More than 183,000 people in Taipei gathered over the weekend to hear the Good News proclaimed at the Franklin Graham Festival. And close to 10,000 made a commitment to Jesus Christ!
Now the intense work of Festival follow-up begins. Once the core BGEA staff leaves and the cameras and media go elsewhere, the discipleship of young believers starts in earnest.
It takes the coordinated effort of lots of local congregations to pull off a Festival event and when it’s over, those churches reach out to the new Christians to offer them a place of community and love. Please keep them in your prayers.

To untrained American eyes, Taipei looks and feels like any modern, westernized international hub. However that is based on a cursory glance, having spent less than 24 hours in a new city and a new country. So we went out with our interpreter, Fancie, who explained the sights and sounds, and gave us history and perspective into this fascinating country.
