Connecting with God and One Another

We finally held our first-ever ServeBeyond retreat in Asia!

After postponing for two years due to covid, we were able to gather Oct. 10-14 in Pattaya Thailand at the Pinnacle Grand Jomtien Resort for networking, encouragement, and relaxation. The majority of the eleven missionaries and mission leaders from Canada, Japan and Thailand who were able to attend (about half our number) had rarely if ever met in-person.

We connected with God by learning about Jesus’ post-resurrection Great Commission teachings. We also shared with one another about our lives and ministries, and prayed for each other.

Wrapped around the theme of connecting, the retreat was higher on relationships than meetings. So there were plenty of laughs and our relationship building flowed over into fun times!

The smiles were punctuated by some serious moments as we learned and shared together. There were even a few tears.

Who knows? Maybe we’ll just have to do it again!
