Schindler Update 2016_10_18

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Greetings from Taipei! It’s hard to believe we are nearing the end of October already! Today the high in Taipei City is 32C, or 90F, so it definitely doesn’t feel like Fall around here yet. We’ve been encouraged throughout the past month in many ways; local friends coming to church, opportunities for discipleship, progress with the coffee shop, etc. Praise God for His daily goodness and grace! 


Prayer & Praise

  • Encouraging visit from our mission leaders. From September 30th – October 4th two leaders from our US mission agency (Shepherd’s Staff Mission Facilitators) visited us, along with another family serving with SSMF in Taipei County. Their visit was very encouraging, and we are thankful for the time they spent with us, ministry advice they gave, and for all the goodies they brought us from ‘home’! 
  • Church and Discipleship. Sunday evening both Miss Lin and Joe (two friends many have been praying for) were both at church. They each are making steps in knowing Jesus more. Pray for Joe as Erich disciples him, and for Miss Lin’s heart to keep being opened and softened towards trusting Jesus. The decision for our church plant to partner with another local church has been a huge blessing. We are so grateful for how God has led us. 


  • New apartment. We are looking to move into a slightly bigger apartment by the end of the year. Our current apartment is just about 700 sq. feet, and having a bit more space would be great! Until now, we haven’t been able to find any that are in decent condition (the apartments in this area of the city can be quite old and run down), but we are trusting that God has the perfect place for our family. Please join us in prayer that a place will open up soon! 


Thank you for all your support and prayers! We couldn’t do what we do without you!

For the Glory of God,

Erich, Kelley, Max, and Sam Schindler
