Our story with Taiwan began when we were both in high school. Our church in Amarillo, TX, Trinity Baptist Church, sent a team to Taichung, Taiwan every summer. We both went to Taiwan on these short-term trips multiple times.
By the time we were in college, we both knew God was calling us to move to Asia one day. After graduating from college, our good friend Todd Blackhurst invited us to join the work he was doing in Taiwan. Todd had been our pastor at Trinity Baptist when we were younger, but the Lord had called him and his family to move to Taiwan in 2013. He formed our organization, Mission Taiwan, when he moved overseas.
During the 7 years he has been living in Taiwan, God has grown Mission Taiwan exponentially. What started as one summer camp with one university has grown to multiple events throughout the year and a partnership with many universities. God is also using Mission Taiwan to plant churches led by Taiwanese pastors. After learning Mandarin Chinese, we hope to take over Mission Taiwan’s University Ministry, coordinating English camps with teams from the U.S. and connecting with students through weekly conversation classes.
In the time leading up to our move in Summer 2021, we are meeting with individuals and churches to build a support team. Mission Taiwan operates solely from the prayers and financial gifts of individuals and churches. As we join Mission Taiwan, we are working to raise our own support. We know that unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. We are trusting that God will go before us as we seek to be fully supported financially. Also, we are asking people to partner with us by praying for us regularly. Only God can save Taiwanese people with the truth of the gospel. We recognize that we desperately need for God to work and would love for you to be a part of what He is doing in our lives and in Taiwan for His glory.
We would love for you to consider supporting us by praying for us, receiving our newsletter, and giving financially. Please take some time to pray and ask God if He would have you join our team. Our partners are as much a part of Mission Taiwan as we are!
