Schindler Update 2012_07_18

July 18, 2012

Dear Faithful Friends and Supporters,

Greetings from Taipei! The month of July has brought changes to our schedules, as Kelley is spending 3 weeks in the US. She’s been visiting family and will be attending a good friend’s wedding this weekend in Syracuse, NY. Besides his regular work at Truth Church, Erich has been busy meeting with different church-planting pastors and missionaries in Taipei city, and exploring the new things God is doing in the broader Taiwanese church! He very much looks forward to Kelley’s return to Taiwan on July 25 ūüėÄ

How can you being praying for us?

  • This Friday evening, along with two other Taiwanese brothers, Erich will be praying for a Taiwanese Christian brother to experience freedom from bondage in his life, related to a homosexual lifestyle, poor self-image, addictions, and demonic oppression. Please pray for wisdom and the Spirit’s guidance during this time!
  • Please pray for Kelley to be a blessing and help to her friend during the upcoming wedding, and for a safe return to Taipei.
     

Let’s praise the Lord together!

  • A group of foreigners recently prayed for Pastor Moses, who had woken up with a cold that morning. By noon his sore throat and other cold symptoms had completely gone away! Praise the Lord for His healing work in our midst!
  • Just yesterday a new foreigner, David, appeared on our doorstep. He’s a Wheaton grad and will be here for 6 months to do an internship at Truth Church. This is an unexpected blessing from the Lord, who knows we need new workers for the harvest!

As always, we want to stay in close connection with you. Please feel free to send us any prayer requests you might have, or let us know how our Lord has been working in your life recently. We love to be part of your journey too! 

For the Glory of God,
Erich and Kelley Schindler

Temple Parade Outside our Apartment

Dear Friends,

Taiwan is a really strange place at times. Mostly we don’t think so as we’ve gotten very used to the place, but some days you see something and just end up going “What in the world??” Today was one of those days. I was sitting in our apartment reading a book, when…

Local temples will go on big parades around the neighborhood once a year or so in celebration of certain temple holidays. Maybe it’s the god’s birthday or a commemoration of some important event in the life of a good person who later became venerated as a deity.

Please continue praying with us for Taiwan’s Revival, and for everyone to experience freedom from oppressive belief systems!
