I haven’t really been paying attention much, but watching swimming and gymnastics takes me a lot of energy to not tear up when I see these athletes do their best at what they love. All of them have trained so hard to get to where they are today and for them to be performing in front of the whole world is a dream, how amazing.
I had started a post about leaving Taiwan but I didn’t know how to put it in a fancy way.
So I’m just going to say: I don’t want to leave. I hate leaving early. I didn’t get a good look at each child surrounding me telling me not to leave. I didn’t even get to bid my team a proper farewell. There’s just one more week and I wanted to see it to the end.
But, God is good. God is faithful. My job here is done for now, and I did it (hopefully) to the best of my ability. And I really do hope it is in God’s sovereign plan to bring me back to see these beautiful faces in this beautiful country again.
I already miss everyone and I’m not even at the airport yet. Of course I am glad to be coming home!! Only because I foresee an Arizona road trip in the very very near future..
Also keep praying for my team! They still have lots of house visitations to do and their last week next week will be the toughest!
and a big mob of Taiwanese SONE meetup/flashmob at the XiMen square.. watched these old guys in KFC’s second floor admire them from above. lul
The Gospel truly is such a beautiful thing.
I think I’ve met some of my favorite people in the world in my lifetime on this STM :) PTL
I feel like half my newsfeed is currently in Taiwan.
