Dr. Bennie Bough的啟示/Inspiration from Dr. Bennie Bough

Dr. Bennie Bough, the Charter President of the Taipei Toastmasters Club in 1958, the very first Toastmasters club in Taiwan, was invited back from States the to Taipei to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Taipei Toastmasters Club on Jan. 5, 2008. In his keynote speech, Dr. Bennie Bough mentioned that when he first started the Taipei Toastmasters Club, there were only 3 people, but since then it has created two District Governors (Y.H. Chen, DTM, and Bing Bing Lin, DTM), and one International President (Bennie Bough served as International President of Toastmasters International from 1992-1993.) The "seed" he had planted from that initial beginning with the Taipei Toastmasters Club has turned into a "tree" and grown even into such a "forest!"  District 67 has now over 125 clubs in ! 

Since August 2007, our team members and my humble self have been struggling to sponsor a new club — Taiwan Toastmasters Club. Unlike my past successful experiences of sponsoring 14 new clubs, this job has turned out difficult to establish a bilingual community club in Taipei Shihlin area. By the end of December 2007, we had only 9 members after hardworking for 5 months. We had to pay the meeting room rental and we had financial deficit. We all felt somewhat exhausted. Our team members considered seriously to give up. 

When I sat in the chair listening to Dr. Bennie Bough’s speech, watching the old photos when he was 50 years younger, I heard they had only three people for their demo meeting and yet the Taipei Toastmasters Club has survived for 50 years. I was suddenly enlightened by the positive thinking that we had nine people and we can survive proportionally for 150 years. We should not give up! Then, things are getting better and better. In February of 2008 we have more than 20 members to apply for a charter! 

Jesus said unto Simon, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.”  But Simon answered and said unto Him, “Master, we have toiled all night, and caught nothing: nevertheless at your word I will let down the net.”  And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. (
Luke 5: 4-6 )

Dear Bennie, heartfelt gratitude for your effort to come back to . We want you to know that you hold a very special place in our heart. 

Bing Bing Lin has chartered the following clubs:

 

 

1958台灣第一個演講會台北演講分會的創會會長Dr. Bennie Bough今年一月五日受邀自美回台參加中華民國演協會在台五十週年慶。在他的專題演說中,他提到當年他創會時只有三位會員,當中有兩位總會會長  (Y.H. Chen, DTM, and Bing Bing Lin, DTM)和一位國際總會會長  Bennie Bough (1992-1993) 。當年他所灑的種(台北分會),如今已經成為一棵樹,而且豐收。現在67區已經有超過125個分會! 
 

2007年八月,我跟我的幹部們掙扎是否要支援一個新分會,就是台灣雙生代分會。跟我過去成功支援14個分會的經驗不同,在士林地區要創立一個雙語分會,這份差事顯的異常困難。2007年年底,經過五個月的耕耘,我們只有招收到九位會員,當時我們還要付場地費,所以我們的財物是虧損的。我們感覺很疲累,所以審慎考慮放棄。 
 

當我坐在椅子上聆聽Dr. Bennie Bough的演講,看者他五十年前年經時候的照片,想到當時他們只有三個會員,但是台北分會卻已經走過五十載, 我突然被激發,我們有九位會員,這樣算來我們起碼可以存活一百五十年。我們不可以放棄!之後事情演變卻到吃甘蔗!20082月,我們已經有超過20位會員,我們獲准申請分會 
 

耶穌對西門說:「把船開到水深之處,下網打魚。」西門說:「夫子,我們整夜勞力,並沒有打著什麼。但依從你的話,我就下網。 」他們下了網,就圈住許多魚,網險些裂開。 (路加福音 5: 4-6 )  
 

親愛的Bennie,由衷感謝您再度回到台灣,您永遠在我們心中佔有一定的份量!
