In Mission-Net it is all about team work! Not only because we believe that it is the model of Jesus, but also because we could never work on Mission-Net on our own!
With Mission-Net we want to play our part in building God´s Kingdom in Europe and beyond. That includes various denominations, young and old, mission agencies and missional networks, every Christian in Europe!
Meeting our Ukrainian motivator Dasha
It was wonderful meeting Dasha last week. She works with IFES in Ukraine and helps to run various English clubs.
We were praying for Ukraine to find some key contacts, and Dasha appeared!
We thank God for her and also for Anya from Kiev, who have decided to partner to mobilise Ukrainians to come to the next congress.
Since the start of Mission-Net we tried to make contacts in Slovenia but were not successful. Suddenly God stirred hearts!
Diana, a young lady preparing for mission service in Asia, felt called to serve as the first contact person. She got in touch with Nives (right person on picture) and for Nives one of her dreams came true.
For many months now I have been thinking a lot about the Kingdom of God. How does it look like? How does it look like for me personally and for us in Europe and beyond?
With Mission-Net we love to encourage all of us to become radical followers of Christ, be his Kingdom bearers and make a difference in living a missional lifestyle wherever God places each of us locally and globally. And that he does so, we hear from many of you!
At the German Kirchentag last week, I had the huge privilege of having coffee with two of the Taize leaders, Frere Georg and Frere Richard.
Taize will have their European youth congress over new year very close to us in Strassbourg, France. They also connect to churches in Offenburg as the various churches in the area are asked to host these thousands of young people. Now what to do?
Yesterday, Niklas and I sat together once more to finalise where to place what at the site of the Messe Offenburg to be as best prepared for the next congress.
We will have a few halls for sleeping, but again it will be very basic. So bring good sleeping matresses if you are staying with us on site. 2 neighbouring schools for accommodation are 10 min walking distance away.
We are so excited to tell you that finally the online registration is open:
It took us several months to upgrade our registration databank and comply to the national tax regulations. Thanks to a very committed team who worked extremely hard over the last weeks and months and some wonderful translators as well, we are open now.
The early bird deal lasts until 15 October. Register and invite a friend!
