• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Mission11 Asia Update[1]

The conference started yesterday.  Here are just a few short impressions of the time together so far:

* Eighty-five participants with a number of participants from other places: board members, church leaders interested in church based teams and interns.

* Each day, participants are looking at a portion of Philippians 4. During today’s meditation, James shared this thought: “It is extremely helpful to be helpless.”

* James then asked us, in small groups, to reflect on this question: “Do we normally approach God in prayer from a position of helplessness?

* Workers and believers in Cambodia host a yearly “prayer summit” where they pray together for three days for a particular area of the country.

* Tom shared that a multiplication of disciples and communities of believers calls for a high level of intentionality so that it is not just workers who ‘bring the Gospel’ but all belivers are developed empowered and released to bring the Gospel to others.

* The Commonwealth church in Manila is looking to establish a new community of believers among those who work in call centers for large businesses.  People working in
these centers are available most often in the middle of the night, so innovative approaches to such a ministry are needed.

More later …
