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!
