Funding + Language School

If you’ve been following our fundraising over the past few months you’ll know that we’ve seen God working in many of you, spurring you to give towards the ministry we’re a part of in Taiwan. We’re currently 65% funded, praise the Lord. Brittany has applied to several part time teaching jobs to supplement our support, but one thing going forward that we’re looking for help in is our language learning.

While Brittany was able to attend the Mandarin Training Center at a local university, Justin has not had the chance to study the language formally. We believe that speaking Mandarin fluently is the next step in diving deeper and creating a stronger Christ centered community around the Aroma cafes. There is so much we desire to do here with the locals and this new year we are looking forward to that deeper dive, creating new [Kingdom] culture, and to the many things God has in store. We’re also excited because being more fluent in Mandarin allows us to spread the Aroma further throughout the country in cities where English is much less prevalent.

If you’ve been following our journey and want to get involved, now is a great time. For three months of intensive language courses (15 hours a week of class time) we’ll need to pay $1,200USD up front. We’d love for Justin to be able to attend these courses for at least nine months, or rather, three semesters. That means for those three semesters the total amount would be $3,600USD.

Would you consider giving a one-time gift towards this?
Please, feel free to start a conversation by emailing us or if you’d rather just give, here’s a link for that as well.

Blessings and peace!
The Siemens
