Taiwan – Reaching Asia with the Gospel
Have you ever felt a tug on your heart to bring the gospel to Asia? This RP Mission team will be working with congregations in Taipei, Taiwan that have been active in such ministry for years and you can learn about their vision for seeing the region transformed through Jesus Christ. This trip is for those who are considering long term ministry among the Chinese, whether in the US or overseas.
Description of aim and purpose of this mission team: Spending four weeks in Taiwan will be a valuable time to begin to learn Chinese, as well as to learn about Chinese Culture and the Chinese Church. The trip will involve both classroom learning and firsthand experience of what it means to do mission work. This trip is more for you to learn and experience missions than it is for you to “do something”.
In the mornings we will have beginning Chinese classes. The content will be similar to a one term college course in Chinese. The afternoons will be mostly free to spend time with people you meet and to get to know Taipei City. The evenings will be a mixture of street evangelism and fellowship groups.
The evangelism will be low key. The aim will be to meet people and invite them to either a fellowship group (at a Reformed Church) or to talk about Christianity (in English with you). There will also be other activities. We will visit one or two of our church plants; attend our Denomination’s Junior and Senior High 4 day summer conference; and help in any way that is needed.
It will be hot in Taiwan, both in the day (90 degrees) and the night (80 degrees). The bedding situation is uncertain, so it would be best to bring a light weight sheet or a very light weight sleeping bag. We will provide a pillow. Members might bring a light weight jacket, but they may never use it. Everything else can be purchased here – mosquito repellant, etc.
