Mission: Taiwan – June-July 2020

Why Taiwan?

Taiwan’s Population: 23 million and yet only 2-5% of the population is Christian. Christianity is a minority religion in Taiwan following Buddhism, Ancestor worship and Chinese folk or tribal religions.

Taiwan’s government is a Constitutional Republic with a President, Parliament. It has free elections and there is freedom of religion. Taiwan calls itself the Republic of China (ROC).

The spiritual need is great — “everyone has equal worth but not everyone has equal opportunity to hear the Gospel.” We want to be a small part of introducing Taiwanese to the wonder of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What will we do? We have four objectives …

English Summer Kids’ Camp:

We will partner with two Taiwanese churches to teach English to kids up through middle school and maybe high school. This is a pre-evangelistic opportunity to help serve the churches to reach their community.

Orphanage Projects:

We will continue to work with an orphanage where we serve the kids’ needs; orphanage building projects; help them develop various skills.

Leader Development Trek:

As a team along with some Taiwanese, we will hike Taiwan mountain trails. This will be a team-building and leader training exercise.

Taiwan Tour to introduce us to Taiwanese culture and the spiritual darkness:

This will give us a hands on opportunity to learn about Taiwan’s history, culture and spiritual needs. This is an eye opening experience that will help our team know how to pray and engage.

When will we do it?

Depart: To be finalized: Late June into early July, for two weeks.

Who should join?

Are you fit to travel and hike in mountains?
Do you want your faith to grow?
Do you like adventure?
Do you want to help reach the unreached people groups with the Gospel?

What will it cost?

Depending on airfare — approximately $2,300.

The Purpose of 2020 summer cross-cultural projects is twofold:  

1. To have a cross-cultural experience where we will meet with Asians in various settings to learn about their world view and share a biblical worldview. We will listen to their stories, share our salvation story and, as the Lord permits, share Jesus’s story – the Gospel.

2. This is also a leader training experience with our team. We will learn about servant leadership through serving, meeting needs, and discipleship discussions along our journey.

We will be engaging in trekking/backpacking discipleship and evangelistic adventures; English language camps; working with minority people groups in rural areas.

Our travel dates will be June 27 through July, 2020. Team members may join a two-week version or participate the entire time.

Mission: Nepal, October-November 2020

 

Why Nepal?

“The land-locked nation of Nepal between China and India was, until 2006, the world’s only officially Hindu nation, with 86 percent of the population being Hindu and only 0.6 percent Christian. Today, Christians make up 2.8 percent of the population while Hindus account for 75 percent.”
— Joshua Project

 

“Famous for its high peaks and wind-whipped prayer flags, Hindu-majority Nepal used to be a nation unreached by Christianity.  Now the country has one of the fastest-growing Christian populations in the world.”
— World Christian Database

 

What will we do?

Partner with a Grace Church (a Nepali church) and/or other Nepali organizations like FIVE14. We trek to mountain villages where much exploitation has taken place, and engage the villagers with community projects.

(Last year we held an eye clinic and gave out over 80 pairs of eye glasses. We also have assisted in transforming the Hope Nepali Childrens’ Home into an “Airbnb” and a training center.)

When will we do it?

Depart:  October, 23th into early November.

Who should join? 

Are you fit to travel?
Do you want your faith to grow?
Do you like adventure?
Do you want to help reach the unreached people groups with the Gospel?

What will it cost?

Depending on airfare — approximately $2,500.
