Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Grace and peace to you all!
We are all called by Jesus to the Great Commission of Acts 1:8. What a blessing it is to see
God at work reaching out to people everywhere on Earth through His ministries at Cincinnati
In response to His call, I decided to participate on a mission team that will travel to Taiwan to
fulfill His mission for us there. This is the first time in my life that I was called by our Lord to be a
missionary. I am pleased to share with you a trip that will be a life changing experience for me
and hopefully the people I come in contact with.
From July 11 to 17, I will be joining the SEND international for a short term mission (STM) trip to
Tianwei, a small town with about 30,000 populations in Changhua County, Taiwan. The SEND
international is an interdenominational evangelical mission organization that focuses on church
planting among the unreached people in areas of Asia, Eurasia, Europe and North America.
We will be working with local churches and missionaries from SEND International to run a 5-day
"English camp" to reach out to students and families of Tianwei Junior High, the highest
educational institute of Tianwei township. We are hoping that during and after the camp the
missionaries will be able to build relationships with the community of Tianwei and lay the first
stone for a church plant in the near future.
I'm excited about the opportunity and experience that lie ahead of us. As we pray for God’s
blessing on this upcoming STM trip, I invite you to become a part of this mission. There are
many ways in which you can participate. You can participate in at least two major ones. First
and most importantly, you can pray. Prayer is the single most important element for the success
of any mission trip. Therefore, I ask that you pray for this STM to accomplish what God wants to
happen (i.e. for lives to be drawn to Him) and, especially, I ask that you be a daily personal
prayer partner for me and our team during the week of our mission. If you would like to be our
prayer partner and receive our updates, please click to subscribe.
Another important means for you to become part of this mission is to participate financially. In
addition to the prayers of the mission team members, substantial financial support will be
needed to accomplish the work God has planned. We are raising support as a team, and I invite
you to give generously to help and make this mission trip possible and fruitful. If you are
touched by God and would like to partner financially with God's ministry through this mission,
please write a check to Cincinnati Chinese Church, indicating for “Taiwan STM 2015”.
Our team will be commissioned during 10:45 and 12:15 worship services on Sunday, July xx, at
Mason. Your presence as a witness will be a great encouragement to the team and a living
testimony of God’s love and goodness.
Thank you for your support of this exciting and important mission.
Yours in the love of Jesus,
