OMF Taiwan has worked hard in the past few years to really increase the awareness of the needs of Taiwan. They are doing a great job helping new missionaries arrive on island and get started in language school (before strategically placing them in areas to help the working class)! I am very thankful for the many friends I have made who are serving Taiwan with OMF and deeply respect the organization in Taiwan.
There is also a case for local missions work and church planting. But there is a cost of supporting these Taiwanese gospel workers. Many times it is hard for churches to give beyond the needs in their own local body or for new believers to raise support from family. So many young believes who feel called to ministry are working really hard in tough temporary jobs to make enough to live on and still have time to serve in new outreach areas. Two of the volunteers working with the NCUE student fellowship are in these sort of job positions.
Please join them in 'praying for more stable jobs that can free them up to help more with the student fellowship outreach, but this is extremely difficult in Taiwan, considering that work is difficult to find and requires increasingly difficult exams that can take up to several years of diligent study to even pass. Please continue to pray for God's provision of jobs and of new individuals who are emotionally, socially and spiritually equipped to return and carry on the ministry of reaching out to students.' -JN
Taiwan needs Christian workers, missionaries, church planters... to come live on the island and be the light of Jesus on this hard ground.
