A Tremendous Taiwan Trip!

Ever been to Taiwan when the whole nation is celebrating Chinese New  Year?

It's noisy...busy...tasty...interesting...colorful...crowded...and I got to do it recently!

Part of my ministry with One Mission Society (OMS) is to travel to the nations where we have ministry teams and/or partners to serve and equip them.  An invitation to do team building and encouraging ministry to our OMS Taiwan team during their annual retreat turned out to be a delight--in  more ways than one--and an adventure--also in more ways than one!

Along with serving a team of missionaries who come from five home countries learn how they can better fit and flourish personally and as teams, I got to experience a lot of Taiwan culture...which is especially interesting during their week of Chinese New Year!

The OMS team time was great.  I got feedback about our team building time with words like, "enlightening, eye-opening, helpful, encouraging..."  That makes long hours of travel and adjusting to a 13 time zone difference worthwhile!

There's a lot more to the story, which includes a travel delay that led to finding our new doggie, a suitcase that came late but right on time...and more!  You can read my journal of the trip to read the fuller version and see more pictures by clicking here: Taiwan Journal 2-16.

Because of the prayer and financial partnership of our Roehl support team, we can do this kind of ministry.  Thanks to all who do!  

And, from Taiwan...Happy New Year!
