Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In recent years we’ve seen so many changes and developments in the world. The globalization, as a present reality, is still in progress.
Asia, in this world of globalization, has become an important player.
All of us share our mutual responsibility to play our role.
It is in this context that we have gathered together.
We are to create and develop a network within our Churches in Asia.
Diversity is one strong characteristic within our Churches in Asia.
And it is God’s blessing that we are different from each other.
This diversity within the Asian Churches will help the world of ecumenism to understand how to work together for a better future whilst respecting each other’s differences.
The challenge we have at this present moment is to nurture and equip our churches with a strong faith in God’s salvation work and a compassion for the lost, and at the same time, open ourselves fully to our neighbors and the local communities for the love and grace of our God can be shared with them.
Thank you so much for joining ALS.
It is my sincere prayer that God will continue to work within us during this conferene through His Spirit and bless us and guide us and unite us for His kingdom and His good news.
