Off to London :) !

It’s Wednesday October 1, 7:00am and I’m sitting in Taoyuan Int’l Airport, Taipei awaiting my EVA Airlines flight to London Heathrow via Bangkok…..

The first day of my 7 months home leave ~ YES!

Sad to say goodbye to Taiwan and all my wonderful friends ~ but happy to be off to the UK and reconnect with all my CMS Link Churches, friends and family…. see y’all soon!

Asia CMS is well and truly launched ~ YES YES YES!

Malaysia Truly Asia ~ YES!  Happens to be the location of our newly launched Asia CMS office and home base…. and what a great choice eh?  Blue skies, sun, sea, smiles and so much more ~ YES YES YES!

Off we all went to celebrate this long-awaited great event with a very magnificent and rather amazing Launch Dinner last Saturday in Kuala Lumpur….. (For the official and highly-recommended CMS version of what really happened at the Launch Dinner, click here…)

Then followed 4 fun days down on the coast in Port Dickson for a big CMS gathering at the beautiful new Methodist Centre….

Oh yes and mustn’t forget the few hours of sightseeing on arrival ~ to the KL Tower on Friday afternoon, and the 2 cathedrals on the Saturday morning…. So happy!

Laughed and laughed all week with /at (yep I admit it, it was mostly ‘at’!) lots of old friends, made lots of lovely new friends and drank a ton of coffee with condensed milk…

Bearing in mind that this was all happening while Malaysia and the rest of the world’s been facing the growing crisis of the missing Malaysian Airlines plane MH 370~ perhaps a poignant reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of the message we seek to proclaim….

And so to the big event itself ~ and in case you’re wondering, we were encouraged to wear the national dress of our home or adopted country ~ hence the wonderful outfits on display…. Just forget the boring old UK, with its total lack of national dress and imagination ha ha! Instead concentrate on the variety of beautiful outfits and even more beautiful people who were there….

Enjoy the small (well, only 8o+, out of a possible 1,000 or more!) selection of photos below, roughly in chronological order….

Smiles, smiles, smiles – lots of happy people!

Please pray, support and seek to get involved in Asia CMS ~ it’s the happening place to be!
