Editor’s note: This is the last installment of Marilee’s series of stories from her recent trip to Taiwan. Read the previous stories here: 40 years later, a reunion of love, Little seeds that grew, and Sometimes faith is a blank check.
Lillian Dickson, missionary to Taiwan, once used these words — “A need beyond the horizon of the world” — to describe the suffering of the people of Taiwan when she lived there in the mid-20th century.
Working for World Vision these past 14 years, I know exactly how she felt. The needs of this world are overwhelming to me, stretching far beyond the horizon.
My recent time in Taiwan was a wonderful reminder of what can happen when just a few ordinary people decide to step out in faith and trust God to do what He does best — the impossible.
As the following pictures will show, God did not fail Lillian and the people of Puli, and He will not fail us. He will send the provision on time. He will fill the empty cupboards. He will cash our blank checks.
And He will sustain us in our “little walk of faith.”
