Dear Friends and Supporters,
Here is an email update we just sent to all of our monthly supporters, letting them know of an important change in our support processing. We wanted to share it with all of you so you know what is going on. Please pray with us for our remaining support need to be met before we return to Taiwan on January 18! Click here for more details on our support level.

We wanted to let all of our financial supporters know of an important change to the way we will receive financial support in the future. During our recent one-year TEAM Serve commitment we spent much time in prayer and fasting about which way the Lord wanted us to proceed once this year-long commitment was finished. During this year the Lord gave us many exciting missions opportunities through our local Taiwanese church. Taiwanese people are coming to know Jesus as their Savior and committing their lives to Him, and we very much feel led to continue this fruitful Kingdom work.
With this said, we have prayerfully decided to fully partner with our Taiwanese Church as full-time missionaries. We have been accepted with a missions organization called Shepherd’s Staff Missions Facilitators. They exist to empower local churches to better serve career missionaries on the mission field. One important service they provide to us is processing all received financial support. You can get to know Shepherd’s Staff Mission Facilitators better through their website: www.shepsstaff.org. This decision is a result of many meetings with TEAM Taiwan’s field leadership. In the end, we all recognized that transitioning to Shepherd’s Staff Mission Facilitators would be the best way for us to fulfill the vision God has given us to reach Taiwan.
TEAM finished processing our financial support on November 30th, so we would very much appreciate if you were able to change your current financial support from TEAM to Shepherd’s Staff before that date. To set this up, please visit our personal missionary profile page on the Shepherd’s Staff website.
We greatly appreciate your partnership with us. Because of the importance of this information, we would ask you to send us a quick response email letting us know you have received this notification.
Finally, transparency to our supporters is of utmost importance to us. If you would like more information on this transition, please feel free to write us anytime! Also, we have just published a special “Accountability” page on this website, in order to provide our US supporters with quality, objective, accountability on our life and ministry in Taiwan.
