A Visit to Bethlehem Mission Society

Swiss alphorn player Mike Maurer made a journey to Taitung arranged by IWCS and WWDF to show the gratitude of 70 years of Bethlehem Mission Society of Switzerland's evangelization in Taiwan. 

The first stop was the Bethlehem Mission Society where he learned about the history and legacy of the missionaries; Piyoxo Catholic Church and the grave of the fathers, where Mike’s music served as a tribute to their enduring spirit and profound impact. Later, Mike visited Taitung Art Center, Bethlehem Love Art Exhibition where 34 artists record and pass on the touching stories of the mission. Also founded by Swiss priest, Kung-Tung Vocational High School woodworking department considered as the cradle of Taiwanese woodworking, Mike had the chance to listen to the angelic vocal of the choir, marking this magical journey full of thankfulness.
