Dear faithful supporters,
Greetings from Taipei! The days and weeks quickly pass by and it’s hard to believe the end of September is almost here. The last month has kept us busy, but along with the challenges and responsibilities have come many rewards. We can now write, read, and understand between 50-100 Chinese characters; we have made contact with many of the Taiwanese who are pastors of TEAM church plants, and we had an excellent kick-off to our 3E English outreach ministry. God has brought to us 38 Seekers who have committed to join our outreach for the next 10 weeks.
- For a good understanding and clarity of mind as we study Chinese.
- Pray for the 38 Seekers who have registered and are now attending the first season of our new 3E outreach. For the next 10 weeks, we will be focusing on building relationships with them and praying for natural ways to share our faith.
- We continue to need monthly support. Please pray for our remaining need of $950/month.
- The first meeting of 3E went very smoothly yesterday. Praise the Lord for the way our co-workers (Taiwanese and Americans) have worked together and prepared for this new season. We know the Lord has great things in store!
- A new missionary family has recently arrived in Taipei and have already become good friends. Praise the Lord for the good connection He has given us, and pray that together we will have opportunities to reach out to the Lost here in Taipei.
Please continue checking our website for more frequent information and pictures. We are thankful for all of you and continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can specifically be lifting you up! To God be the glory, great things He has done!
For the Glory of God,
Erich and Kelley Schindler
