Our team of eleven was rather apprehensive when we heard we had been assigned to teach English in this remote community in Kaohsiung county. More disconcerting was the uncertain living conditions. We were all to sleep on the church benches, and there was no way to shower or cook food. It would be a test of faith.
We arrived at the church in the late afternoon on Sunday, July 4th. Completely forgetting America”s independence day, we hurried to ascertain our exact living conditions. The local church leaders directed us to a guest house ten minutes away. We opened the door on a new 3-story house, completely furnished with beds, tables, chairs, a refrigerator, and even a Yamaha piano! There was no AC, but fans and cold showers would keep us cool. How could we have asked for or even imagined such living conditions? It was all by the grace of God.
