“Imagine my surprise when I heard the announcement that this initiative had been adopted by the Region,” said Aebischer.  “The District’s participation in this manner will serve to make great impact as we deliver the message of the Gospel to cultures whose principle method of communication is by oral means.”

The District has challenged each of its churches to purchase two of the audio players.  At least one of the players had been funded by the end of the convention!

A special thank you to the Canada West District for your partnership in  ministry with the Asia-Pacific Region!
