Yes, it was a sunny day in Valbonne, France when I recently had a chance to sit down with our team on the Riviera in the company of our team from Dresden. But more than the sunny weather, we enjoyed a sunny outlook as we discussed the variety of ministry opportunities that God has set before Momentum Europe. As we shared our stories with each other there was great encouragement.
A retreat in Germany just wrapped up where many lives were deeply touched. And our France team brought great reports of the growth of the “Wisdom Café” and the number of strategic contacts that keep opening as they meet with influencers from all over Europe. Personally, I had just come from Bucharest, Romania where, in conjunction with a ministry known as Generosity Path, we had conducted a retreat called “Journey of Generosity”. This 24-hour retreat experience was a great encouragement to the 36 participants and will be a tool that we can begin to multiply across Eastern Europe in particular. So, from three different corners of Europe we came together to consider how to move forward in having a greater impact in the lives of more and more influential Europeans. No doubt that in the months ahead you’ll be hearing more about opportunities such as “Ignite”, “Momentum Europe Ambassadors” and among other things, expanding our partnerships with CRU ministries in places like Poland, Ukraine and Hungary.
As you might glean from this brief report, it was a very meaningful two days together in Valbonne. It’s an exciting time to be invested in what God is doing in Europe!
