He sent me this wonderful E-Card Christmas and New Year's Greetings from Hong Kong on Friday, December 9, 2016, Please Click Here to see Donavan Ng fly over the tall buildings that house his church, college, graduate school, and Stone Houses Family Coffee Cafe. It is animated and Donavan gives a greetings at the close of the video.
What's more . . . Donavan Ng is a personal friend of Hugh H. Morgan, editor of Hugh's News. It is indeed an honor to know and have Donavan Ng to be my friend. He saw to it that Melvine, Greg, and I had VIP treatment in Hong Kong at the 5th IPHC Global Assembly in Hong Kong in May of 2015, and our flight and visit in Beijing, China. He assigned Steven Cheng to be our personal escort, guide, and interpreter. He was outstanding.
My mother, Julia Payne Morgan, served as a missionary to Hong Kong and Pakhoi, China from 1920-1929 following her graduation from Holmes Bible and Missionary Institute (Holmes Bible College) in Greenville, SC. Julia met Hugh Henry Morgan from Texas and Oklahoma while they were students. My dad waited 9 years for Julia Payne to come home from China. They were married at the 1929 General Conference in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Bishop Dan T. Muse, the first bishop of the west, a friend of my dad's, performed their wedding. I have an older sister, Mary Evelyn Morgan McDuff, now deceased. She married R. H. McDuff, the son of Fred McDuff, a member of the First Pentecostal Holiness Church in Birmingham who served with honesty, integrity, and distinction at the Chief of Police of Birmingham and Sheriff of Jefferson County at the same time. He was noted for never taking a bribe. He was like a straight arrow.
It is most interesting that when I became President of Southwestern College (now Southwestern Christian University) that I hired two men whose last names were Muse. First, I hired Scott Muse, Jr. and last Dan T. Muse, Jr. to help me in the area of finance. Scott Muse succeeded me as president after I resigned and went back into the pastorate, Good Shepherd Pentecostal Holiness Church in Birmingham, Alabama, formerly the First Pentecostal Holiness Church.
