2020 I Love Taiwan (ILT) Mission Camp: Seeking(Chhiâu-chhoē)

Dear Ecumenical Brothers and Sisters,

Warm greetings from the Youth Ministry Committee of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT)! May the love and grace of God in Trinity be with you. With this invitation, we cordially invite you to attend the2020 I Love Taiwan (ILT) Mission Camp: Chhiâu-chhoē: Seeking.

As our world combats with the recent outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), theILT Mission Campis inevitably affected by the situation. In this moment of global crisis, there has been a strong urge in us to seek the Lord and His will, an anxious desire to follow him, to recuperate and to find our way in Him.Chhiâu-chhoē: Seeking, the main theme of our2020 ILT Mission Camp, reflects this desire of ours.

Human beings seek the will of God, and He calls them to walk with Him. He welcomes them to seek Him and to come to Him with boldness. In Exodus, the Lord spoke to the Israelites through Moses in the wilderness.“From there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find him if you search after him with all your heart and soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)

Indeed, we are bound to seek Him, the fountains of salvation. He is the river of flowing water that pours into our work, words, actions, sense, and emotions. The value of life lies not in what we have achieved, but in how the Lord has worked through us and with us.

Thus, we invite you to join the2020 ILT Mission Campto embark on this journey of seeking. Through serving each other and the local churches, we also seek the chance to know ourselves, to learn about Taiwan and the world, to love, and to be humble. By rising fearlessly to challenges, we may establish firm relationship with the Lord as the rivers of living water flow ceaselessly in us.

“From there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find him if you search after him with all your heart and soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)

“And the God of the hope shall fill you with all joy and peace in the believing, for your abounding in the hope in power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

May the Lord strengthens those who follow him,

The Youth Ministry Committee
The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, PCT
Chairperson of Committee Ms.Lai, Yin-Ting  Program Secretary Rev.Li, Sin-Jin
