After about four months of bantering around slogans for our Women’s Ministry Conference, we finally came up with the perfect one.

I spent last Thursday and Friday in Singapore and it was great to get back to the TWR office to catch up with the things I had missed while in Canada.  Our conference planning committee met and the details are starting to come together very nicely.

We have women signed up to attend from Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Singapore.  We are very grateful for our  home church, West London Alliance who has covered 60% of the cost of the accomodations for a week long stay in Singapore for women who for the first time will receive training and resources to use in counseling listeners from their own countries.

Although all of the women speak English well enough to translate scripts and write reports, it is not the heart language of any of them.  We have planned a very full week that would be a challenge for even a native English speaker, so we will need some real wisdom and sensitivity in ensuring that the ladies are not completely exhausted when they leave.
