Here is an email from Rev. Mei-Hui Chen Lai (陳美蕙牧師) an Associate for Asian Congregational Support on the staff of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in Louisville. Her work seeks to connect, equip and inspire Asian American Presbyterians in evangelism, mission, and leadership. She is a minister member of Seattle Presbytery, and she has served in the General Assembly offices of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan.

Welcome anyone who concerns about the Asian ministries to join the gathering. Every Asian church please send at least a pastor, an elder, a woman & an young adult leader to attend.

Purpose: Get together to share the church situation, strength or weakness, needs or resources.
