Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. ~Ephesians 6:23-24
This weekend the entire Taiwan teaching team traveled to Pingtung for a retreat/Thanksgiving. As we will all be teaching during the actual week of that blessed holiday, we decided to gather early and refresh ourselves.
It was fantastic. I hadn’t realized how much I would enjoy seeing everyone and spending time together. We had some seriously amazing food too. I stuffed myself like the Thanksgiving turkey.
But more than that, it was a time of spiritual blessing and refreshment. Being with people who share the same values and language, coming together to worship and thank God for what he’s doing with us and through us; it provided a sense of refocus and intensity to our purpose here, not to mention encouragement in our own towns.
Praise be unto the Lord our God, who is working in strength here! We pray that we can show your love to our friends through our conduct and lifestyle.
