The representatives of YEF Asia Pacific returned safely on the 13th after meeting with leaders of various evangelical camps at the 2019 World Evangelical Alliance Genereal Aseembly held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 7th to 13th.
The WEA General Assembly is a conference where evangelical leadership from around the world gathers to develop strageties, plans and networks to prepare for the next generation of Christian discipliship for 2020 to 2030.
It was significant that this holy gathering was held in Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest economic and Musilim country. The opening of youth missions in Indonesia, a strategically important country as a bridehead for Southeast Asia and Muslim missions, can open the great door to Muslim youth mission.
The leaders shared their vision of youth mission not only with domestic ministers, but also WEA staff from Southeast Asian countries, leaders in various fields, including Chrisitian education and the legal progession.
YEF Asia Pacific shared their grace with saying, "During the General Assembly schedule, we prayed with the prayer team where the Indonesian church members have prayed for GA 24 hours for two years and their enthusiasm and eartnestness were a great challenge to us. We realized that God had led our steps here because of their prayers. In keeping with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we hope to expand the scope of youth mission in Southeast Asia."
"It was a time to learn a lot and be challenged by meeting passionate evangelicals. We were grateful for the idea of incorporating their strategies into our ministry by looking at the models of churches that are rapidly growing the leaders of next generation. We found out that God has placed so much hope and infinite possiblities for the world mission in Southeast Asia. We hope YEF Asia Pacific deligently sows seeds of tears in the precious land and the nations" they added.
