D. INVITATION LETTERS * OTHER DOCUMENTS 

 

Those who are joining the conference coming from countries that are required to secure an entry visa to visit Malaysia and Singapore, may request for an official letter of invitation from our office. The document will be sent online. We just need to get the email address of the person requesting the document. Kathy Merencillo will assist you on the matter.


A set of travel documents, certifications, documentary proof of the conference event in Malaysia, etc. will be sent to all conference participants. We advise that each document be printed out or saved on your mobile phone folders to ensure that you have them in your possession at all times. You must have it ready when demanded by the immigration officers and use it as a reference guide on your stay in Malaysia and Singapore . Each set of document will be explained during your Pre departure briefings.



E. LANGUAGE TRANSLATION SERVICES 

 

1. Language: We will provide English translations of Tagalog (Filipino) messages. Vietnamese, Chinese and Bahasa (Indonesia & Malaysia) translations of Tagalog/ English messages will depend entirely on the availability of translators.

The translators will only be able to provide the gist, or the substance /essence of the message being conveyed and not a word for word translation. The translators will not be standing up on the stage with the speakers. They will be at the back row portion of the hall and will speak thru a wireless translation equipment to talk to the non- Tagalog/Filipino participants.


2. Translators: We have a team of missionaries who are assigned to take turns in providing the translation service. The lead translator is: Jules Ostan . He will be assisted by the following: Hannah Deborah Abuan,  Dr. Tony Mendoza, Dr. John Duong , Sis Ana Tuquero, Ning Insauriga,  Dr. John Duong will handle the translation needs of the Vietnamese participants. Sis Ning Insauriga will oversee the translation services for Bahasa speaking participants.


3. Designated Area: The last row at the back will seat all foreign nationals who will need translation service, since it will be the closest to the translator and will offer less audio signal distortion. Headphones and receiving devices will be entrusted to each one and must be returned immediately to the translator after use. Our wireless transmitters are limited and we can only serve 30 individuals at a time.


4. Wireless Equipment: A wireless headset will be provided per individual. Our wireless equipment setup can serve only 30 individuals at a time. Please look for Kathy Merencillo or Jerald Sinsay if you know anyone who would be needing this service, please inform and assist them to the designated staff.



F. ACCOMODATIONS IN MALAYSIA

 

Conference participants are responsible for their own lodging. For this conference we could choose our own accommodation based on our budget and preference. We have also requested our Malaysia team to look around for possible free hosting accommodations to help those who are financially challenged. As soon as we get confirmation from them, we will inform all of you right away. Those who have church networks here in Malaysia are requested to help others with their accommodation needs.  Our office staff will be coordinating with your GMC leaders as soon as they receive news or accommodation status updates .


There are a good number of hotels in the KL area that are reasonably priced. There are literally hundreds of lodging options available for you to choose from ranging from backpackers type of accommodation to starred hotels. A big number of missionaries who took their Access 2 in KL last year are somewhat familiar already with good and budget friendly accommodation options. Always consider the location of the conference before you finalize your hotel booking. If you choose a hotel because of its cheap price but is more than an hour’s travel to the conference venue, then you’ll probably wind up spending more and be more stressed.


There are budget hotels that offer dormitory style rooms (6 beds per room) that offer better priced accommodations and are ideally located to places you will be visiting including the conference venue. If you are coming as a group, this could be a really good cheap option. Booking sites that offer backpackers and dormitory style rooms will appear when you inquire from Google “Dormitory style accommodations in Kuala Lumpur” Hostelworld.com is the preferred booking site for budget, backpackers, dorm type style accommodations. If you prefer to stay in private rooms, there are hundreds of hotels available to choose from in booking sites like Agoda.com or Booking.com with a wide range of prices depending on the category of the hotel.


You may want to check first in the map the proximity of the hotel to our actual conference venue. We advise that you evaluate each hotel at their respective websites before you make your decision. Go to Google and simply type the name of the hotel and you will be directed to their sites. Room bookings can be done online directly at their websites or at hotel booking sites like Booking.Com, Agoda.Com, TripAdvisor.com, Hostelworld.com, etc …

 

If you still have a difficult time locating a place to stay in during the conference, you may join your GMC group that will be assisted by our office team. We are still trying to identify rented (AirBnb) apartments or homes where we could have groups stay in the same place. Our Malaysia team is still on the lookout for additional church and dormitory options.

 

We will still provide accommodation updates on our next Info Pack.
