The new year is bringing an exciting change for the Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) Annual Meeting and Missions Celebration! The main meeting will be held on Oahu on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at Olivet Baptist Church and we will have four other meetings on the Neighbor Islands. One will take place on Maui at Kahului Baptist Church Sunday, February 4, 2018. One on Kauai at Ele’ele Baptist Church Monday, February 5, 2018. There will be two on the Big Island of Hawaii. The first is Kona-side at Waikoloa Baptist Church Saturday, February 10, 2018, and the other is Hilo- side at Kino’ole Baptist Church Sunday, February 11, 2018. Airfare scholarships of $100 are available for the meetings. Applications can be made by each church through the HPBC office.
There will be a special guest speaker at the Oahu meeting for the Korean Churches. Fanny Kim, from California, will be leading sessions in Korean.
The keynote speaker at the Oahu, Maui, and Kauai meetings will be our new national WMU Executive Director, Sandra Wisdom-Martin. In addition to more than 25 years of experience in state WMU and church and community ministry, including children’s missions education camps, Wisdom- Martin has served with more than 50 missions groups in nine different countries; served as national coordinator for Mississippi River Ministry; and writes extensively for WMU publications and others.
Another exciting presenter at our Oahu and Maui meeting is renowned WMU author Rosalie Hall Hunt. She is the daughter of missionary parents in China and is herself a retired Baptist missionary. She has taught in Myanmar (formerly Burma), South Asia, Australia, the Philippines, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Hunt will be releasing her newest book, Ann Hasseltine Judson: A Life Beyond Boundaries (Judson Press), here in Hawaii. At the conference, she will share what she learned while researching Ann Judson’s life. The book will be available to purchase at all of the meetings around the islands. She will be available to sign the book at the Oahu and Maui meetings.
For the Maui meeting, during the registration hour, participants have the opportunity for an informal fellowship time with Sandy Wisdom-Martin and Rosalie Hunt with light refreshments. Maui participants will also hear testimonies from former International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries to Russia, Rob and Donna Thommarson.
Kauai participants will be able to fellowship with Sandy Wisdom-Martin the hour before the program begins. IMB Missionaries, Rob and Donna Thommarson, will also be sharing their testimony at this meeting.
The Waikoloa meeting will begin with a fellowship time with former IMB missionary to Cambodia, Adele Inamine. Adele will be the keynote speaker along with two Big Island pastors and a local layperson who will be sharing recent missions experiences.
Kinoole Baptist Church will be the final stop for the WMU Missions Celebration Road Show and will open with an opportunity to fellowship with former IMB missionaries Adele Inamine (Cambodia) and Lizzy McElrath (North Africa). Both women will be sharing their experiences on the mission field.
