In October this year, we held our 12th Annual European Conference in Czech Republic. 72 people from 12 different nations were represented, and is always the case, we had a very special time in the presence of God. This was a time when Pastors and Leaders from different areas of Belarus came together with our Partners in Ukraine, Latvia, Prednestrovia, Germany, Rwanda, Venezuela and India and were able to share what has been happening in their ministries in the past year and encourage and pray for one another. Every morning at 7, we had a message from Stephen David from Hyderabad, India and each morning and evening we had a time of worship, hearing reports from the different nations and teaching from Eugene Smith, a Canadian Bible teacher who now Pastors a church in N. Ireland.
Every year we hear how this Conference has been a big blessing in the lives of those who participate, even among our own group from different parts of Ireland and Isle of Man. There is just something special about intentionally taking time apart to hear from God and the worship in Russian and English and other languages all together seems to be just a taste of what Heaven will be like. Over the years, relationship has been built with each other and now when we come together we truly feel like a big family. People from Belarus support and pray for orphan children in India and Africa, African leaders support and pray for the work that goes on in Prednestrovia, people from Ukraine support orphans in Burkina Faso and have the desire to go and visit them. This is the heart and desire of Drop Inn that the Church will be mobilised, not just rich nations going to the poor, but realising that in the Body of Christ we all have something to offer that will benefit the whole Body and be a blessing among all the Nations for the Glory of God!
