Thank you for your prayers for us! We arrived in Taiwan in August 2016 and are currently in our two years of full-time language study before we move to Yunlin County to join our team in church planting among the Taiwanese working class.

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Eph. 3:20-21)

REASONS TO REJOICE
• Taiwanese friends – There’s nothing like good friends to make a place feel like home. We’re so thankful for relationships the Lord has given us and for deepening friendships with Taiwanese families. As these friendships grow, we’ve had opportunities to share more about our faith and answer questions about what we believe.
REQUESTS TO REMEMBER
• Continued progress in language learning – Little by little we’re communicating and understanding more, but we still have a long way to go! Please pray for us to be diligent in our studies and bold in using our Taiwanese! Pray for good recall of which tone each word is when we speak! The 7 tones definitely add an interesting dynamic to language learning! We’re so thankful for great teachers at our language school and their patience as we learn.
• Believers in Taiwan – A Christian neighbor friend shared about the spiritual bondage she experiences and the fear she has whenever she is near a temple. Our nanny shared the challenge of being a Christian in her family as her parents worry that when they die, no one in the family will continue with ancestor worship and care for them in the afterlife. We had the opportunity to speak to a HS Bible club again and these students face pressure at school as they choose to follow Christ. Please pray for our Christian friends and for these students to walk faithfully with Jesus, that His Light will shine brightly through them in the darkness.

Thank you for your faithful support and prayers on our behalf. You are one of our many reasons to rejoice! May you have a blessed month as we celebrate that Jesus is alive!
