Members from five countries in SEA region gathered together and offered the opening service. Minister Helen shared the message to encourage members to become the watchmen in every country and to seek revival through prayers. "The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. We need to have the faith that we are the righteous person because of the salvation through Jesus Christ. We are so precious in God's sight and He gives us the power to change the world through His Truth and the Holy Spirit." 

One member shared that "I need to have stronger faith in God and know my position before God. I should rise up for this country. God needs my prayers and value them preciously. Hope I can pray more and have a closer relationship with God."

May God bless this retreat and bles everyone to have a graceful time together.
