Welcoming old friends…. and new!

Just welcomed 2 lovely visitors, our old friend Peter Ng, Asia-Pacific Officer for the Episcopal Church, based in New York ~ and a new friend, Ruth-Ann Collins who is Officer for ‘Lifelong Formation’ also at the Episcopal Church in New York, her first time in Taiwan, actually her very first time in Asia YA!…  

Yesterday I accompanied them to St. James’ Church, Taichung ~ always a great pleasure to return to my old home there ha ha ~ I love Taichung!

Off we went by High-Speed Rail which is always so wonderful and relaxing, and such a change from the usual bus…

And of course our good friend, Jerry Liang, who has just published a book of his own short stories in English, many of them stories about his childhood, here he is presenting his book to Peter and Ruth-Ann…. lovely stories, such a delight to read!

Ruth-Ann’s visit came out of a desire from the Diocese of Taiwan for some training programmes and workshops on Christian formation ~ wow, there’s so much available and so many possibilities, and so she’s here for 5 days to learn and see what’s what as a starting point.  Watch this space ~ and please pray for us!
