Applications open for ASCM East Timor Mission (July 2014)

In 2012, The Australian Student Christian Movement proposed to replace its national conference with a trip to neighbouring East Timor in order to establish a relationship with East Timor SCM for the purposes of leadership building, cross-cultural exchange and understanding, and the furtherance of regional fellowship.
