Taiwan

Taiwan is a country with many Buddhists, Daoists,  and followers of folk religions. Many are open to hearing the gospel, but family and social pressures make it difficult for new believers to make a commitment to following Jesus. Taiwan needs missionaries who are willing to work alongside Taiwanese Christians to further the work
of the gospel.

CHALLENGES

 

  • The language is complex, which makes sharing the true gospel message a challenge

    • Mandarin is spoken with many variations

  • Strong family ties mean that converting to Christianity could result in new believers being disowned

  • Building connections 

 

CULTURE

 

  • Taiwanese are warm, inviting, and relational

  • The culture is indirect, particularly in dealing with conflict or offenses

  • Different religions are tolerated

  • Family ties are essential to the culture's idea of a fulfilled life

  • People are gracious, allowing for opportunities to demonstrate love that is genuinely reciprocated

 
 
 

Response to christianity

  • Success eliminates what many see as the need for Jesus

  • Jesus Christ is often added to a list of gods to be worshipped

  • Open to listening to the gospel, but slower to accept

  • The younger generation is caught between showing respect for the traditional teachings of their parents and they believe themselves

 

How to pray

  • For a continued openness to the gospel

  • For real understanding of the gospel that will result in genuine and complete commitment

  • For wisdom for missionaries to use resources as effectively as possible
