Meet Samuel and Esther Wang
Several years ago, Samuel Wang accepted a call to Taiwan to serve as the associate director of Global Mission’s Study Center for East Asian Religions and Traditions. Samuel develops contextualized material for reaching the Mahayana Buddhists in Taiwan and around the world. As a result, many of them are accepting Jesus. “It has been a pressing challenge for the Church to reach this big group,” says Samuel.
Samuel holds evangelistic meetings in many countries to reach the Mahayana Buddhists. His ministry includes training future pastors in mission outreach at Adventist educational institutions. And as Chinese communities grow around the world, he helps church leaders understand their particular culture and plant churches that minister to their needs.
When Samuel’s wife, Esther, attended church her first Sabbath in Taiwan, there was no suitable Sabbath School class for their son. She had seen children studying during the week in the multi-function room of the church. She learned that the church participated in an after-school program for students from low-income and single-parent families in the community.
With the church’s approval, Esther began visiting the students and their parents. She invited the children to join her and her son for Sabbath School.
There are now between 15 to 20 children attending Sabbath School each week and the group continues to grow!
Please pray for Samuel and Esther Wang as they share the love of Jesus in Taiwan and for the ministry of the Study Center for East Asian Religions and Traditions. To learn more about Global Mission’s study centers, visit www.AdventistMission.org.
