The 2011 Cambodia Consultation is very near – March 31-April 2 – and if you would like to attend but haven't registered yet, it's time to do so!
The consultation is a periodic gathering of friends of the United Methodist mission initiative in Cambodia from throughout the U.S., the purpose of which is education, planning, fellowship, and celebration of Cambodian-American ministries. It is sponsored by the General Board of Global Ministries and the California-Nevada Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church, and will take place this year at Wesley UMC in San Jose, California. 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 firsthand 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.
Wesley UMC is located at 566 N. 5th Street, San Jose, CA 95112. To plan your trip there, visit the church's page on the Conference website and use the handy built-in Google Maps feature.
