Message instead of conference
Be a beacon of hope!
The world has changed and put us in a completely different situation that we would never have imagined before. Normally we would have held our annual mission conference with up to 500 visitors on Palm Sunday, April 5th. At the subsequent employee conference, we would have cultivated community and exchange with up to 200 participants.
Instead, we had a Palm Sunday evening video conference for employees that was very well attended. We were able to greet each other and pass on encouraging messages. We want to make this message available to you here, so that you too are encouraged!
Jesus is enough! – just now…
The management of the contact mission, in consultation with the international management team, decided to cancel the conference due to the Corona virus and the resulting developments worldwide and in Germany for security reasons and out of consideration for everyone involved. We very much regret the developments and are all the more looking forward to the conference next year!
We see how the virus of fear infects many people. Jesus himself says: “You are afraid in the world; but be confident, I have overcome the world. ” (John 16.33).
Right now it is important that we Christians do not let fear infect us, but carry the hope that Jesus gives us into our environment. Right now we can be a source of hope for people who are caught in fear.
