Dear Mr Lim ,
I am writing very late to thank you and the Taiwanese Christian Church Council in North America for your very generous gift of a cheque which arrived at the end of last year. It arrived while I was in the process of moving house and changing ministries to a new church. I think the letter must have been addressed to my new home and therefore it took time for it to find me. I have paid the cheque into my bank only in the past few days, which explains the long delay.
My wife and I are former missionaries in Taiwan. I served in Tainan Theological College from 1979-1986, as Head of its Church Music Department. This was during the period before Loh I-Tō bόk-su returned from the Philippines. My family are deeply grateful for our years in Taiwan and it has been good to keep in touch with former students and colleagues when possible.
Your gift to us at Christmas represents the warmth and care which we experienced abundantly from friends all the time we lived in Taiwan, and since our return to the U.K.
I recently moved from being Deputy General Secretary of the United Reformed Church (U.K.) back into local ministry. I decided that I wanted to spend the last 5 years of ministry in a local situation once again, and so am now minister of three churches in north London.
Please send our greetings and thanks to members of the Committee.
Pêng-An Yours sincerely
The Rev. Ray Adams (An Lé-bûn)
