Tomorrow (Sat, 7. November) there's set to be a "historic meeting" between Ma Ying-Jeou (president of Taiwan) and Xi Jin-Ping (president of China).
The whole political issue behind all this is pretty complex... the short version is:
  • Back in 1949 at the end of the Chinese Civil War, Chiang Kai-Shek (former president of China / Republic of China) escaped to Taiwan after losing to the communists. He continued his government in Taiwan (in the form of a dictatorship and military rule which only ended in 1988). This resulted in there being a (communist) People's Republic of China on the mainland, and (Chiang Kai-Shek's) Republic of China on Taiwan - two Chinas. Which doesn't work, which is why Taiwan (which to this day is officially called "Republic of China") is not recognised by the UN.

  • The majority of Taiwanese do not see themselves as in any way connected to the mainland. That Taiwan is called "Republic of China" makes no sense because the average Taiwanese does not believe the government of Taiwan is the "real government" of China. However, we can't change our name because China has hundreds of missiles pointed at us and does not want Taiwan to declare independence (even though right now Taiwan does have its own government and has been functioning separately from China for a very long time) (plus, Taiwan only ever belonged to China for short spaces of time, long ago).

Tomorrow, the presidents will meet. Many pro-independence Taiwanese are very skeptical of the meeting (from what I've seen), afraid that Ma will sell Taiwan out to China.

You can read more about the planned meeting here:…

Please pray for this meeting, for wisdom for the leaders of both sides, and that the talks can go in the right direction. I'm really hoping that the meeting will turn out for the good of Taiwan, and not jeopardise her independence.
A good thing would be if China would remove the missiles (which seems to be one of Ma's aims at least)...

Thanks... :heart:

I'm a missionary kid (i.e. my parents are missionaries) and cross-cultural kid (i.e. my parents come from different cultures) and grew up in Asia. I am from 3 continents. :)

I'm currently studying theology in my "foreign home country", being trained as a pastor, but I hope to return to Asia as a missionary.

My big project is writing a poem for (almost) every woman in the Bible.…


Ten Seconds Prayer for Taiwan:

:icongreat-comission: :iconwomen-of-god:


But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ. (Ephesians 3:8)
