We’ve been back in the US for only three days, but already the trip seems like a distant past. And yet, when I look back at the pictures, it feels like it was just yesterday.
I’ve been diligent in making sure that I was sleeping according to US time, but last night the time difference finally caught up to me. I was at staff meeting at church, and was pretty much useless and non-awake. I probably should’ve just stayed at home.
I’m thankful for this trip, for the many opportunities that we’ve had to serve, but even more importantly, for the challenges that we faced, both on a team and personal level, that’s forced us to grow and mature.
Here’s a wrap up of our last few days in Taiwan:
Kelly glows when she reads the Bible.
Lincoln sharing during Bible study!
Frank sharing his thoughts with us.
We had dinner Wednesday evening at an exclusive club at the Grand Hotel, courtesy of Dr. Yeh. We had the privilege of meeting with Pastor Chou, founder of the Bread of Life church. Unfortunately the lighting was not favorable, and my camera did not have flash.
Here we are, on the way to the MRT to get to Dr Yeh’s small group meeting, where we would be playing for worship for their gospel outreach meeting.
And here we are, on the MRT, on the way back, after the meeting. According to Alice, there was a record turnout of new visitors. At least 10 people came to Christ that day. Amen!
Here’s Jeiji at Bible study.
The rest of the group.
Here we are at Friendship Presbyterian Church, worshiping with the College fellowship!
Johnathan giving it his all.
Jeiji playing so fast his hands were a blur.
Saturday morning, brother Nicolas invited us out to breakfast, and then to his house for a time of worship with his family. Here we are before the mountains of food was brought out to us.
That’s Nicolas in the middle, our host for Saturday!
While the other meeting was going on at Nicolas’ house, I had to step out to host the Friday night Potter’s House meeting. I was the only one attending from Taiwan.
Here’s Alice with Diane, our awesome host in Taipei! She let the Wu family plus Kelly invade her house for two weeks. God bless her!
And that about wraps up our trip to Taiwan. Please pray for Johnathan, who’s still in Taiwan visiting with his father’s family.
