Today our church zone* went on an all-day outing to a tea farm in Wu Lai, which is located only about 30 minutes south of Taipei city. This was a very important outing, since our goal was to invite our non-believing friends to join, in order for them to rub shoulders with Christians, and get a feeling for what our Bilingual 3E ALPHA course is like.
The Lord really exceeded our highest expectations as over 130 people ended up coming along, only about half of which were church people. As you can see from the picture gallery below, we all had a great time getting to know each other through games (prepared by our English co-workers), barbecuing together, and spending free time walking around the tea farm in conversation with our new friends.
Thanks so much to all of you who pray for our ministry on a regular basis – through events like today’s we can see clearly how the Lord is honoring all of our prayers. It’s great to be working together with all of you on the same team!
