Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations,
And gather yourselves there.
Bring down, O Lord, Your mighty ones.
Joel 3:11 (NASB)
This year, we are calling all disciples from over 20 countries, stretching from the South to East to the North of Asia and further down south to Oceania, to gather in the lush tropics of Malaysia. It is a country known for its melting pot of cultures and ethnicity; so apt to celebrate the occasion.
The Asian Leadership Conference will be held in the Pearl of The Orient, Penang, whilst the Asian Singles and Asian Chinese Conferences in the city of Ipoh. Both boast a rich history of early settlers with the former shaped by the British and the latter by migrants from China who made a mint in tin mining. This sets the tone for our transient state, reminding us that this world is not our home.
And thus, a great time we will have to be inspired and recharged, girding up our loins to step out and finish the race. Besides the awesome, authentic fellowship, getting connected or re-connected with one another, we have exciting activities in store for you to dive right into the thick of Malaysian culture and tapestry.
As you are aware, we are also moving this to as many digital and social media platforms as possible for us to share the experience with disciples who are left behind in their home countries. All of our experiences will be shared organically through #keepitlit. This tagline is in keeping with the respective conferences’ themes and has a double meaning with our urban language. Together, let’s make this conference lit!
Book your flight tickets now and see you right here, very soon!
