Dear Faithful Friends and Supporters,
Greetings from Taipei! This is the last update we’ll be sending from the apartment we’ve called “home” for almost 4 years. As our landlord and his family are moving back in, we are in the midst of packing and moving to a new place. We thank the Lord for His provision of temporary housing for our housemates and us, as we await their visa situation to stabilize before finding permanent housing together. We’ve had a wonderful 4 years in this apartment and have been blessed to allow numerous others to call this place ‘home’ as well during the last years. It’s our prayer that our next home can be used for the Lord just as much as this one has!
How can you being praying for us?
- Please pray for our housemates, Niall, Hannah, and Edie (1 year old) Dunne, as well as the band Niall is a part of (Transition). They have recently encountered visa/work problems that are out of their control and have the potential to send them back to England. We trust the Lord together for a miracle that will allow them to continue serving in Taiwan through their music ministry!
- Please pray for an added measure of strength and grace in these extra busy days as we balance moving, various ministries and study, and normal daily responsibilities. May our focus stay on Christ!
Let’s praise the Lord together!
- Praise the Lord for 2 great Bible studies Kelley has the privilege to lead each week at the Garden of Hope. The groups are a mix of Christians and non-Christians, and each week has great discussion and input. Pray for closed hearts to be opened, and for open hearts to be renewed!
- Erich has recently joined the “Discipleship Training Department” at our Taiwanese church. Praise the Lord for this good fit for him, and for the doors that will open for ministry because of his position there.
“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.” (Ephesians 3:20f.)
For the Glory of God,
Erich and Kelley Schindler
