Малахии (3:17-18): “... И они будут Моими, говорит Господь Саваоф, собственностью Моею в тот день, который Я соделаю, и буду миловать их, как милует человек сына своего, служащего ему. И тогда вы снова увидите различие... между служащим Богу и не служащим

Report of ICCC Asian Regional Conference, Bangkok, Thailand (29 March – 1 April, 2012)

It is my pleasure to report that we had an excellent Asian regional conference in Bangkok. We had not had a regional conference in Asia for three years, so this was a very much needed conference to pull the members together to encourage them. In my opinion, the conference was a top-notch conference by all standards: Facilities, logistics, Spirit and messages were all excellent. We had about 80 conference delegates from around Asia: Thailand, Australia, Indonesia, Korea, China, Kuwait, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Singapore, Malaysia, etc.

The conference theme was “Rise Up, Man of Valour” inspired from Judges 6. This conference was birthed by Anton Hemantha over a long period of time and facilitated through the outstanding work of Tim Ghinn. In the conference we were three from the International Board: Grahame, Ntiense and I. Visiting speakers were Ron Sawka from Japan and Annie Dieselberg from Bangkok. Ron is a pastor and his message was focused on the prophetic and apostolic anointing. His focus on personal ministry was especially needed and encouraging.

Annie Dieselberg shared a message about human trafficking and sex tourism in Thailand. She is a powerful lady who helps prostitute women out of the streets by offering them work and by ministering to them. This message had a strong impact on the conference delegates and moved the delegates to especially seek the Lord on how to take future initiatives in this needed area. The sex industry is very tangible in Thailand and the lack of jobs in the rural areas of Thailand is a driving force for feeding human trafficking around the sex industry. It was discussed in the conference with Anton Hemantha, ICCC Regional Director, and Tim Ghinn, living in Thailand, if God wants to use ICCC to impact the situation. We must be alert to hear what God is saying to us as could even become a regional project for ICCC Asia.

Although it may seem on paper as if our messages were mixed, there was a strong presence of the Lord throughout the conference, and in the end everything seemed to fall in line extremely well and complement each other. The feedback we received from the participants in the conference was very encouraging. God had touched their hearts, and many had had a personal encounter with the Lord, where God had spoken to them during the conference. The idea of three sub-regional conferences was birthed during the conference and was warmly received by the participants.

These three sub-regional conferences are being planned for September, around our strongest groups in the region. A sub-regional conference will be convened in Sri Lanka to gather our members from India, Pakistan, Nepal, etc. A second sub-regional conference will be focusing on South-East Asia and hosted by ICCC Indonesia, covering Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc. The third sub-regional conference hosted by ICCC Australia will focus on Oceania, covering New Zealand, and the South Pacific island nations. International delegates from the ICCC worldwide membership are warmly invited, and it was desired that at least one member of the International Board would be available for participation to support the development. It is an investment, but we believe we are seeing the beginning of a real momentum building in the Asian region, and we should support that.

I should not forget to mention the opening night of the Conference. Our contact person in Bangkok, Mr Vanchai, had invited the Prime Minister to the opening night. She didn’t come, but we were graced with the presence of a few high ranking officers. The highest ranking person was the Chairman of the Board of Trade of Thailand (Mr Vichien Tejapaibul). We felt that the representation for the opening night was very suitable for the occasion. All in all there were about 120 people present in the opening night.

Our contact person in Bangkok, Mr Vanchai, and his wife Suthinee, is a great couple with whom we are looking forward to be working intimately with in the future. We praise the Lord for this wonderful Thai couple who is a real asset for ICCC in Thailand.

Mr. Vanchai is a successful businessman and well connected in Thai business circles – all the way up to the government. He had generously used his personal financial resources and networks to market the conference and he carries a bold testimony of his faith in the Lord together with his wife. Mr Vanchai had put several advertisements in the leading newspapers (Bangkok Post) and did also participate generously to cover some conference expenses. For this we wish to express our appreciation and gratitude. A chamber is not yet established in Thailand, but Thai people are invited into membership in ICCC through the international office. Tim Ghinn and Anton Hemantha will follow the progress with the target of getting an ICCC Chamber established in the near future.

Finally, I must mention a Korean lady who came to the conference (there were three Koreans in the conference). She had found Gunnar’s book, which is printed in the Korean language, in a library. After reading the book she was so impacted that she begun to search the Internet to find out more about ICCC. As she learned that ICCC was inviting to an Asian conference, she registered and came to the conference. She returned home very enthusiastic about the conference, and with a hope to gather an ICCC core group in Korea. Our regional leader Anton Hemantha will continue to mentor the process in Korea.

To summarise, we can report that there is lot of enthusiasm in the region, but the region is still fragile. Let us support our regional leader Anton Hemantha in prayer as he labours to turn this enthusiasm to working chambers. The Asian region is vast and our members are scattered around the region.

Your brother in Christ,

Saku Pitkanen, ICCC Executive VP

Report from the ICCC Leadership workshop in Tallinn, Estonia (14-15 April, 2012)

My first impression at the workshop in Tallin, Estonia, was that it was to too small as we had directed our invitation mostly to ICCC Presidents from the Region. This, however, turned out to be a plus factor. It was easy to train, mentor and to build warm relations because of this.

We have reason to give thanks to the Lord. The atmosphere was great and the message was appreciated. The outcome of this event was far beyond expectations. We now also see the fruit from the work with strategies underway in Norway, Denmark and Estonia. It was evident that we witnessed a new beginning.

ICCC Estonia will now take new steps lead by our Estonian brother Marek Jallai, Civil Engineer. Among the tools to use is Gunnar’s book “Business Unlimited” both in the Estonian and Russian languages.

Fleming Petterson, ICCC President, Denmark, and his wife, also attended the workshop. They are reporting of regular monthly meetings in Copenhagen, as well as from the group which has been formed in Jylland, Western Denmark.

The ICCC President, Enok Hansen, from Norway, brought strong encouragement to the group meeting in Tallin. Among the things in his report he introduced the plans for a national ICCC Conference in Norway this autumn.

ICCC Sweden was represented by Mr. Bengt Palmquist, who reported on the encouraging developments in ICCC Sweden, among which the “ICCC Young Professionals” is paramount. This working group was spontaneously formed within ICCC Sweden at the memorial service after the late ICCC President for Sweden, Dag Wilund. They are representing a young vibrant generation, recruited from the age group of 20-35 years, who are now embracing the ICCC vision of a “people in the marketplace whose strategies and plans become an outward manifestation of an inward walk of faith”.

Prayer was offered for “African Power and Water AB”, a company owned by ICCC members in Sweden, who have entered into a contractual agreement with the Ministry of Energy in the Republic of Burundi to build a hydro power plant in Burundi for production of electricity.

In the report from Finland, Fredrik Ekholm indicated that he was planning to hand over his leadership role after having served as ICCC President in Finland for more than 19 years. (Since the Tallin Conference brother Jouni Suonpää has been elected President for ICCC Finland. Fredrik Ekholm remains a board member). The strategic guideline has been to train others, and to encourage the next generation to shoulder the responsibility of leadership in order for ICCC to fulfill its high calling with an even greater effectiveness and spiritual sharpness. For this to happen we must understand the importance working in unity, and in unity foster future plans.

I am grateful for the support in the leadership from Saku Pitkanen, ICCC Executive Vice President and Grahame Scofield, ICCC Vice President.

ICCC Update February 2012

Dear Friends
NOW is a brilliant time to buy ICCC resources!
If you've looked at our international website recently you may have noticed that the price of all DVD resources have reduced by around half.  So, CLICK HERE and start buying!  Let's get these valuable resources off the shelf and into people's homes and businesses where they can bear fruit for God's kingdom.  Act now!

Transformed Working Life promotional video and more
I was asked yesterday if there is a TWL promotional video.  Yes there is and you can view it on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkD1TRnCbAY).  It lasts about 5 minutes and includes some testimonies and teaching clips.  It is an ideal promotional tool for anyone wanting to know more about TWL - just send them the link.
Also, have a look at a presentation by Os Hillman (www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM7JmXdgTOI) in which he gives a brilliant four minute explanation of God's call to work.  You can also view Gunnar’s story about the plastic bags on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEfwCd4WL6A).  If you have anyone enquiring about ICCC and/or TWL teaching then send them these links as well.
Transformed Working Life - translating and dubbing into other languages - pray and donate
The Brazilian chamber is dubbing the DVDs into Portuguese. Half of the money is still needed to complete the work but they are pressing on in faith that the DVDs will be ready for our Autumn America Regional Conference.  Having TWL in both Spanish and Portuguese means we can cover South and Central America and much of the USA.
We are still trying to raise the finances to dub TWL into French.  Until this happens then much of Africa does not have TWL in a language they can understand which is a great pity as this is desperately needed in this continent.  Our Swiss chamber is willing to undertake this work once the finances are available.
Many people have already generously donated to this work.  However, can I ask that we all consider donating so that the work can be completed and TWL can be an increasing blessing in the world.  If you do decide to donate then please send whatever is in your heart to the International Office specifically stating that it is for TWL dubbing.   Please also pray that any obstacles preventing this project from being completed would be moved out of the way.
European Teachers Meeting - Lahti, Finland – May 31 – June 3, 2012
If you live in the European region you should have received an announcement last week about the above meeting which contained a survey link.  So far, I have had a response from my wife!  If you have received an invitation, it would greatly help in planning if you completed the survey this weekend by clicking on: www.surveymonkey.com/s/YNXJVZR.  A detailed invitation including prices etc will be sent out shortly.
With every blessing and have a great weekend.

INDIA - The poorest of the poor in India's most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, are at the heart of a major food scandal which the Indian media has described as "the mother of all scams".

ALGERIA - It all began in 1981 with a 21-year-old boy from a poor family and a game of soccer. On the field, the young man befriended Arab visitors from a church in Algiers. It was the first time he experienced what he later recognized to be a "Christ-like" example, and the first time he heard the Gospel.

MIDDDLE EAST - Will the new freedoms include the Christians? Johnson says "I think the Christian community needs to be prepared to respond regardless of which way it goes, because I think the cry for freedom that we're seeing right now in the Middle East is also, in some cases, a cry for spiritual freedom." Security issues prevent Johnson from sharing the details, but they've already been working to create Scripture access creatively in many of these areas in the Middle East and North Africa.

USA - The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and President Obama are indicating they will no longer defend a key component of the federal Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA). Passed by Congress in 1996, DOMA defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman for purposes of all federal laws, and provides that states need not recognize a marriage from another state if it is between persons of the same sex. Attorney General Eric Holder said Obama instructed that the defence of DOMA should be withdrawn in two pending cases.
"It is unfortunate that I have been placed in a situation not seen in most other high school sports" the teen added. Jamie Northrup, the boy's father, is a Pentecostal minister. He said the family knew ahead of time who his son would be wrestling and left the decision up to him. "There's no scriptures that address this and nothing doctrinal," the elder Northrup said. "This is a principled decision. Joel believes that girls should be treated with dignity and respect-taking nothing away from those two female athletes - but wrestling is a combat sport," he explained.

CHINA - The world's largest Bible printing facility, Amity Printing Company, has a facility in Nanjing, prompting some to dub the historic eastern Chinese city the Bible printing capital of the world. In 2007, Amity printed 6 million Bibles, but today has the potential to print up to 12 million per year or 23 Bibles every minute.

BRAZIL- Evangelicals are expected to reach 57.4 million in Brazil this year with that figure growing at an annual growth rate of 7.42%.
