On February 7, 2013, Brian Kusunoki had the opportunity to speak as a panel member at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C.
The National Prayer Breakfast is a time when the President of the United States, Members of Congress and other dignitaries gather with leaders from across the country and around the world to focus on the uniting power of faith. At this year's event, Obama expressed the importance of humility and said, "Those of us with the most power and influence must be the most humble."
Brian Kusunoki shared about Hope of the City's work in Hong Kong as part of a seminar titled "God's Cities: Heartbreak and Hope." He presented statistics about poverty in the city and explained how Hope of the City is seeking to bring transformation to the lives of the disenfranchised. The audience asked questions about how to establish a church network that can collectively work towards positive change. Brian also addressed the need for a Christian community center in Sham Shui Po and why Hope of the City would like to establish a physical presence in the "L-Corridor."
