My involvement with the Good Shepherd Sisters provided me with the opportunity to be involved in APICA in 2014. This in turn has opened new avenues for a deeper involvement with the mission at the international level.
I was filled with joy and was very touched with the confidence shown by the Asia Pacific Circle of Leaders in selecting me to attend the Congregational Chapter 2015. I also feel very blessed for this opportunity to represent and be a part of the voice for Asia Pacific. I believe that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide me.
The Chapter theme 'Energized by the Spirit, we risk together for mission' resonates as a call in me to transcend local cultural barriers. It is also a call to risk together to move the mission not only domestically but also beyond borders. Through APICA, I have learnt more about co-responsibility and I look forward to strengthening our networking ties at the Chapter next year so that we can be effective mission partners nationally, regionally and internationally.
