Sunday's Highlights

Sunday Morning started out quickly. We got to the Philpino church just as service started. They began with a mild two worship songs then "Dao gao" prayer. Then we began worship with the dance and worship team (see pictures). they then greeted everyone at the church (grandpa says he got more handshakes here then a long time (10 years). What a precious people! The Philippino people are very emotional. Then came the sermon (Waiting upon the Lord) - There was a good response to the altar call with a few of the Philippino down under the power of God. We sensed God's presence throughout the service. We then had a great lunch with the missionary pastor from the Philippines. Here is a interesting note she told me. All of the church works in the factories and the factories control their daily lives. They have to get permission to go off company grounds - If they leave without it they will be deported immediately. They also have no say in their work place - So they often work 6 to 7 days a week 10-12 hour shifts. Pray for these people they seem to be treated like slave labor. Pray that God will allow the people to attend the Bible Studies and Church - That their bosses would allow them the time to go to these events.

We then went back to Agape ICA to have a service there. What a time it was. The difference between their daughter church (Chosen Ones where we preached in the morning) was striking. The Phillipinos worship loudly and emotionally where Agape was a little more tame. Though both services were extremely Pentecostal. Shawna had come up from Kaohsiung and celebrated services with us and it was a good time for all. After church we jumped the High Speed rail back to Taichung where we are staying. Thanks to all who have been praying and God Bless from Taiwan. I will be downloading some pictures from this beautiful country.
