"Bai-Bai" (拜拜), meaning "worship" , plays a significant role in the life of Taiwanese people. It has exceeded the role of religion, and has become part of their everyday life. Almost anybody will bai-bai on any occasion, anywhere, anytime, to any gods, gods they don't even know. This is a part of their cultural identity and why we need the power of God to reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
