This summer I have the privilege of joining the Taiwan Summer Mission Team to spend 2 weeks in Ai Hsin Children’s Home in Taiwan. This is a very special opportunity for me personally as I was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and spent most of my childhood there until my family immigrated to Vancouver Canada when I was eleven. My family was invited to attend church when we first came to Canada and through God’s amazing love we all made personal decision to accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. After I became a believer and started serving in church as a youth, I had the opportunity to participate in 2 summer mission trips to Tien Mu Children’s Home in Taipei. I dearly treasure the time and relationship I had with all the children. I experienced God’s love for His children and learned to rely on His power to accomplish what He has called us to do.
Last October when Elder PinChung announced the possibility of sending a mission team to Taiwan this summer in partnership with Mustard Seed International, my heart was very moved by God’s work through this organization. Throughout the planning process, we saw how God hand selected each individual to be part of this team. Initially we did not have the minimum number of people needed to form this mission team but God is faithful and exceeded all our expectations by providing 17 members for this mission trip!!! Indeed, God is faithful! We now have a team with members of all ages (age ranging from 10-45+) with various talents and personalities. We are working very hard to prepare for the vacation bible school, English lessons, games/crafts and other activities to ensure our time at Ai Hsin will be fruitful. In addition, we are also busy fundraising for the trip and asking our family and friends to support us financially and most importantly through prayers.
Our team is looking forward to meet all the children and staff at Ai Hsin and hope to share our lives with all of you. My life changed when I accepted Christ and I was given a new identity in Christ– I hope to have the chance to share His love with all you during our time together.
Relishing in His grace,
