Equipping Conference #2

SAMSUNG            Typhoon Francisco forced us to cancel day 2 of the PIU Equipping Conference. We were under tropical storm condition 1 most of the day Friday and the storm delayed our speaker’s flight from Australia until Saturday morning. Our speaker, Dr. Alpheus Zubule, arrived on Guam at about 6.30 AM Saturday and SAMSUNG            began his first session at 8.30. Despite the difficulties he looked wide awake and led us through three sessions on doing ministry in a non-western context. The sessions were very interactive and, as Dr. Zubule said, with all the different cultures gathered together in the room it was good to learn from each other.


Mike and Samantha did a great job as the MC’s and Coordinators of the conference. They gave out several door prizes courtesy of our sponsors National Car Rental, Faith Book Store and the Palmridge Hotel.

We closed the sessions on Saturday with a panel discussion with all the conference speakers. Attendees were able to ask pretty much any question they wanted to ask. This led to some lively interaction. This is usually my favorite part of the conference.
