Tim was invited by our contact in China to meet those they know in Taiwan. This is already turning into a wonderful encounter with local pastors and believers. Here is a brief account of his first day:
“My first evening in Taipei was one of the most exciting times I have ever experienced. They had an extended family gather to meet me; about 40 around a large table. It was like a king had come; King Jesus' and His servant. In my quiet time this morning, I was reading about Abraham's slave or servant being sent to get Rebekah for Isaac (Genesis 24). His focus and desire was always on his master's God.
Our host couple are involved in the Gideons work, handing out Bibles and witnessing to everything that moves. I met with their pastor who knew more about our material than I did since he had been given the electronic copy of God’s Plan for His Disciples before I came. He is a Dallas Theological Seminary graduate, but realizes the old traditional way of church and missions is not getting the task done.
At our feast, they put me beside their 95-year old grandfather and great grandfather. They are all so committed to the Lord! It is a truly awesome time. They have many Christians and pastors they want me to meet during my stay. If we were in mainland China, we would already be in jail, but we are not, even with China right next door. They are all the more energized to witness about Jesus Christ everywhere as well as being appreciative of their freedom. Please pray that many here will be equipped, mobilized and challenged to take the Gospel to those who have never heard, here in Taiwan, China and the world!” Tim
