Thank You very much for publising this article in your blog. I happen to be one of the members of the organising committee for the congress. We pray that God will render us the two fold success for this congress. As this is the first International Congress organised by the Catholic Church in Malaysia or in Sarawak, we pray for God’s might grace and abundant blessing. We pray for a two fold success, the short term and long term success. The short term success is for the smooth and orderly flow of even at the Congress itself. The second success is the long term impact the congress will have in the delegates so that they will be transformed by the word of God. The delegates will, in their turn will bring transformation to more and more until the whole world will be open to the truth which is shared in the congress. Please God
