Continuing their east Asia tour in Taipei from Aug. 20-22, United States-based ministry International House of Prayers will hold a worship conference in Hong Kong to reach out to the youth in Hong Kong from Aug. 28-30.

With the theme of "Living Only for God", IHOP One Thing Team will host a three-day conference that will consists of workshops and worship revival meetings. The event will officially kick off with a worship revival gathering on the night of the 28th. Then, the IHOP speaker, Rev. Mike Bickle, will lead a harp and Bowl workshop, sharing with the youth the techniques for worship and prayers. In the afternoons, Pastor Jaeson Ma, Shaukiwan Baptist Church, and the local worship team will collaborate in holding workshops. On both nights, IHOP One Thing Team will hold the revival gathering.

The conference will take place at the Wan Chai Southern Stadium. The host for the event are Shaukiwan Baptist Church, Elim Bookstore, U-Fire, YMCA, Encountering Lord on University Campus, and various others. The targetted audiences are the young adults.

While aiming to reach young adults, Jaeson Ma, a Chinese-American pastor from Los Angeles and the nephew of the former director of the Hong Kong Business and Economic Development Department Frederick Ma, had received much media attention because he led Edison Chan, central character of the celebrity sex photo scandal in Hong Kong, to Christ.

According to sources, Ma used to be a rebellious youth, who took drugs, fought, and stole. However, he ended up being caught and charged. Fortunately, his mother always prayed for him, and at that time he truly repented from his heart. Soon after, his charges was miraculously dropped. After this encounter, Ma decided to offer his life to God, so he returned to school to study theology. He then became a pastor, who is devoting to young adult ministries and prayer and worship ministries. One of his talent is Christian rap songs.

To join the One Thing Conference in Hong Kong, tickets can be picked up at Elim Bookstore, Shaukiwan Baptist Church, or Hong Kong YMCA. The admission is free, and the tickets are given away at a first-come first-serve basis.
