Our first year is in the books! Fourteen American friends from three of our supporting churches came to Taichung this past week. We spent time at the National Taichung University of Education, National Taichung University of Sports and Providence University. Trips like this make a profound impact in the lives of Taiwanese young people, and in the lives of those who come.
So what do we do?
First, we look for ways to serve. Using Jesus as our example, we walk into every situation and say, what is the need? Here, in the University setting, English is the need. So we are able to provide Taiwanese students a much needed opportunity to practice speaking with a native English speaker.
In addition, we give the students and professors alike our friendship. Not only an exchange of culture,but a real relationship that often lasts beyond the actual trip.
Most importantly, we share the Gospel. Outside of the classroom, we have lots of opportunities to talk about life and faith. Maybe you would consider coming over to join or lead a trip here in Taichung. The opportunities are waiting, we just need people to say yes.
