My seminary classmate Jacob George is married to Susan. In 2006, Jacob invited me to do the Bible expositions for the 25th anniversary of national Bible translation efforts under the banner Word For All. International visitors from Wycliffe Bible Translators were present.
Darryl Kernick was one of them. He really liked my expository preaching and when Wycliffe International was organizing an international conference that is held once in about four years, he pressed for me to be invited to it.
The conference was held from May 1st to 8th in the Empress Hotel, in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
