【林婉婷採訪報導】由台灣基督長老教為總會青年事工委員會主辦的「我愛台灣宣教營」(I Love Taiwan Mission Camp,簡稱ILT),已於7月13日正式結束。今年為排灣中會牡林、長樂教會首次接待ILT青年,分別是來自美國的林孟瑜(Megan Lin)和日本的髙坂若菜(Wakana Kosaka)。

Recently, I’ve read a report from Cosmiccare, named “The Real Needs from Rural Places”. In this article, it said that even if there is a weak community with poverty, a good teacher and a couple might become a help and serve the needs of community…..→http://paiwan.com.tw/UniandUbak/?p=28
