We finished the 2017 CE Camp today. A total of 72 participants, of which, 54 were students. This was a great opportunity to establish relationships for the coming year. Steve Calmes and I will start several campus ESL outreaches this year on the NTCUST campus.
Saturday 07/01, the camp began in Taipei at three rented Hostels. We divided the students into men and women facilities. The first night was to make sure all our overseas visitors along with the students made it to town.
Sunday morning, we visited Pastor Hong’s Shuang He Baptist church for a morning service and a meal.
Doug Brown spoke and many people shared their testimonies.
Pastor Hong made us feel very comfortable along with the church members.
Sunday afternoon, we took two buses to the East coast where we spent the night in Hualien in two hotels. That night many of us went to the Aboriginal night market,
where we ate some very interesting things.
The next morning, Monday, we headed South by bus to a major white-water river, where we floated for five hours. After the float, we returned to Taipei.
Tuesday, we began our four day tour of Taipei.
The student lead us in groups, all we had to do is keep up. This lasted four days and it included visiting major hot spots in the Taipei area. Each group went to different places each day.
We really never knew what we would see on any given day.
Our mode of transportation most of the time was by Metro Rail Transportation.
Friday, we all went to the National Palace Museum.
It was a fun time, made a lot of new friends, but most importantly, had the opportunity to share our lives with non-believers.
Pray for the students as they recount their trip over the Summer and reconnect with the visiting Americans. Pray for more contact this year, as we reach out through ESL activities on Campus.
I can not begin to thank those visiting Americans, without them, it would not have been possible. Also, a special thanks to Wendy, who coordinated everything.
