Visiting the Family For the Birth of Laurie

Right now weare in the USA visiting my 5th Grandchild who was born a couple weeks ago. His name is Laurie after one of the characters in the book Little Women. Red love his little brother.

The 9th of Sept. we had a global conference of 400 people in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There were co-laborers from the entire globe. In my opinion one of the most challenging plenary addresses was given by our own regional leader and my boss.

Did you know that 36% of the entire world identifies as Christian. At the same time Asia, which makes up close to 2/3rds of the world, is only 7% Christian? My boss spoke of fruit that is perhaps beyond our reach unless we make some serious changes to our efforts. The challenge, God is going to reach them. Will we be a part of what He has planned? I want to be.

We broke apart into affinity groups. I led the discussion group on Buddhism. We discussed the Buddhist Worldview, Buddhist outreach, Buddhist Apologetics and interestingly, the Post Buddhist audience. You understand Europe and much of America is Post Christian. Well, what is a post Buddhist and how do we share with them. It was a lot of work but very profitable.

And, now I am preparing for GAIN a conference of about 180 in Malaysia. Please pray for our time together. Awn and I will be in Malaysia on Oct 30.
