The DIAKONIA Region Africa Europe (DRAE) Assembly has gathered in Kongshaug, Bergen. With more than 140 delegates from the UK, Scandinavia, Europe and Africa, this is a wonderful time for renewing friendships and making new connections, for sharing stories, engaging in learning, and for building community. Please hold the DRAE Assembly in your prayers this week. The input from guest speakers is being posted as PDF text files on the DRAE website.
