Gospel Hope For Fearful Souls

Vicar Changlong Chen found hope in the Gospel, and he wants to share it with others in Taiwan.

The Qianjia preaching station of the China Evangelical Lutheran Church, a partner church of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), sits in the middle of an aboriginal community in Hsinchu, Taiwan. In the shadow of glittering towers that house a quickly growing technology district, this aboriginal community appears earthy. Gardens weave between the homes, and livestock graze around the buildings. These people could afford to live elsewhere, but they prefer to live off the earth that has sustained them for many years. . .
