Methodist MIssionaries Together!

This past week we had a wonderful opportunity to participate in a Regional Methodist Missionary Meeting held in Hiroshima, Japan.  Missionaires from East Asia and the Pacific, their familes and Staff from the US all gathered for about 5 days.  We shared stories, worshiped and prayed with one another, and sought to better understand how we can bring the gospel to the world and what it is our tradition has to offer.  Dr David Pascua from the Philippines helped us to see that our focus as Methodists should be on helping both the individual and society become more and more like God.  The Kingdom of God should break into our hearts and that can help us to seek the society around us looking like God’s Kingdom.

It was a blessing and an encouragement at the same time to share and listen to those serving around this area of the world.  As we returned back to ARI, we were energized to continue our work and to help our community members and our community itself become more and more like the one God calls us to be.   Won’t you join us in this work?
