Our last full day in Taiwan. We took advantage of the metro transit (we’re getting pretty good at it)and venture out to the underground shopping mall. Our mission was to eat at the famous Ding Tie Fung restaurant in the Maokong Gondola.
We couldn’t think of a more prefect way to end our trip, than with the best sunset ever! The bright red sunset liked the Chinese salty egg yoke.
In extreme heat, we walked from our Airbnb to the Chang Kai Shek Memorial. It took us more than 30 minutes, because we got lost on the way, but it was well worth it.
We were very proud of ourselves for being able to navigate the transit system. We were able to take the metro train back to our Airbnb and to the Shilin night market.
We toured Sun Moon Lake today before heading up to Taipei. Our driver picked us up promptly at 9am with his fancy 9 passenger bus. It was the most comfortable ride we have had so far.
In order to fully appreciate the beautiful lake, we took a boat ride across the vast lake. It was lots of fun.
We end the trip with a bike ride around part of the lake.
Today was our first real day by ourselves. We took a 1 hour and 15 minute train ride from Chaiyi to Taichung. The air conditioned train cars were a great escape from the heat.
We found a delicious Korean restaurant for lunch.
Then off to the mall! It was so big and so fancy.
We ended our day with some ice cream from a popular ice cream shop.
Fun At The Pool
It has nearly been two weeks of sharing and teaching the gospel in Taiwan. After these last few days we were tired, exhausted, and in need of a break. Fortunately, Pastor James was kind enough to drive us to a water park for a much needed fun and relaxing time. We enjoyed ourselves by swimming in the wave pools, hot tubs, jacuzzi, slides, and by playing volleyball. We are so grateful to have such compassionate, understanding, and generous hosts at The Grace Place.
After three days of collaborating with the Arthur’s STM team, we feel more comfortable with the other team’s teaching method, and working with them overall. We find so much excitement while teaching and playing with the kids.
The projects today at the school were focused on sharing Jesus’s life story, from birth to death. Even though we were assigned to assist the other team during craft projects, we were each given the opportunity to share about Jesus and teach a craft project. For the sake of our health, we took different break times during the day.
We ask everyone to please pray that we will have enough energy every day, and continue to focus on our goal of sharing the gospel. Thank you for your previous prayers because we have continuously been able to see our impact on the people around us and see God work everyday in our lives.
