AT THE CLOSE OF THE 8TH MONTH

Dear friends, kindly join us to celebrate the conclusion of the 9th month in this new mission of Taiwan. All we can say is that the Lord has been good to us, showering us with grace upon grace. It has not been a bed of roses for us; however, we see the Lord’s hand in our day-to-day life.
As has been our tradition to write a rather detailed article at the end of every month; this time, instead, I would like to make a flashback on our little journey covered so far. I’ll post a few photos to help illustrate the most significant moments of our journey right from the time we first met in Italy up to date. Pray with us that the Lord may continue blessing this new mission.

We thank the Lord for His goodness. We also thank the Taiwan society for being so kind in receiving and accepting us just the way we are.
