At CMC West Coast, we will challenge and mobilize Christians to respond to the Great Commission, starting with our living room and ends in places only our imagination will limit us.

First we give all glory to God who planted the vision of PFN within us. On October 2, 2010 we had our 2nd Passion for the Nations – Asian American Missions Conference. There were nearly 700 attendees from 120 different churches and organizations! It feels like God is unifying his people to work together in a greater measure. We were blessed with 3 great plenary speakers alone with 18 different workshops relating to missionary work. It was a successful conference where many people were moved to take action in the next two years. One attendee said afterwards “This conference opened my eyes to God's work around the world! I want to learn more about missions and need to equip myself for my next mission, whether it is increase Bible knowledge, learn how to lead Worship/small groups, have more testimonies, etc. I'll also pray more for the missionaries and offer more towards missions!!!” This was exactly what we wanted– to stir the Asian American community to get deeper involved in global evangelism.
We had a chance to network with many mission organizations and get connected with key leaders in the Asian American community. One unique thing that happened was that many start-up organizations came to exhibit. There were about 7 organizations that were under 3 years old. It shows that God is moving strategically in creating new platforms for young Asian Americans to use their gifts and resources.
One of the most memorable moments for many people was the Concert of Prayer. During that hour, many people fell on their knees on behalf of the nations of the world and cried out for their salvation. It was a powerful time that stirred many to tears. It reminds us of the saying “missions is never without prayer, and prayer is never without missions”.
It is an exciting time we live in when God is doing something special for the Asian American Christians. We see His hand upon us from the start, and we sense His guidance into the future. It has been a crazy ride for the past two years to see PFN planted and taking root in Southern California. I can’t wait to see what fruits it will bear in the next five years. May our Asian American brothers and sisters rise up to the challenge to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ into all the nations!
