Two More Days
On Thursday, we spent the first part of our day visiting the Taipei 101. I think this is the world's tallest building. Even if it isn't, it does boast the world's fastest elevator. It took only 43 seconds to go up 84 floors. It was a bit foggy, but we still had a great view of the city. We enjoyed the chance to see some of the sights and ate lunch downtown as well.
Youth Groups and Night Markets
After the Taipei 101, we went back to the Bethany Academy and led a youth group service they have on Thursday evenings. Many of the Bethany students that we met on Tuesday were attending. The students led us in worship and then we had two of our students speak. After our students spoke, we broke up into small groups to further explore some of the ideas that were shared. Once the youth group ended, many of us went down to the Shilin Night Market do some exploring.
Ensuring The The Gospel Is Heard
Friday we spent our morning back at Christ's College. We led their chapel service which is about an hour and a half long. We began with two of our students singing a special song and then we showed a video that showed off our campus. After that I spoke about Multnomah's programs and then we had two student testimonies. Coach Bickley finished off by sharing a short story and the gospel message.
About half of the students at Christ's College are not believers and we wanted to be sure that they had the opportunity to hear the gospel.
The afternoon and evening were spent hanging out all over Taipei with students from Christ's College. Some students went to Danshui, some went to the Shilin Night Market, and I went with a group of students to the Taipei Zoo. It was really great to see the city and to get to know the students from Christ's College better. Besides that, they were great tour guides.
