From November 6-12 a group of six colleagues from Eastern Europe visited Youth for Christ in The Netherlands for a week of leadership training and coaching: Alexander Akimov (Russia), Michel Kornev (Belarus), Arevik Sarukharian (Armenia), Zhenya Fokin (Russia), Andrey Kostchin (Ukraine) and Vitalie Cabaret (Moldova). They were accompanied by Gwenn Ross (Scotland) and Paul Gilmore (Northern Ireland).

They had meetings with colleagues from different ministries (church work, school work, local work, events, Youth Alpha) and talked about different topics such as strategy-building, finances, staff development, etc. On Thursday, they visited two of the local youth centres in Delft and Rotterdam.

It was a blessing to have them this week and hope they were blessed and encouraged also!
