The Program was a creative and constructive venue to learn and listen each other and all were inspired by the Kollam Kottarakkara Diocesan Mission Fest and Bible Convention in which thousands of Diocesan people were attended enthusiastically and reputed convention preachers have delivered Word of God in a most powerful and touching way. Furthermore, Missionaries were really enriched by the Morning Meditations as well as Evening Sharing Sessions which was particularly designed for Kerala Regional Missionary Get together. This Program helped each other to build creative relationship among themselves and to share various Missional strategies to each other.
