Presbyterian Women's Gathering
The 2010 theme for Hualien Aboriginal Campus Ministry (HACM) was ``Growing Together.'' Through the sending-and-going missionary relationship we hope we can grow together in Christ.
In 2009 the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) sent a letter to all the churches and college ministries saying they wanted to promote a project called the ``One-leads-One Doubling Movement.'' The year 2015 will mark the 150th anniversary of the PCT, by which time the church would like to see a boost in membership from 200,000 to 300,000. So at the beginning of 2010, we told the student officers that we would join the movement and that we would work hard together to double our membership to 50 before 2015.
During the summer, we renovated the worship place in our mission center so that it would provide more seats. At the beginning of the fall 2010 semester, we started to use it. What a surprise we had! With God's grace, we have already met the goal we set to reach 50 students at our Sunday worship service this year. On the first Sunday 52 students attended, and on the following Sunday there were 56 students. During the Welcoming New Students Service, we had about 120 students. Because we were cramped for space, we removed all the chairs and sat on the floor for the service.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and support. We are willing to obey and serve the Lord, Jesus Christ.
