OASIS 2010

We’ve just arrived back in Taiwan after a week of R&R in Thailand where we participated in Baptist Mid-Missions’ OASIS 2010 spiritual enrichment conference (Oceania-Asia Strengthening & Inspiring Servants).

OASIS 2010: Spiritual enrichment conference held in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Our conference speaker was Dr. Ed Sears of Winston Salem, NC who taught a variety of sessions on topics taken from the book of Psalms. His wife, Linda, taught the ladies for the split sessions. Additionally, Brian and Patty Johnson came from the US to work with the small children and another BMM colleague preparing for Asian ministry, came to minister to our teens. Missionaries were present from Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Thailand as well as a few “Creative Access” Asian nations. We had many opportunities for formal interaction and informal sharing of ideas and strategies with co-workers whom we rarely meet from other Asian fields. The spiritual fellowship and mutual encouragement was uplifting and challenging. Some of those who attended were new acquaintances to us, but by the end of the conference we felt like old friends. We return home refreshed and reinvigorated for ministry. To see more pictures of this trip view our web album.
