Jing Hwa!

Some of you who read this live in Taiwan, so an "update" on Jing Hwa may not be really interesting to you. However, if you think that I have left anything out, please feel free to post it in the comments section! For the rest of you who might be wondering if Jing Hwa is still wondering the Earth, I am happy to say that she is. Here's a picture to prove it.
She is the official translator in our church. That basically means that she is translating for someone during every service. She is still tons of fun and her English still has a southern accent! We haven't found her a husband yet, but if you know a great guy that is willing to move to Taiwan (*ahem* Please note that we aren't willing to let her move away) then send him over to this blog for a little look see. She is always joking that she needs to give me a picture of herself for my house so that when I have the English Home Meeting I can introduce her to any good guys. Well, Jing Hwa, This is better! I am introducing you to the world!
The other night we all went out to a little restaurant beside the ocean. We drank Chinese tea and ordered dinner and drank more Chinese tea. Before we knew it, we had been there for over 4 hours! Thankfully, it was a very laid back place where customers are expected to linger. She really is a wonderful blessing to our church and to me personally. To all of you who have said hello, I have passed those thoughts along to her.

Ya! How kind of 靜華! She always translates English into Chinese everytime when some foreign missioners come to KUPC to speech! I also hope she can translate for KUPC forever!

Oh, my, Tiffany, you do not know how much good you have done my heart to post this picture of my friend! We think of her often!
And miss her "honkin' big much". We recently had our house phone disconnected (last fall I think) and New Years day I said, OH NO! 靜華 always calls us on New Years! Now she can't! Please tell her the Hesters STILL love her and we still have the picture she gave us at her graduation. We want to see her sooooooooooooo much.

On another note, I sent a message to your father-in-law, Brother Bracken, through his book's website, but I have heard nothing back from him. I was telling him how much I enjoyed the book but mostly I had a question. What book (in Mandrian) could we get that explained Pentecost and Truth? We have been talking to a young chinese woman in a restraunt we go to and witnessing to her. But she knows nothing of "God" and says she believes in the "Science". She has lost a newborn due to some thing hereditary with it's heart and is heart broken and wants a daughter. We want to witness to her but are at a loss as to how to explain the Gospel! HElp!

Love you all! Sandra Hester
