Trusting in His Goodness

by Pastor Calvin

          It’s funny how life has a way of taking us back to where we began.  Being back to the place where I spent many of my earlier years and younger adult life, I’m reminded of how I used to be.  Lately, I also find myself thinking about the lyrics of […]

Season of Grace

by Pastor Calvin

              Our children’s missionary school in southern Taiwan was surrounded by pineapple fields.  Due to its warm climate, pineapples are grown & harvested all year.  Still during summer months, they are especially sweet & inexpensive.  Pineapples are my favorite fruit in Taiwan not only because of its sweetness, but […]

“Who’s Driving?”

by Pastor Calvin

              What we desire is control… control over our life, our situation, our future & even over people.  One lesson we learned time and time again in Taiwan is that we have no control.  We only think we do.  But the beauty of this or shall I call it […]

The Final Letter

by Pastor Calvin

              This will be our last blog from Taiwan before going back to the U.S. for home assignment.  We are overwhelmed with gratitude toward everyone who has been supporting our missions & praying for our family.  We couldn’t have come to this point of our missional journey without you.  […]

Preparing to Go Home

by Pastor Calvin

            The month of May has been full of activities.  From May 1st to 11th, I had to attend OMF International’s Pre-Home Assignment Workshop in Hengchun to better prepare for our 1 year home assignment in the U.S. because one of the main responsibilities we have is to mobilize God’s […]

Blessings in Paradox

by Pastor Calvin

              I might’ve mentioned this before, but serving the Lord is quite paradoxical.  It appears as though you are losing everything that gives you worth, and yet you find yourself enjoying the precious things that make your life worth living.  Although the future seems uncertain, you discover that your […]

Pursuit of Obedience

by Pastor Calvin

One important lesson that the Lord has been teaching me is not to think too much about tomorrow.  Instead we are to fully trust God & His promises each day.  We are to embrace & enjoy His blessing each day, in whatever form they may come.  Ultimately, we are to strive to honor God with […]

Christ in Us

by Pastor Calvin

              Jeanette & I have been leading a Bible study with college students in Tandi since last November.  This modest group of 3 students has been a tremendous encouragement because it is so clear to us that these young people will be used by God to love, serve & […]

Home Assignment

by Pastor Calvin

            This summer we will be heading back to the U.S. for our 1st home assignment.  OMF missionaries usually stay on the field for about 4 years followed by 1 year home assignment.  During our home assignment period, we will visit & report to our partners who have been supporting […]

Updates from January

by Pastor Calvin

            Doing missions is full of contrasts.  For example, progress at times is quite slow, and yet God continues to surprise us and bring joy & excitement to our missional journey.  Sometimes I feel quite lonely & alone, but at the same time never been more closer to our Lord […]
