Schindler Update 2017_09_16

Dear Friends, 

Greetings from Taiwan! 
We have some very exciting news to share! After 2 years of praying, fundraising, working out many legal issues, getting barista trained, and team-building, we have finally found the location for our Gospel Coffee Shop! God has gone above what we could have even asked for, as the landlady is a local believer and is giving us 2 months free of rent for the remodeling. To God be the Glory, great things He has done!

Prayer and Praise

    • Coffee Shop. If all goes as planned, our upcoming timeline is as follows:
      Sept 20 – sign a 5-year rental contract 
      Sept 20-30 – have local interior designers bid on the design contract, and choose one 
      Oct / Nov – remodel & train our staff 
      Dec 1 – Open our doors! 

    • Hope Center. Kelley continues to serve at the mission center in our neighborhood twice a week. Tuesday mornings she co-leads an outreach for moms / kids, and Saturday mornings she helps to lead an outreach for local children. Please pray for unity among the co-workers, wisdom in sharing Jesus’s love with the people that come through the doors, and for open hearts from the Taiwanese to receive His love.

    • Adoption. We are making good progress towards the adoption of a little Taiwanese girl. We are currently finishing up some mandatory training courses, and will be visited by our social worker within the next 2 weeks to complete the home study. Please keep praying for God’s leading in this adoption journey.


  • Ephesians 3:20 – “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

For the Glory of God,
Erich, Kelley, Max, and Sam
