[Kelley writing] One of my favorite parts of the week is Sunday morning, particularly the time of singing and worship at our church. For those of you that may not know, our church is quite large and is located directly across the street from the largest, and most renowed, univeristy in all of Taiwan- the National Taiwan Univeristy. Truth Church was founded in the 1950’s by American missionaries and has continued to grow ever since. Worshipping together with brothers and sisters from another culture is a most touching experience! I feel like it’s a true picture of what Heaven will be like. One reason I love singing and worshipping together is because of how genuinely the Taiwanese Christians worship the Lord. Again, I have never seen anything like it. Many have come from Buddhist backgrounds and have sacrificed relationships, family support, social standing etc… in becoming a believer, so you know that the words they sing are direct prayers and praise to God- not a show.
The Lord has used our church and our fellow brothers and sisters to encourage me, challenge me, and grow me in ways I previously never was. What a joy to be a part of God’s Kingdom work in Taiwan!
Watch the video below for a taste of what worship looks like at Truth Church. The song “I am Strengthened in Him” is one of my very favorites and such a good reminder that all of our hope lies in Jesus Christ. We are not of this world- we belong to the King! Amen!
