Asia-Pacific Region celebrates love for missions at NMI conference
Nazarene Missions International Asia-Pacific held its “Celebrate Love for Missions“ online event on 12 February 2022. The conference was attended by over 300 participants from more than 15 countries.
The event sought to inform attendees about the importance of missions, encourage them to focus on and support the mission, and challenge them to respond to the call to missions.
The online gathering focused on various topics from the following speakers:
- Mark Louw, Asia-Pacific regional director, shared a message called “Why Missions?” that spoke about the importance of missions and how each person can partner with NMI in its goal of “making Christlike disciples in the nations.”
- Lola Brickey, global NMI director, talked about the five areas of impact where the local church can focus on its missions initiative. She was very excited and grateful to share with everyone the progress of the church last year until now.
- Janary Suyat, Asia-Pacific regional youth coordinator, re-introduced the importance of heeding the call to missions, whether as missionaries being sent out around the region and beyond or by supporting the work of missions through prayers and other resources.
- David Hane, Asia-Pacific regional personnel coordinator, walked the participants through a step-by-step process of becoming a missionary deployed by Global Missions.
- Terence and Ingrid Lustana, missionaries from Southeast Asia Field, presented the missionaries who are serving across the Asia-Pacific Region and challenged all the participants to spend time praying for them.
The participants were all challenged and encouraged to continue supporting Nazarene Missions International as it fulfills its part in the mission of making Christlike disciples in the nations.
The online event was made possible through the collaboration and partnership of the Asia-Pacific NMI Council led by Christine Mosuela, an Asia-Pacific regional NMI coordinator.
“Let’s continue to celebrate our love for missions until God’s Word reaches the unreached,” Mosuela said.
