All I can say is WOW! God has clearly been working in the hearts and lives of the people here in Taiwan. It was evident in our meeting how on fire for God the community is when almost 15-20 locals showed up. Nancy, one of the locals about to go on her YWAM DTS then do surfing ministry, prayed for us. Nancy's enthusiasm was contagious and helped lift our spirits.
I'm so far overwhelmed with the culture here. It is a highly fast paced, and always moving system with little rules when driving (at least from my point of view it looks like there's no rules). For an ADHD kid like myself, I can almost say that I thrive in places like this. I've begun fall in love with everything here because it feels like second nature, except for the language that is.. The people working in the coffee shop that we have done ministry in have been overly grateful for our presence as we help them with even the littlest of tasks like washing dishes.
Day 2 has been awesome, and I'm excited to keep making more and more lasting memories here within the community. God has been so good to our team already. A prayer request would be for energy for the team. Some of our team has struggled with jet lag. Another prayer request would be to pray for our church's second team that is in Ecuador. The team is getting hit with a contagious virus that is starting to making half of the team sick. Prayer for their health, energy, and high spirits on their team as the do God's work in South America.
Thank you again for following along as we do outreach and serve in Taiwan. It may not always be easy, but through it all we have God who has our backs more than anything else.
