Andrew and Kris Larsen are missionaries in Taiwan through LBIM since 2005. They are focusing on sharing the gospel with the Hakka people, an ethnic minority in that country. Each day, they are building relationships that will give them opportunities to share Jesus. Please remember to pray for Andrew and Kris and their three children: Isaak (11) Noelle (9) and Joseph (8). What a privilege it is for Hope Church to partner with the Andrew and Kris doing God's work in Taiwan!
