TAIPEI, Taiwan—On a Friday night middle and high-school students filled the wooden pews at Taipei Wesley Methodist Church for a weekend youth missions conference.
Sitting in the darkened hall, they focused on the stage where two Caucasian actors dressed in traditional Chinese garb played the famed missionary James Hudson Taylor and his wife Maria. With a minimalistic backdrop, the actors depicted vital points in the couple’s life in nearly flawless Mandarin—their decision to move to China, doubts and fears as they faced hardships on the field, and Maria’s early death.
