Dear Friends and Partners in Mission,
The “2011 Cambodia Consultation” is coming up in about a month, now, March 31 to April 2 in San Jose, California, sponsored by the General Board of Global Ministries and the California-Nevada Conference of The United Methodist Church. If you would like to attend and haven’t registered yet, it would be good to get your registration in.
The purpose of this periodic gathering of friends throughout the U.S. of the United Methodist mission initiative in Cambodia is education, planning, fellowship, and celebration of Cambodian-American ministries. The focus will be on concerns and perspectives of (1) the Khmer church leadership, (2) missionaries, and (3) volunteer in mission teams, all of whom will be represented. Newcomers are welcome.
Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. extends a warm invitation to attend. “When I visited Cambodia last February, I saw a beautiful land with a rich cultural heritage that had lost nearly a whole generation of leaders in the 1970s. I saw first-hand the urgent need today for leadership development and for alleviation of poverty. And, I saw the excitement and vitality of Methodists and new Christians practicing their faith in a setting where they are very much a struggling minority. The California-Nevada Annual Conference is proud to support its Cambodian-American community in sponsoring this Consultation.”
