How to Use WEI

 

Matt 28:18-20

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
NIV

John 20:10-16

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11 but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?"

"They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?"

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him."

16 Jesus said to her, "Mary."

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher).
NIV

Enoch and Jeannine Thweatt schedule to return to Taiwan for another WEI campaign periodically. In the past, six teachers have signed including veteran teachers Sarah Coggins from Alabama and Larry Raper of Cookeville, Tennessee. New teachers include Rodney and Carole English of Nashville. Rodney is a retired salesman and serves as a substitute teacher for Metro schools. Carole taught in the education school, Peabody, and is now retired from Metro Public Schools as an elementary school principal. Praise God for such a talented group of teachers.

Dick Ady and the Thweatt's were missionaries together in Taiwan way back when--between 1968 and 1974.

October and November 2009


UNEXPECTED RETURN
This has been a blessedly eventful month. Our oldest son, Bruce, was able to be in Taipei with us, ostensibly to take part in the class reunions of the Taipei American School. But since those activities used only three of his days there, he blessed us by teaching some of our classes and being a true encourager for all of us.

While Bruce was there, we had phone calls from the States saying that Enoch’s brother in Florida was comatose and not expected to live. We were able to get seats on a flight out Friday night, October 23, and were with Dan on Sunday. God’s timing is awesome! Bruce handled our duties in Taipei, and we were with Dan to see the beginnings of his recovery. The cause of the problem is unknown; Dan is undergoing therapy, and the prognosis is good. His gregarious personality is back in place, and we thank God!

RETURN TO TAIWAN
We have made reservations for a flight back to Taiwan, leaving here November 7. This fall our student load has been light, but we are eager to get re-connected with all of our readers. In addition, Brother Phil Gardner will arrive in Taipei on November 11 to begin his WEI classes. Although Ryan Campbell is in full time language school, he is able to meet with 3 or 4 students each week. His classes in Mandarin Chinese are going really well. His vocabulary is increasing at an unusual speed, and his prayer (in Chinese) on a recent Sunday morning expressed his deep spiritual conviction. There will be two special days while we are in Taiwan. On Nov 29, the church will host its fourth annual Thanksgiving Sunday, inviting all WEI students, friends, Christians, and neighbors. It’s always a great day! Then around Dec 12 the Tian Mu church will host a Christmas party for the Ti Hwei Children’s Home. We are glad we can have a part in this, and hope to help make it a joy-filled time.

ZHONGHUA
Since we have been in Nashville only a few days, we have not been too involved with the Zhong Hua activities. Enoch did re-connect with his Nashville WEI student, and also preached at our Sunday worship service.

THANK YOU
You are a blessing to us and our work among Chinese people, and we pray that, together, we all are giving glory to God! Our love to you.

Enoch and Jeannine


Nov/Dec 2010

WE HAVE RETURNED!
On Sunday, December 19, our son, Bruce, met us at the Sea-Tac Airport and took us to his home for a delightful three-day visit with him and his wife, Pat. Since then, we have traveled by automobile to visit with four others of our children. That leaves us with
plans to see the two in North Carolina some time later this year.

There are so many experiences we want to share with you. Our stay in Taiwan was split in two by our trip into the Big China! God’s hand was on us all the way, and He made it possible for us to visit many cities in China. We are grateful to the Nashville, Zhong Hua church, who contributed a healthy sum of money to pay for the Mainland travel. We are preparing a PowerPoint report about our trip.

HONG KONG and CHINA
Bro. Ka-Ming Siu, and his wife, Dora, along with the minister to the Philippine church in Wan Chai, helped us tremendously with transportation and housing arrangements while we were in Hong Kong. It was good to travel with Mike and Diana Folkerts, who had been teaching WEI classes with us in Taiwan. Saturday night Enoch spoke at a special meeting of the Wan Chai church; Sunday morning he and Mike co-taught a men’s Bible class, while Diana spoke to the ladies. Enoch preached in English at the morning worship, Ka-Ming interpreting into Cantonese. On Sunday afternoon Enoch preached at the Filipino English worship service. There are about 150 Philippine workers in this church, and the worship in praise is always superb!

Good things in China included:

  • visiting a state-of-the-art children’s hospital in Luoyang, where our friend and brother, Dr. Joshua Zhai, is surgeon and administrator. This hospital was endowed by Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife after the tragic death of their five-year-old adopted
    Chinese daughter.
  • seeing American teachers and their Chinese friends in Harbin, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Wuhan. º visiting our Chinese Christian friends in Beijing and Wuhan who had moved back to China from Nashville. º seeing our black haired son, Alex, and his wife and daughter, in their new quarters in Nanjing. He is enjoying the geological research there after having received his doctorate from Ohio State and doing post-doctoral research at Yale.
  • spending time in Dalang with the parents of our Alex and Rebecca, and speaking to about 300 parents of young children. We were advertised as “experts” on family life, but the questions they asked were the same questions asked by parents everywhere.
  • during our stay in Dalang, Hsu ____ took us to the vocational college to see our dear ______, who left Nashville last year to pursue training in communications and broadcasting. We had 3 or 4 precious hours with her, tears on all faces when we had to say goodbye.

    A TASTE OF HEAVEN
    Returning to Taiwan on Nov 19, we had a few days to prepare for the arrival of our daughter, Paula, her husband, Liam, and her daughter, Sara. Their five days with us were pure joy! They were there for the annual “Thanksgiving Sunday” hosted by the Tian M church. God is so good!

On December 19, the night before we left Taiwan, the church hosted a community Christmas party; nearly 200 people came. Many gifts had been prepared for the Ti children, and a talent show was put together. The children performed a pantomime which you may be familiar with. A Christian is surrounded and attacked by a number of tempters. God is calling to him, and he struggles to throw off the tempters. He finally wins through, and is re-united with God. Really well done!

THE ________  CHURCH
January 9 was the first opportunity we’ve had to worship with our local Chinese friends. Visitors from Murray KY were also present and had brought several Chinese students from the outreach program of the Murray church.. How encouraging this was to us!

THANK YOU
We are grateful for the opportunities that came our way. You are partners in all of this.

Enoch & Jeannine
