This October I am going to be traveling to Taiwan with my oldest daughter Madison to minister alongside of the Heffner family. The original plan was to bring a larger group but the timing doesn’t seem right for that at the moment. It is our desire as a church to be on the go by sending our people out on mission for Jesus Christ in our community and the rest of the world. Although this isn’t a large group the elders do believe that it would be beneficial to send a couple of people to Taiwan this fall and Lord willing, more people in the years ahead.
We are going to be with the Heffner family. A family that Cornerstone Bible Church has been supporting for a number of years. If you have ever had the opportunity to meet Mark, Laura and their two children, you know that these people genuinely have a heart of a missionary. They love Jesus Christ and are seeking to be used everyday by God to reach the lost with the gospel.
Madi and I will use this 10 day trip to minister in whatever ways would be most beneficial to the Heffner family. Mark has asked that I would be prepared to preach several times while I’m there on the subject of living a victorious life in the midst of difficulties. Madison will also have the opportunity to present to the students there in Taiwan her testimony along with what it’s like to live here in Ohio.
Would you please pray for us as we prepare but also for the Heffner’s as they minister to the Taiwanese people? They have so many opportunities to represent Jesus Christ in a culture that is far from Christian.

Our trip will be from October 26 through November 4. We will keep you updated as we get closer to our departure date. It is our overall desire and mission to be a church that is seeking to glorify Jesus Christ by leading people to know Jesus, grow into His likeness, and go make Him known to others. We are praying that mission would be accomplished through this trip.
