Wives and Ministers Gathered in Vancouver, Canada
A gathering of ministers and their wives was held in Vancouver over dinner on January 15 2018. It was hosted by Rev. and Mrs. Abraham Chiu. Rev. Chiu was the past President of the CBF while Mrs. Chiu is co-head of the Ministry to Wives of Ministers Support Group. The purpose of the gathering was to promote the 20th Biennial Conference, to pull together Chinese Baptist pastors from the different churches and to promote the Ministry to Wives of Ministers. At the meeting Pastor Abraham shared about his ministry experience at Crosspoint Church in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The group of 14 had a great time connecting one with another, getting to know each other better and encouraging one another. Deacon Jady Lo, a member of the Executive Committee of the CBF also attended. At the end of the evening, it was everyone’s hope that more of such opportunity be had more often.
The wives, in the meantime, look forward to a gathering just for them at the 20th Biennial Conference on board the cruise ship “Carnival Inspiration” sailing from Long Beach California to Ensenada Mexico from September 24-28 2018. Many have indicated their interest in attending.
