Diocesan Chinese Mission Conference
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

The Diocesan Chinese Mission Conference will be held at Sinkawang, Indonesia from 19-24 November 2018. A total of 11 members from St Patrick’s Church led by Rev Ho Kee Chung will be joining the conference. It will be a 2-day Conference with 2-day of Outreach. Participants will learn about mission, local context and cultural sensitivities and other related missions topics for the first two days. Then they will put their learning into practice with the local church outreach program. Altogether there will be 55 participants from the whole Diocese.

Why Sinkawang? One of the reasons why the Diocesan Mission Committee chose Sinkawang to be the conference and mission exposure venue is because of the Hakka-speaking population in the West Kalimantan region. Most of the Hakka-speaking community are still unreached with the Gospel of Christ. We will be working with one of the local Chinese churches for the outreach program. As most of our participants also speak Hakka, it will be an easier bridge for the 2 days’ outreach.

The Mission Diocesan Strategy to have the conference outside Sabah has proven to be effective. The first was the English Mission Conference held at Rangsit, Thailand in 2016. Last year was the BM Mission Conference in Nunukan, Indonesia.

The Mission Diocesan Strategy to have the conference outside Sabah has proven to be effective. The first was the English Mission Conference held at Rangsit, Thailand in 2016. Last year was the BM Mission Conference in Nunukan, Indonesia. Both conferences received positive feedbacks as the participants did not only learn about mission but were also able to see what a mission field was like. Let us pray for all the 55 participants from Sabah that God will protect their journey and also have a life-transforming experience with regard to mission and the work of the church outside Sabah.
