I praise God that through His grace I participated, during Sept 14-25, in the following events:
- During Sept 14-18, as a board member, I participated in the World Christian Endeavour Union’s board meeting, held in Romania in the city of Cluj-Napoca. Several other board members from other continents were also present at the meeting. These meetings served as a beautiful opportunity to share about the work of the various CEs in the world, as well as to talk about future of the WCEU and its vision and mission. We also discussed the World Christian Endeavour Convention that is going to be held in 2018 in USA. At the end of the meeting, the president of WCEU, Rev. Kálmán Adorján (Romanian) officially appreciated and thanked the WCEU General Secretary, Mr. Andreas A. Rudolf, who ends his term in November 2016, and will retire. He then officially called Rev. Dr. Dave Coryell (USA) to his post as the newly elected General Secretary. He officially starts his ministry on 1 December 2016. Finally, the president prayed to God and asked for His leading of the new General Secretary in his work.
- As a member of the WCEU I also serve in the Central Committee and the Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee is working on both the election of the new president and the new board members, that will take place during the 2018 Convention.
