A letter of invitation
Dear UBF co-workers,
(2016 World Mission Report/Missionaries and Shepherds Conference)
"You will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." (Exodus 19:6a)
Thank God for making us a kingdom of priests and a holy nation over the last 55 years, enabling us to feed campuses across the world with the Word of God. Praise God for using our missionaries and native shepherds for this precious ministry. We have been holding World Mission Reports (WMR) and Missionaries/Shepherds Conferences every five years, together with our mission co-workers, giving thanks to God and glorifying Him for his wonderful work of salvation all over the world.
This year, the 2016 WMR will be held at JangChoong Gymnasium, in Seoul, onJune 5 (Sunday). Dr. Abraham Kim, the UBF General Director, will deliver the main message, while national shepherds from different continents will share 5 mission reports. As part of the program, there will also be joyful and graceful cultural performances. We hope to present and rediscover our spiritual identity and our future direction through the main message. We pray to share God's ministry and give praise to Him through the mission reports and life testimonies. We will also use this opportunity to pray together for God to continually use us for the world mission task.
From the evening of June 5 (Sunday) to June 8 (Wednesday), there will be a Missionaries ad Shepherds Conference at La-vie-dor Resort in Hwasung, Gyeonggi Province. Through studying Deuteronomy, we pray to learn God's hope and vision for us, renew our calling as Bible teachers, and shepherds, and form a strong vessel of the Holy Spirit through the fellowship between missionaries, national shepherds, and Korean co-workers.
I cordially invite our missionaries and national shepherds to this meeting. May God continue to use us as a kingdom of priests and a holy nation for his world mission purpose.
