On October 16, our church family was blessed with a visit from Garrett and Jessica Boyer, one of the missionary families we support as a church body. Garrett and Jessica and their two cute children are home on furlough from their mission ministry with YWAM in Taiwan.
Among the prayer requests – and reports of ministries taking place – were a desire to meet goals of 500 discipled, 50 church contacts, and 50 sent out into ministry in neighboring countries. Teams are being dispatched to Yilan, Zhanghua, and Taidong within Taiwan, as well.
The Titus Project is a Bible school that teaches about the Bible and sends students into the communities for a three-month “practicum.”
What is fondly referred to as the “Gangster Ministry” is a program that works with at-risk youth, many of whom have little or no family support. We were especially excited to hear that a young man named Wei Wei, whom we have been keeping in prayer for some time, will be attending college! Continue to keep him in your prayers that he will stay on the straight path.
The Coffee Bar ministry, which is reminiscent of the very first American “mission” effort in San Francisco – a coffee house – brings people in from the streets to learn English and to provide opportunities to talk about Jesus Christ as the answer to life’s problems.
Garrett and Jessica believe that God is calling them into ministry with couples and families, and the training they need with YWAM is in New Zealand beginning in January. Financial support for this next step is needed, as well as additional monthly support funding. Their goal following the family ministry training is to set up a new ministry in Taiwan.
