Dear Rev. Sek long Lim,
We are in receipt of a check in the amount of$200 from the Taiwanese
Christian Church Council of North America. We are deeply grateful for the
annual gift from Taiwanese Christians of North America whom we have grown
to love. And this year (2011) we note that the gift has doubled.
We hope and trust that Taiwan, with God's help, will be able to maintain its
independence and, over time, become a sovereign state. We will pray for Dr. Tsai
as presidential candidate in the coming election.
We have fond memories of our experience at Tunghai University and
Tainan Theological College. We look forward with you to the 150th anniversary
celebration of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan plus the challenge of doubling
I am a retired member of the Presbytery of East Tennessee. I enjoy my
retirement years because it gives me a chance to write. I have written and
published six books since I retired in 1991, despite the handicaps of Parkinson's
Disease. May the Spirit of God that was in Jesus the Christ be with you and in
you and with the generous members of the Council throughout the coming year.
Doug and Bettie Elwood
