ABWU Conference 2018

“Created, Transformed and Empowered to Reach Out”
29 August – 1 September 2018 @ Georgetown Baptist Church, Penang (Malaysia)
“710 delegates from 19 countries gathered joyfully for all teaching sessions and the 60th Anniversary Dinner at the Gurney Resort Hotel. 20 Singapore delegates were represented by 7 Baptist Churches, and many were first-timers.
The delegates representing Singapore presented a song (“It’s A Wonderful Life”) which was sung at the Billy Graham Rally in 1978. The zeal and joyful spirit at the Assembly was simply contagious. Powerful theme song and sharing spoke to the hearts. The faithfulness of many old guards conveyed a strong legacy of ABWU.
In the midst of celebration during the opening ceremony night, we mourned in sadness with Mrs Lalrinzuali from Mizoram Baptist Church, India for losing her 22 year-old second eldest son to a severe asthmatic attack. She courageously stayed on in spite of the pain and agony, dancing with her home team on the stage. The funeral took place at her home the following day.
We hope to see a greater participation in 2023 at Myanmar.”
