We flew into this beautiful Pacific Island nation and stayed at a hotel in the capital city of Pago Pago.

I had my five children with me on this trip. They are Gina, Joel, Joy, Joshua and Joseph. The people were very welcoming to the cross and us. As I walked the island from one end to the other the reception was glorious. Many came to Jesus to pray and follow Him in life.

I preached at a couple of churches and did interviews with the newspaper, TV and radio. It was a powerful witness.

I have lost all photos of carrying the 12-foot cross in American Samoa but I do have a couple of newpaper articles.Samoaamerican1

One of the most beautiful views of my life was looking out through the palm trees at a small cove with the ocean beyond. The beauty was simply awesome.

This was some of the best snorkeling I have ever done in the world also. It looked like there were millions of fish in the crystal clear waters.

We spent a week at this wonderful place.
