This year (2022) has been a year of great blessing for coordinators all across the Sword of the Spirit who had their Regional Coordinators Conference. The Asian region had their retreat from the 22nd to the 25th of September in the Philippines. There were 200 coordinators from the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Singapore, 7 brothers from Africa and even some guests from other regions of the Sword of the Spirit. Truly a very blessed international event.

It began with the Power from on High Retreat in which the brothers were empowered to receive and use the gifts of the Holy Spirit more openly. Three brothers who had attended the coordinators retreat in the Europe & Middle East region, gave the talks and led the prayer times together with the guidance of our International President, Jean Barbara.

Then there was a presentation of the three Strategic Priorities for the Sword of the Spirit in the coming years: Being renewed in our charismatic spirituality, Living fully our ecumenical call and Widening our tent pegs.

There was plenty of time to Worship the Lord together with anointed leadership and music. There was also a lot of fellowship time which was strongly needed after 2 years of not seeing one another because of the pandemic.

One of the highlights of the event was the signing of the Covenant of the Holy Trinity Community, from Davao City, Philippines, who has completed their formation as a community and are a Full Member Community of the Sword of the Spirit.

This conference completes the third of all four regions to have their Regional Coordinators Conference. The next one will take place in a few months in North America. Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to continue to move in our midst.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!
