My life has been a deeply rich one as I have learned much from Chinese friends and the Chinese culture, and the faithfulness of God who called me and these couples to serve Him in Taiwan and China
Longwood, FL (Vocus) April 24, 2010
Within the pages of Xulon Press author Faye Pearson’s new title, Taiwan Connections: Fond Memories ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-545-4), are the stories of 30 ordinary men and women from the cities and rural towns of America. They met, fell in love, married, and started families—the American Dream. Then they experienced the call of an extraordinary God and followed where He led to a faraway, undeveloped country filled with breathtaking beauty, exotic smells, strange sights, and an inspiring people. The experiences chronicled in this book occurred during war and peace, victory and defeat, disappointment and excitement, as these couples sought to live out their obedient response to God’s call in a strange land. Readers will come to understand Chinese people and their culture as well as the influence of Christianity in Taiwan, China, and Asia overall.
“I hope the readers will come to love the Chinese and Taiwanese people through the eyes of these missionary couples, to understand that the Chinese and Taiwanese culture is breathtaking and inviting, and to see that these men and women have lived inspiring and fun-filled lives,” the author says.
Appointed as a missionary to Taiwan in 1968, Pearson knows firsthand the joys and struggles, the successes and failures, and the ups and downs of mission work in a cross-cultural setting. “My life has been a deeply rich one as I have learned much from Chinese friends and the Chinese culture, and the faithfulness of God who called me and these couples to serve Him in Taiwan and China,” she says.
