The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, occupies the island of
Taiwan and several smaller islands. It is located off mainland China's
southeastern coast. Through rapid economic growth and industrialization
it is now one of the world's largest trading powers.
Taiwan became the
refuge of the Nationalist Chinese government after the Communist
takeover of mainland China in 1949. It is shunned politically by the rest
of the world for fear of offending Communist China, which still refuses to
recognize Taiwan's government. Since free elections in 1987, it
has been a multi-party democracy.
Taiwan is a secular state with freedom
of religion. Most of the population follows Chinese folk religions,
practicing the veneration and worship of ancestors. Only
a small percentage
have become Christians.
