The Girls’ Brigade National Officer Retreat cum 57th Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Friday, 6 June 2014

Another great year and we meet again in Ipoh, Perak for The Girls’ Brigade National Officer Retreat (NOR) cum 57th AGM, from 6 – 8 June 2014. There were about 100 officers attended the retreat and Sarawak once again makes the largest participation.

There were 25 of us from Kuching and 4 from 1st Kuching.

We started the event with Welcoming Message by Mdm Goh, sharing on “How can GB Officers be a Channel for Girls?” and followed by a discussion session on matters arising in Malaysia GB ministry. We also had sharing from officers attended the Asia Fellowship AGM in Singapore in May.


The 57th Annual General Meeting was held the next day on 7th June after breakfast. We had election of the Office Bearers for 2014 – 2016 and Praise the Lord that everything went smoothly throughout the AGM. The event continued with the celebration of 55th Anniversary of 1st Ipoh Company. The theme for celebration was “God Forever Faithful, Psalm 146:6”.

On the next day, we had Sunday Service conducted by our National Chaplain, Bishop Ong Hwai Teck and that also concluded our event in Ipoh. Although the retreat was short, it was a great fellowship and gathering of officers from around Malaysia. From this retreat, we learned that the work of God at times are rewarding and at times it is frustrating, but God never leave us alone and He is always there guiding us.
