“Go Light Our World” (GLOW)
Jakarta, Indonesia | SSD WM | October 21, 2022 | Virginia Baloyo
Hybrid convention held in Jakarta for women to commit to Go and GLOW.
In a hybrid meeting, with 400+ in person and 100+ online, the Adventist women of West Indonesia converged at the MT Haryono Church in Jakarta on August 12 and 13, 2022, many of them WM leaders representing their ten mission/conferences.
After the pandemic has ebbed down, the women were so excited to converge for worship, fellowship, and learn how to reach out their world for Christ. Guest speaker Virgie Baloyo, the SSD WM director shared to the women how to Go Light Our World (GLOW) for Christ naturally - by being fit, focused, and faithful, doing the things they love, and working for Jesus. She also encouraged her radiantly dressed audience, to share the health and gospel truth using the easy to use Healthy and Happy evangelism manual. Dr. Irelyn Gabin, the associate director for Nurture, Discipleship and Reclamation, shared the practical ways the women can light up their world – through their natural caring ways of listening, among others.
The WM Jakarta anklung ensemble of 50 and the JLC singers, clad in colorful batik graced the event with the lofty singing of Jerusalem and popular Indonesian welcome songs. The wonderful Sabbath experience was ably organized by Marliana Tambunan, the WIUM WM director.
