Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend YWAM Taiwan celebrated Thanksgiving. We had a talent show, a grand feast, and a day at the beach together. One thing we were all particularly thankful for was the culmination of a missions initiative that has been going on here for a few years. It's called "The Surge." A few years ago, YWAM Montana contacted YWAM Taipei to ask if they would like to partner with them. Since then, Montana has focused an incredible amount of energy on Taiwan.
