Young Tim Has His Dream After Having Enough Food and Clothing

10-year-old Tim was anxious for food when he first came to Mustard Seed Youth Home. Tim would take more food than he needed and secretly hide the food under the bed. After being cared and taught by the counselors, Tim slowly clarify the difference between "wants" and "needs". He now takes only appropriate amounts of food at each meal

This year, 16-year-old Tim has a stable life at the Youth Home. Because he is interested in cooking, he studied catering at school. For the future, Tim holds infinite hope to become a chef, or open a restaurant of his own one day. 

Empower Taiwan vulnerable children to get well prepared for future and dream!

Lillian R. Dickson's Quotes

The mountains, where the sick and humble people live, often neglected and dying, - where help needed.

“ The mountains, where the sick and humble people live, often neglected and dying, - where help needed....”

A great deal of our work for the Lord is in faraway places on the Island, not in showcase of Taipeh. Taipeh is not typical Formosa, but it is the place where weary travelers, in search of new material for books, articles, movies, pause and try to savour a thousand-year old civilization and incredibly dramatic lives in one or two anguished days. Even in two or three days' stay they are also dealing with tiredness, exit permits, and the time of planes.
Our work is mostly in the backwater of the Island, in the foothills of the mountains. The mountains, where the sick and humble people live, often neglected and dying, - where help needed.

▏Extracted from Lillian R. Dickson's Letters - Oct 1957

Photo: Lillian Dickson, the founder of the Mustard Seed Mission, came to Taiwan not to stay in the urbanized Taipei, but to go to the places on the island that need help the most. The photo shows her traveling to the tribes with the medical team to provide simple treatment for the aboriginal patients.


You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself.

Mark 12:30-31
