We attended the Sunday worship this morning. The worship was traditional Presbyterian style liturgy that included hymns, reading of scripture, the creed, special music, the offering, the benediction, etc. and used piano. For the special music, the two school girls joined Annie and Ching-Ya in singing a quartet on “The Invisible Hands” which is the theme song of “6 – Kameyama to orphanages” Youth Children’s Choir. We heard that the two school girls are orphans. One even witnessed her mother’s suicide in very young age. The song was very moving and many were in tears.
After the Sunday worship, we bid farewell to Guogou church. Steven drove us to Taibao HSR Chiayi station. In the train, Ching-Ya shared with me her visitation of two families. These two families were handicapped people. One family with both husband and wife were born in handicap and one of their children was also born in handicap. They need lots of care from the community and the church. It was heart-broken to hear these kinds of stories.
