About Me

CURRENT MISSION

trying to build up a energetic village where chosen couples can use their gifts to make their living and help each other just like an Utopia to practice our mission given by Him.

ABOUT ME

We're busy at summer for 28 days therapeutic camp. That's why we can't host CSers in summer. I love taking youths at risk outdoor especially mountains. My parents got divorced when I was 12. That's why I can understand their loneliness very well. I was helped and changed by a Christian. I'm deeply moved and I can't pay him back. The only thing I can do is to do what he did to me to those youth in need. I wish my life more meaningful to others around me.

I'm married and adopted a son and a daughter. I love travelling but I can't bring them with me to other CSers couches. Because my wife doesn't allow me to do this. So, I'll host as much CSers as I can to make up to myself that I can't travel by myself.

PHILOSOPHY

I can't satisfy all people around me but I try to satisfy my conscience and my God.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

There are few adventure therapies in Taiwan right now but we need it badly. I wish we can start a community working on this new field to help youths in need in Asia espeially for Chinese. So I need experts of all kinds such like coaches of outdoor activities and therapists and social workers to create the model of adventure therapy in Taiwan .

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

There were 13 of us just got back from Hualien for 4 days trip of Sep 2008. We stayed in a campsite for 2 nights for free. The owner of the campsite runs a company of outdoor activities. He is very kind and asked us to use their gears(kayaks and bikes)to have some programs for youths at risks. By the way,it's really pretty there.
