Summary of Asian MK/TCK Planning Forum, Singapore

Asian MK/TCK Planning Forum, SingaporeThe Asian MK/TCK Planning Forum was held in Singapore, September 2-3, 2011, to discuss Asian MK/TCK needs. There were 20 participants at the forum including MK/TCK care personnel representing Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. Seven Asian MKs/TCKs from Korea, Hong Kong, India and Singapore were invited to ensure we were not just talking about Asian MKs/ TCKs, but listening to them.

The representatives clearly identified 3 top priorities for MK care in Asia and working groups were formed to carry these forward:

  1. Preparation for cross-cultural transitions and living
  2. Asian MK/TCK Consultation
  3. Research, Publication & Writing on Asian MKs/TCKs

Conclusion: This Asian MK/TCK Forum is historical in that it was the first time representatives from so many different Asian countries came together to share and discuss Asian MK/TCK issues. There was a strong sense of God’s presence and leading throughout our discussions, and a sense that this is the beginning of something very significant in the care of Asian MKs/TCKs.
