In an extraordinary example of everywhere-to-everywhere mission, Serah Wambua, one of the founding leaders of CMS-Africa and Wayne Wong, a team leader with OMF who moved to Kenya in 2014, are in the early stages of a joint strategy to help the African Church grasp the opportunity to share the gospel with the ever-growing Chinese population on their doorstep.

Dear Partners in the Gospel
AsiaCMS sends you our warm greetings and we invite you to join us in thanking God because “a great door for effective work has opened up for us” (1 Corinthians 16:9). That great door in Asia is the raising of 26 Asian mission leaders, the setting up of training alliances in Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bhutan and Malaysia whereby over 500-800 Asian leaders have been trained during the past year.
AsiaCMS has been spreading its wings throughout Asia. Listen to stories of how our co-mission partners have been making disciples of the nations and sharing the love of Christ.

It has been said that where mission work is concerned, the calling is divine but the relationship is very human. By extension, mission training should be a good blend of the core principles of theology and the practicalities of everyday life.
It is on this premise that Asia Gateway Training (AGT) kicked off its seven-week residential programme on cross-cultural mission training at Seminari Theologi Malaysia in Seremban on June 21.
Relationship was one word that resonated at a seminar on collaboration in mission which was organised by AsiaCMS recently. And that truly captured the spirit of a presentation by Rev Canon Mark Oxbrow, the International Director of Faith2Share, UK.
He said lasting success in collaborative missions hinged on putting the focus on building relationships of trust.
The scenes of devastation, agony and despair in Nepal are fast disappearing from the pages of newspapers and television screens. But make no mistake – the needs of Nepal remain pressing today, more than a month after the country was ravaged by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake.
Thank God that millions of dollars in aid and countless hours of relief work by volunteers have poured into the country since then. But getting enough funds to deliver aid to the victims is still a huge challenge.
