IBCM6

ibcm6-logoThe sixth International Brethren Conference on Missions (IBCM6) was June 22-26 in Rome, Italy. It is an event held every four years and this year there were 700 participants from more than 100 countries. For me it has been an experience that has touched me deeply and the lessons and memories will stay in my heart. My personal journal, notes from the conference and many pictures will help my memory to continue enjoying the taste of the exposure I had to the wonderful strong bond of the Holy Spirit making one church, one body from every nation, tribe and tongue with one mind and purpose, in sweet fellowship and singing praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; like someone pointed out, a preview of heaven on earth.

Of course, to have sweet fellowship with 700 brothers and sisters with different languages, cultures and traditions for one week it’s possible. I am sure if we would have to stay longer it would need some effort and much love to keep the sweetness in the atmosphere. In any case, people was the highlight of the event. I don’t want to forget the testimonies I heard about my brothers and sisters suffering and giving their lives for their faith in the Lord Jesus; which makes my silly complains about some minor details in life, like delayed flights, tasteless food, too much traffic, music preference, look at them for what they really are, irrelevant and insignificant.

Here are my Facebook albums for IBCM6 and Sightseeing in Rome.
