TWC Ministerial Spouses Retreat
November 06, 2020
With COVID-19 precautions in mind, 27 ministerial spouses gathered from September 13 to 15, 2020, for the Ministerial Spouses Association (MSA) retreat of the Taiwan Conference (TWC). The retreat was organized and led out by Mrs. Kathy (Hui-Chun) Lin, TWC’s MSA coordinator, and her team. The retreat provided opportunities to listen to inspirational speakers, visit with and encourage each other, share meals together, and recharge at the beautiful location of Sanyu Health Center. 

Ms. Huangshumei Ke was the keynote speaker for morning and evening worships. She focused on inspiring topics found in the book of Daniel. Pastor James Wu, TWC Ministerial Association secretary, presented the Sabbath sermon. Ms. Liying Lin, a professional counselor, was also invited to lecture and was available for counseling. Highlights of the weekend included the sharing of heartwarming notes of gratitude and affirmation for each of the spouses, written by their church members; enjoying the Sanyu Health Center’s spa facilities; learning from Ms. Haoyin Zheng how to make products using essential oils; and a field trip to the Xiangshan Visitor Center at Sun Moon Lake.

The group of spouses really appreciated the retreat and many expressed their gratitude in thank you notes of reflection to the MSA team. One of them included the hope that is found for all of us in Philippians 1:6 (KJV), “Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
