Missionaries From Taiwan

Volume 3 Number 4 (Spring 1994)

 

In This Issue

Taiwan's Year 2000 Gospel Movement has the target of 200 missionaries from Taiwan by the year 2000. At present, approximately fifty Taiwanese have gone out as missionaries, so there is still a long way to go --and only six years before AD2000 leaps upon us. What is the church in Taiwan doing to encourage young Christians to think seriously about going out as missionaries?

In 1988, 1500 Christian college students attended Taiwan's triennial "Urbana"-style conference, which majored on cross-Cultural missionary work. In January 1994, the Presbyterian Church of Taiwan held a missions conference in Tainan, attended by 900 people. Campus Evangelical Fellowship (IVCF of Taiwan) has a newly-opened missions department that majors on bringing the needs of missions before the eyes of Taiwan's Christian college students, encouraging each college fellowship to "adopt" their own missionary. Also, China Evangelical Seminary and Chungtai Seminary have a missions major and Holy Light Seminary is planning to commence theirs in September.

Short-Term Missions

Volume 4 Number 1 (Summer 1994)

 

In This Issue

Short-term missionaries are back! They are going out in greater numbers than ever before! They are impacting mission fields and fields closedto missions! They are returning to their sending churches and telling their missions stories. As they do so, they are calling out yet more missionaries, enlisting more prayer support and encouraging more missions giving. Many return to the field, or go to another field, as career missionaries.

Short-term personnel do cause extra work for the mission. Housing must be provided. Language study may be offered. On-the-field orientation takes time and effort. As the missions receiving short-term workers make these provisions, they recognize that the short-termers bring vital contributions to the field. They bring enthusiasm and vitality that only new personnel have. They cause long-term missionaries to look at their own efforts through new eyes. While causing some extra work forthe mission, they also relieve missionaries of tasks and allow the mission to growand expand its efforts.

Social Problems in Taiwan

Volume 4 Number 2 (Fall 1994)

 

In This Issue

 In the 1980's and 90's Taiwan has been in the midst of rapid social change. Just twenty-five years ago it was possible to see water buffalo drawn carts rolling down Chungshan North Road in slow moving Taipei! Not today! Taiwan is now known for its traffic congestion, high rise buildings, wealthy citizens, unruly legislature and urban chaos. Taiwan is no longer a nation that receives international relief, but instead is a nation that gives money and relief workers to nations that need them. 

 With the dramatic economic and social changes have also come the problems of modem society. Abortion, euthanasia, sexual abuse, drug and alcohol abuse are some of the problems that are all around us. Often the approach to combating these social ills, is one of another education campaign. If people are enlightened with information, it is thought, these problems will cease to exist. However, we know that the basic reason for these problems is the sinful nature in all of us.
