Once in awhile something comes along and changes your whole life. That “thing” for me and Dave was our trip to Taiwan last summer.
My parents have lived there for the last 10 years so I’ve been lucky enough to visit many times. However, this was Dave’s first trip.
We had a wonderful time and saw all the beautiful things that Taiwan has to offer.
I even went go-carting for the first time…it was terrifying!
But God had us there for a bigger reason than just to have a good time.
He was working on our hearts.
As soon as we got back to Chicago, Dave was a changed man. He kept talking about how much he felt a strong pull to go back to Taiwan…to live and to serve.
I was definitely not feeling the same way, and for several months Dave had to pray about this alone.
Slowly but surely God was working in my heart and fast forward to January…I was ready to go too!
We both feel called to follow the words of Christ and to go and bring His light to a very dark place.
We both feel that there are so many more important things in this world that just following the “American Dream.”
We just want to empty ourselves so that we can be filled with God.
We want to cut loose the things that have us tied down so we can be free to serve Him in anyway He calls us to.
Right now we feel that He has called us to Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and we intend to stay there until He calls us to leave.
There are so many more things to share, but I’ll end this post for now.
Please keep us in our prayers during this exciting time of transition! I can’t wait to share more details soon.
Kaohsiung, Taiwan—our home to be!
