You are invited to the Asia Mission Initiative Summit scheduled for March 1-3, 2020. The event is designed to bring together in one place key supporters of the four Asian Mission Initiatives (Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, and Vietnam). It will provide the opportunity for supporters of these Mission Initiatives to be together to hear updates from Missionaries, learn of Asia Office plans, share experiences and provide support to these efforts. To this end the lead Bishops for each Initiative and Missionaries have invited key mission leaders to attend the Summit. You were identified as one of the key supporters of a mission initiative and we are requesting that you attend this Summit. If you know of others who would want to participate, please share this information with them. Participants will be responsible for their own expenses.
As Bishop for the North Carolina Conference, I am delighted to host this event. The Summit will be held at Edenton Street United Methodist Church, 228 West Edenton Street, Raleigh, NC 27603. The Summit will begin at 2:00 pm on Sunday, March 1 and conclude at 11:00 am on Tuesday, March 3.

Everyone interested in ministry partnerships in Vietnam are invited to stay for the Vietnam Consultation. This collaboration will take place the afternoon of March 3, through the morning of March 5.
