Dear Faithful Friends and Supporters,
Greetings from Taipei! It is good to be back ‘home,’ and we thank you all for praying for us as we traveled. We had a wonderful home assignment in the USA, and came back refreshed and ready for ministry.
As many of you know, in February we began our first missional community group (house church). Since returning to Taiwan and meeting with our Taiwanese pastor and his wife, we have been given the official green light to use this missional community as a beginning for what, Lord willing, will grow into a house-church movement across Taipei city. Our vision is to use a “scattered and gathered” style of church. This means groups are meeting in homes during the week for church, and once every month come together in the community for corporate worship as the larger body. We are thankful to have their blessing, allowing us to invest our time into this church plant among the un-churched in Taipei.
How can you being praying for us?
- Please pray for our co-worker team (6 in total) to have unity and wisdom, as we desire to effectively reach the un-churched around us.
- We are planning to have our first gathered church service in the community on Christmas Eve. Pray for the preparations, and for openness as we invite people.
Let’s praise the Lord together!
- Our landlord graciously agreed to let us sign a short 6-month contract, allowing us the chance to move to a bigger place next Spring.
- Through Max, we have had opportunities to interact with numerous people on the street, neighbors, bus drivers, etc. We are thankful for doors God is opening through our little guy!
Thank you for faithfully standing behind us in prayer and support. We are blessed to serve together with you.
For the Glory of God,
Erich and Kelley Schindler
Max loves meeting new people every day, and is opening many doors for us into our local neighborhood. Please continue to pray for ways to share God’s love with our Taiwanese friends!
