Friends...please prepare for take off.

Yes, we're still alive. One year later....where has the time gone. You're all probably wondering what happened to us. Well, we've had our ups and downs...literally.

We've stepped over boundaries from Myanmar to Vietnam to the Philippines to Malaysia to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau onwards to mainland China. First Deaf baptized. Need great work in another country and so much more.
Where do we begin?

We're now writing from Hong Kong. We've left our beautiful temporary home of Krabi, Thailand to look for work. Yes, that's where China falls in. We'll be there for 6 months. On the way to Hong Kong, we stopped over to Taiwan for the District Convention in English and meet up with an old friend...Omar. It was great to see all the brothers and sisters that have answered the call to serve where the need is great and learn the Chinese language so fast. Although there is a growth in the English and Chinese field, they had just made an announcement for classes for Taiwanese Sign Language. Also, that very week we were there, they had started a Vietnamese and Indonesian group. There is also one indigenous language that is translated at the Taiwanese Bethel for the benefit of a few ol' timers in Taiwan. What a loving provision.

Here's some of Taiwan for you...
