Farewell to a friend of Taiwan - for now!

On Friday (1 June 2018) the Director General of the German Institute in Taipei Mr. Martin Eberts called by the PCT General Assembly Office - the primary purpose of his visit was to say farewell to the PCT as he prepares to depart Taiwan due to the completion of his current posting. In addition Mr. Eberts wanted to convey his deep gratitude to the PCT leaders and congregations for the warm hospitality, fellowship and friendship extended to him throughout his term.

As a Representative of the Federal Republic of Germany he underscored that working with civil societies is an important task for the government in both Germany and Taiwan. To that end, Mr. Eberts noted the interactions and rich exposure opportunities provided him by PCT were invaluable and had helped him garner a deeper understanding of Taiwan’s people and their varied, unique cultures. Each experience had personalized and enhanced his understanding of the difficult and challenging realities of Taiwan in international participation.

The PCT General Secretary, Rev, Lyim Hong-Tiong, reciprocated with words of thanks and presented Mr. Eberts with small mementos while reassuring him there will always be a warm welcome for him here! We thank Martin Eberts for his genuine ecumenical spirit and for constructively exploring various ways of meaningful exchanges between the peoples of Taiwan and Germany. That certainly transcends mere political dealings and is integral to his faith in Christianity. We pray for Martin Eberts and his family health and happiness and God’s guidance as they transit to the next posting; we pray also for the on-going relationship between our respective nations Germany and Taiwan.
