Taiwan Christmas Outreach 2012: Taiwan
Over 93% of Taiwanese are adherents of a combination of Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. Evangelical Christian is less than 3%. The most unreached people group in Taiwan is Hakka. The population of Hakka Christian is only 0.3%. Therefore, we are going to send a team to a small Hakka town to reach out Hakka.
This outreach has three core purposes:
1. To challenge participants in their personal growth and purpose in life by actively experiencing missions in Taiwan.
2. To broadly reach out to Hakka people and tell them about Jesus.
3. To encourage existing the Hakka Christians to get more involved in active ministry.
This is a great opportunity for those people with a heart for Taiwan and a desire to use their God-given talents to serve. It is also a meaningful time to meet the needy and disadvantaged minority, to warmth their hearts with God’s love.
