Dear Friends and Supporters,
Greetings from Taipei! Although Thanksgiving is not celebrated here, we will take time to gather with other American friends to celebrate and thank God for His goodness to us. And a big part of that goodness comes through people like you! Each day we are thankful to know that people around the world are lifting us up in prayer, supporting, and encouraging us.
Prayer and Praise
- Thanksgiving Community Service: Our house church network is holding a combined lunch and church service at a local coffee shop on Sunday, the 23rd. Lots of our non-Christian friends have been invited, and we are trusting Him for great things! Pei Pei and Qian Ling (the two moms mentioned in past updates; see attached picture) are both coming with their families. Please pray that their attendance will be just the beginning of them finding new life in Christ!
- House Church Leaders Training: We have been taking the two other couples who help lead our house church groups through a video training series called “How to equip a missional community,” produced by the SOMA network. Please pray that this training will help us all grow in our vision and wisdom for discipling others.
- Baby: We are in the home stretch! At most we have about 5 weeks to go before baby #2 arrives! Kelley had a check up today and all is looking great. Please pray for a smooth, uncomplicated delivery, and for a healthy new baby ☺
“Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!” ~Psalms 105:1
For the Glory of God,
Erich and Kelley Schindler

A common sight these days 🙂 The little guy is sure growing up fast!
