This past Saturday marked the first pre-Alpha event for our 2011 Fall Bilingual Alpha Season- a House Party! Around 30 people (about half non-Christians) gathered for this event, which was held at the beautiful home of a sister from church, in the mountains of Taipei. We enjoyed playing games together, singing songs, eating a delicious lunch, and then the main event was watching “The Blind Side” together and having time for small group discussion and sharing. It was a fun time, enjoyed by everyone. One of the non-Christians said that the day “exceeded her expectations and was more fun that she thought it would be”. Then yesterday at church was told she is wanting to sign up for the Alpha Course – praise God!
We have a tremendous team working together this season, and are all excited about what the Lord is going to do. Besides leading the team of Western co-workers this season, we both are also involved in the Chinese small groups as helpers. We look forward to using our language ability in this way, and building relationships with the non-Christians that attend.
Below are a few pictures from the House Party – enjoy!!
