The Asia-Pacific Region gathered on 28 April 2024 for the third year of the Love for Missions celebration, which was held via Zoom. Since 2022, the regional Nazarene Missions International has continuously connected Nazarene missionaries to local churches and districts. It is the regional team's way of letting the missionaries know others are on the journey with them and that they are not alone in the field.

Missionaries were assigned by Global NMI to partner with the Asia-Pacific Region through the Links program. Links is a network of personal connections between missionaries and Nazarene districts worldwide. Participating missionaries are assigned to districts to help foster a personal connection with a local church.

Six missionary couples from various regions were introduced to their host region at the event: Errol and Rhonda Carrim (Africa), Miguel and Irene Garita (Costa Rica), Esteban and Dhariana Murillo (Panama), Tim and Michelle Eby (Africa), Pablo and Viviana Tello (Paraguay), and Joe and Amy Hall (USA/Canada).

David and Rhonda Ackerman led an engaging discussion with the Links missionaries through a question-and-answer session. The participants spent significant time getting to know them as they introduced themselves, their family life, and the kind of work they do, describing their call to missions and how it was confirmed. They also shared their current ministries and prayer requests.

Links Coordinator Debra Voelker welcomed the missionaries alongside David Hane, the Asia-Pacific regional personnel coordinator. Regional Director Mark Louw expressed his warm welcome and assured the missionaries that the Asia-Pacific Region loves them. Regional Missions Mobilization Coordinator Marcio Batista encouraged the participants to learn more about missions.

The Asia-Pacific Region aims to connect the local churches to missionaries in order to create awareness of the vast need to reach the unreached people groups, the lost, the last, and the least.
