Description: The transformation of the Diocese of Singapore from simply maintaining the Anglican ministry in that Island-Nation to planting and developing future dioceses in six surrounding countries is a story that can inspire Anglican dioceses and parishes in North America. The REC welcomes Canon Yee Ching Wah, Singapore Director of Missions and veteran missionary to Thailand, and Archdeacon Wong Tak Meng, former Dean of the Mission Deanery of Cambodia, who will tell their story. REC current and former missionaries and short-termers will be present.
