Erich and Kelley’s life in Taiwan
Then, in January of 2018 a dream of ours came true and through partnering with an already established cafe/church, we were able to open Aroma Dong Yuan Cafe. Our desire in having this cafe is that we are able to offer a space in our neighborhood that is unlike other places. A place where people, regardless of their background, feel accepted and loved. A place where they can get good quality food, and ultimately can experience the love of Jesus.
To bring the church into people’s everyday lives through starting a Christian Coffee shop.
In the Fall of 2016, we began a partnership with the Aroma Church, which was started by other Christians several years prior. The church meets for Sunday services inside the Aroma Ximen Christian Coffee Shop.
On January 12, 2018 we opened the 2nd Aroma Coffee Shop in the local neighborhood where we live. Through having this cafe, we are able to provide a space in the community to host events, outreaches, classes, and church events.
