Kupang, Indonesia. Life moves on so fast and eventually brought us to the peak days of encounter, the AEYG 2019 + CF (Ascla East Youth Gathering 2019 + Claretian Family). At beautiful hill of Dare – Timor Leste from August 5 – 11, 2019, the dream of solidarity is weaved. It is the solidarity of Christ that impels the young men and women from different part of Asian countries where the Claretian Missionaries present to come and form an inclusive community while learning how to be in solidarity with the co-travellers.

As fellow travellers with others, entering into the web of relationship is a sine qua non fact of our daily pilgrimage. This encounter creates a sense of solidarity with one another. At the heart of this solidarity is the experience of oneness, we are brothers and sisters on this our common home.

On August 4, 2019 the participants are coming. They are from the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Rome. Some of them take a direct flight to Dili – Timor Leste, while others they pass through Kupang and proceed to Atambua the border of Indonesia and Timor Leste. Mission and its concern make us one, the Claretian family.

The Claretian Missionaries of Independent Delegation of Indonesia-Timor Leste as the host countries of this international encounter thanked the ASCLA EAST Conference for this privilege moment where all young men and women can meet together and learn how to involve themselves in the project of telling the story of the Master. Hope at the end of this gathering they are formed and transformed to join hand in hand in solidarity with others along their journey in giving reason of their hope. (pfm).
