Hites to Taiwan January Newsletter

Hites to Taiwan

The Hite family will be joining Taiwan Sunshine, a ministry providing hope and encouragement for families with children who have special needs through sports, education and community development.  Preston will serve as Taiwan Sunshine’s Director of Operations.  Among other things, this will involve leading community development projects such as a new farm and adventure camp that will be staffed largely by young adults with special needs.

35% towards our fundraising goal

We are currently working hard to raise our support.  We need your help.  We need to spread the word to everyone about our work.  We would love for you to host a dessert/coffee gathering at your house for us to share about our ministry.  Also, if you plan to give, it would be very beneficial for us if you go ahead and signup through RCE to give.  Your first draft can be deferred until June, but we need an idea of how we are doing with our fundraising. Specific information on giving can be found at the bottom of this post.

Moving Day is set, June 12.
As you can imagine moving to another country has multiple moving preparation days.  We would love your help with any of these days.
Jan 27: packing & kitchen working day
Feb 24: moving everything going to Taiwan out of our house and to Christian Service Mission to prepare for container shipment to Taiwan.
Lucy is preparing to come with us.  Wow, we had no idea how much was involved in moving a dog.  Thirty-three pages of forms, blood testing in Kansas, USDA exit paperwork, etc.  We are glad she will still be able to be with our family.
We had a wonderful visit with the Mauer family, who started Taiwan Sunshine, for a few days in early January.  They are in the United States for a few months.  We are looking forward to joining them in June!
