A Journey of Faith: Bible Translation and Language Preservation On Remote Island Southeast Of Taiwan

Christianity is central in Lanyu, a small island in southeastern Taiwan. Almost 90% of the island's 5,000 residents are aborigines from the Tao tribe. Due to social changes, the number of people under 30-years-old who can speak the Tao language has dwindled. The UN agency, UNESCO, has classified the Tao language as endangered. Language preservation is a challenge facing the Tao people today.
