Greetings from Taiwan! While many of you on the East Coast are surrounded by snow, we here in Taipei are surrounded by rain and have been for what seems like months (in reality it has only been a couple weeks). Since we rely on public transportation and our scooter to get around, in order to not get soaked, we’ve been stuck indoors more than we like the past couple of weeks. But, thankfully the forecast has some sun in the coming few days, so we look forward to getting out and soaking it up!
Prayer and Praise
- Adoption Interview. Our first interview with the adoption agency went very well! Thank you to all who were praying and wrote to us about it. The agency will have their monthly meeting at the end of March where they will discuss our case and then let us know if we have been officially accepted into their program. We are praying for good news!
- Ministry. Kelley continues to enjoy co-leading a group for local moms every week. Just this week a grandma that attends occasionally with her granddaughter made a profession of faith! Kelley also serves at the same center another morning each week co-leading an outreach for neighborhood kids, which she is really enjoying. Erich keeps busy meeting with local guys for discipleship and doing a variety of administration work for The Aroma church/coffee shop. In a few weeks he will have the opportunity again to go into a local school to share the Easter story.
- Family Health. Overall, Kelley has healed well from her surgery but continues to deal with some lingering nausea and pain. Please pray for complete healing. Max’s cough has improved (with the help of regular nightly medication) and we are thankful he’s been able to get better sleep the past few weeks.
Thanks to each of you for staying connected with us and keeping us in your prayers! It’s a privilege to serve the Lord together with you!
For the Glory of God,
Erich, Kelley, Max, and Sam
