexican Christian Convention as well as a revival meeting in j

Blue Island, Illinois near Chicago with an Hispanic congregation.

'

we do plan to be home in between some of these activities. Our children do miss us

(so they say), are very supportive and happy that we have had this blessing to have come to

Hong Kong after nearly 20 years of having been invited by missionaries Ken Smyth and

Wong Yang Wing. Both were my roommates at Piatte Valley Bible College in Scottsbluff,

Nebraska.

Dear friends and family-please continue to pray for us. Continue supporting God's

work in every way possible. Pray for God's children that He has placed under our c^are for

these few short years. Children thatwecall our own, Berenice, Ana Silvia, Mark Caleb, and

Sheila Maysel. Our children are active in the Lord's work in Mexico on a local as well as

national level. Mark Caleb especially requires ourprayers as he decides how to use his life.

We had the blessing of leading our children to the Lord, but they still need our support and

prayer.

Continue to pray for my mother, Maysel.

She especially helps with our children

when Magdalena and I are traveling.

She takes time everyday to teach them English and

piano lessons. She shares her experience and love with her grand kids.

She

is

a

very

valuable resource for us and the work in Mexico. May the Lord still grant her good health

and years of life on this earth.

I give my sincere, "Thank you" to all of you who have had a part in the Lord's ministry through the Northrup families. We pray and invite others to join forces with us so we might still do more and better what the Lord expects us to do before He too calls us

home to Him.

Love in Christ,

Mark and Magdalena Northrup
