鄉福一行順利完成，由mission impossible to mission complete。我們體會了神的同在。祂一步步地帶領，祂聆聽鄉福同工們的禱告，向我們此美弟兄姊妹們呼召，運用祂賜下的語言能力，進行台灣鬆土撒種的事工。收成之日可能遠至30年後，但在這塊被綑綁的土地上，卻可清晰的看到了那線光亮。我們要讚美我們的 神，也要紀念這群在第一線戰場上的忠心僕人們，他們的需要我們如何去配合與支持？ACCCN已踏出成功的第一步，還要繼續，不停地踏，願 神帶領與祝福。
I have always felt an obligation to the people of Taiwan. Since I have the ability to speak Chinese, I feel that I should use my gift to communicate with the people and tell them about Christ. Village Gospel Mission allowed me to combine my love for working with children with my sense of duty. The Village Gospel Mission trip to Taiwan this summer deeply impacted my life. Without realizing it, my three weeks in Taiwan had become a memory of a lifetime. It wasn’t that the towns Da Cun or Dong Shih were unique or even special. It was the people that I met. It was the friends I made, and the fellowship with the college students we created. When we started preparing for this mission trip, being the slightly neurotic girl that I am, I thought that it would be an impossible task to accomplish. We arrived in Da Cun more than slightly clueless as to what exactly we were supposed to do. Yet, what we lacked, our Taiwan counterpart from Chung Shin University made up for. This trip taught me that I did not need to manage everything, but that I should have faith.
During the two weeks, I faced more frustration than I anticipated. First off, I NEVER expected to tear a ligament and be stuck on crutches for the whole trip. My physical disability became one of the hardest things I dealt with. My stress came not only from the mental tiredness from working from morning until evening, but also physical exhaustion at the end of the day. I never had to deal with four flights of stairs with crutches before, or asking people to help me with even the simplest thing like going upstairs to help me get something I had forgotten. Also, I felt awkward with my small group, since Alice and Ashburn (my fellow counselors) were really good friends.
However, with time, Alice and Ashburn became friends with me as well. When I went to the hospital, both Alice and Ashburn accompanied me! Moreover, my impediment unexpectedly created a blessing. Since I couldn’t run around at play with the kids, I was able to use that time to create power points that we didn’t realize that we needed to make. One of my strongest memories was when one day after school was out; all the counselors spontaneously came over and prayed over me as a group. It was then that I realized that even though I was struggling, I wasn’t alone because everyone was there to help me. There is so much more that I want to share, but the space I have is limited. The people from Chung Shin University became my friends. The children I worked with were so excited to be there. They were there even when a typhoon was coming, and they waited outside half an hour before class started every morning. The children I taught became my friends as well. God blessed me. I pray that God blesses you.
