119 is the emergency number in Taiwan... Vision 119 is an urgent calling for 119 workers to plant 60 churches along old Route 1 and 19!
Route 1 and 19 are densely populated areas in Taiwan that go from Southern to Northern Taiwan. Many of the counties the two highways run through are industrial and working class regions. People everywhere in Taiwan work hard and commit their lives to support hopes of a better life and happiness for the next generation. True hope seems
Please pray for the SEND International to mobilize the needed cross-cultural workers for Taiwan. The island is in desperate need for Christian workers willing to humbly serve the people and share Christ. Please pray each worker will be able to raise necessary financial and prayer support, make good transitions to Taiwan, and share Christ as they root in their new location. The road to serving internationally takes dependence on God's great provision and faith to follow Him. Please pray for a great harvest in Taiwan. The devastation and hopelessness of sin is overwhelming and there is only one Savior to bring life, freedom, and restore relationship with God!
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
Although it is almost a year since being with our friends in Taiwan. We are excited to visit again soon... next month... October! Please pray we can quickly reconnect. We are also praying for God's direction on how to partner in his work in Taiwan longer
I heard recently that one of our Asia Navigator country ministries has about 10,000 alumni coming out from their Nav campus ministries over the years! I wonder how many alumni have come out from our Taiwan ministries, that are now scattered throughout Taiwan and other places? In June many more of our graduates join this growing group.
Please pray that our alumni would continue to grow in Christ throughout their whole lives and bear lasting fruit for the Father's glory.
Pray that every person in Taiwan will have the opportunity to know a Christ-like follower and hear a Christ-centered Gospel.
And finally, pray that we as staff will be faithful in keeping in touch and shepherding our alumni throughout each stage of their lives, and fulfill our Call to advance the Gospel of Jesus throughout Taiwan and into the nations.
Grateful to be praying with you,
The Taiwan Navigators
The Formosa Channel on Vimeo has many interesting videos (creatively) illustrating the island of Taiwan. It is always great to see how so many other people have a love for the 'Beautiful Island' and the way the beauty has uniquely captured their attention. If you are interested in visiting Taiwan or praying for the people there, these videos will help give you a visual idea of what the country is like. I hope you enjoy these diverse perspectives!
The first time to Alishan was very memorable for me... It was one of the very first couple weekends while Julie, Rachel and I were in Taiwan. I joined a couple friends for some time in the cool mountains for a weekend. Since we didn't have a car or know how to use the bus transportation well enough, we hired a local taxi driver to take us to our where our friends were staying. We learned quickly about the intense skills of taxi drivers and how fast you can push a car up tight mountain switchbacks (sickness was near and fear for our lives was constant). Thankfully, we arrived safely and were not disappointed with the great time with friends and views of God's handy work throughout the park!
This album is thanks to Teacher Em, living the life in Taiwan! I hope you enjoy her photos from one of those unique places on the beautiful island of Taiwan!
Praise the Lord, all nations!
Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!
Lord, it is awesome how you have created the nations and different peoples! It is so amazing to see the unique way each different culture responds to your great ways. You have brought people to your name all over the world. And Taiwan too! Thank you for caring for them and being willing to love them. It is such a privilege to see Taiwanese believers praise your name and give honor to you. There hasn't been a single moment when you have lost track of your plans or changed your mind about Taiwan. You are always faithful!
Please continue in your promise to reveal your salvation to the people of Taiwan. Demonstrate to them your great righteousness. Lord, please help them with their fear and protect them from the evil one's ways. You are savior to all, and willing to die for the Taiwanese even before they knew you.
Thank you for being God alone! Thank you for dying for my sins and the people of Taiwan's. Thank you Lord for being in control and working in our lives! Please bring your salvation to Taiwan through your marvelous ways so only your name will be praised.
