Pray For

  • Holy Light Theological Seminary
  • leadership-development initiatives into creative-access countries
  • the after-school programs in several FM churches
  • continued evangelistic and church-planting efforts like the recently successful “blessing groups”
  • young people being trained and developed as leaders

PRESENT MINISTRIES

One of the longest-established FM works in Asia, the Taiwan annual conference continues to grow and mature. With vibrant ministries such as Holy Light Theological Seminary, small group ministry (“Blessing Groups”), and cross-cultural outreach within the island and beyond, the conference is reaching people for Christ. Yet ministry remains challenging, as many of the region’s young people are strongly attracted by the allure of materialism.

Outreach to the World

Free Methodists in Taiwan support ministries among the CA people and the tribal people in a major city in Creative Access Asia – MR. Taiwan oversees leadership development in creative access areas.

Origins

Free Methodist work began in the late 1940s when missionaries joined the massive migration from China as Communist forces overtook the mainland.

Always a Friend for Jesus

There are over 700,000 migrant workers in Taiwan, with Indonesians being the largest group, numbering around 260,000. Eighty percent of the Indonesian migrant workers are women, serving as caregivers in the homes of elderly Taiwanese. They work long hours, almost 24/7, and have very little time off. The children of the elderly usually don’t live with them, so it is hard to find a substitute for their day off.
