Every four years the International Conference of the Wesleyan Church gathers to talk business and policy, to network, to share stories, and to encourage each other regarding how God is moving around the world.
Without getting too nerdy, the ICWC meeting in May will involve hundreds of global leaders for the Wesleyan Church. It’s a time when top leaders meet to pray, worship, share what they’re learning, and talk about ways to welcome God’s Kingdom here, on earth as it is in heaven. Basically, it’s a little piece of heaven but with a little bit of boring business stuff mixed in.
To the best of our knowledge, a Mongolian leader has never attended.
This year, we want to change that.
You can help Naraa, the National Superintendent in Mongolia, take the seat at the table that’s been offered to her.
In order for Naraa and I to attend, we need to raise $6,100 to cover plane tickets, conference fees, hotel costs, and other travel costs.
Full disclosure: I’m going to help with English stuff, to observe the awesomeness of the event, and build a deeper relationship with Naraa so we can work even better together in the future. I doesn’t hurt that the conference is in Barbados. In May. While I will no doubt appreciate the sunshine, warm weather, and beach after a brutal Mongolian winter, I promise I’d be (almost) as excited if it were in Siberia in January.
Here’s How to Help Naraa Take Her Seat at the Table:
This opportunity will cost us about $6,100. There is no way the nation church can afford that. So we’re inviting the global church (you) to empower other women in the global church (Naraa) by covering the cost.
You can give online, by follow this link (it should say “Mongolia” as the designation). In the comments type “Mongolia ICWC expenses.”
Alternately, you can send a check to GP noting the account: “Mongolia NMS (WM05-0180)” and purpose: “Mongolia ICWC expenses.” For more information on how to give by check in Canada or the US, see the bottom of this post.
If you decide to give, please shoot us an email or Facebook message so we can keep this post updated with how much we’ve raised and how much we need. Currently we have raised $1,080/$6,100. (updated 12/08/18)
