Fulfilling the command of our Lord Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 by going to Taiwan to teach English and share the Gospel with Elementary, Junior High, and High School kids, that "some might be saved."

  Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I hope all is well with you and that God has been richly blessing you. As you may or may not know, 2 years ago I felt God calling me to be equipped for full time ministry so that I could serve him and his kingdom. To this end, I enrolled at the Talbot School of Theology at Biola University, and began my journey to be equipped. Now that I have been in seminary for 2 years, I thank God for his blessings and guidance every day, because not only am I learning more and more each day, but God has also allowed my eyes to be opened to who he is, and what he’s really about. One of the things that God has opened my eyes to is sharing the Gospel with those who do not know him yet. I never thought I would be involved in missions but God in his own providence slowly moved me in that direction, first with Arizona missions 2 years ago, and then Taiwan missions last summer. These were both awesome experiences where I not only saw God working in powerful ways, but in last year’s Taiwan mission, I also developed a burden for Taiwan and the people there, which is why I’m once again going back for missions.

As you may know, the religious climate of Taiwan is quite syncretistic with a lot of Buddhist, Daoist, and Confucianistic influences, resulting in a superstitious mindset in general, and a skeptical attitude toward Christianity. The Christian population in Taiwan has been estimated to be as low as 3%, and according to OMF, Taiwan is considered the only major Chinese society where there has not yet been a significant spiritual breakthrough. My heart breaks for this, and I grew up in Taiwan, so I know this to be true. That is why the people of Taiwan need the Gospel more than ever!

This summer, a team from EFCOC will be traveling to Taiwan from July 18th through August 1st for this very purpose. During these two weeks, we will have two teams visiting different schools and churches in different parts of Taiwan. Most of these locations will be more rural, and located around Taichung, Hualien, Pingtung, or Kaohsiung. We are hoping to share the Gospel not only through English learning and character development camps, but also through praise and worship events, community outreach, and family visitations. I am so excited for this opportunity, and I thank God that I get to go back with a great team consisting of both high school graduates and adults. For many of them, it will be their first mission trip. Knowing this and the spiritual battle ahead, we very much need your prayers and support. Please pray for:


• Unity within the team, and wisdom for the leaders, as we serve our Lord together
• Physical well-being as we adjust to the weather and handle our hectic schedules
• Spiritual protection and empowerment as we wage war against Satan and minister to those we encounter, so that they may be touched by the love of Jesus.

Additionally, the cost of this mission trip is around $2000 per person, which covers travel, food, and lodging. If you would be willing to support me in alleviating any part of this cost, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much, and God bless.

In Christ,
