African Enterprise’s ministry tour in Switzerland
A brand new year and another opportunity given by the Lord of the
Harvest to his labourers to till the ground for the glory of his Kingdom! This
January, AE Europe’s director, Lynn Nwagbara kicked off the year with another
exciting evangelism venture, this time around promoting the work of AE by
facilitating team leader Edward Ngaira’s ministry tour in Switzerland.
first step was the 5th edition of the FDE (Forum Des Evangelistes) .
The FDE was born in 2007 and the pioneers were inspired by the Lausanne
Congress Movement . It promotes a place where evangelists can come together from
various backgrounds and denominations for discussion, training and workshops.
The FDE Europe team works in collaboration with Bible schools, churches and
various Christian institutions in Belgium, France and Switzerland.
European edition took place in Vevey on the shores of Lake Geneva at the IBME
(Institut Biblique & Missionaire Emmaus) .
AE Kenya’s team leader was invited by the FDE steering committee to
participate in the event, in order to help implement a similar model of forum in
East Africa in 2014. Also present were a representative from the Lausanne
Movement, Rev. Derek Simpson from the UK, the leader of OC (One Challenge) ’s
180 Degree youth movement in Spain Helder Favarin, Dieu TV ’s Vice-president
Eric Gay-Piaget of Switzerland and numerous French-speaking Christian networks.
The three-day conference was a jovial and productive
endeavour as around 160 participants from French-speaking Europe gathered at
the Emmaus centre, braving the icy winter of Vevey, which was covered by
blankets of snow. The theme was
‘Evangelistes: Solitaire ou Solidaire’, Some of
the highlights of the workshops and seminars were David Richir’s
exposition of the book of Acts and Jacques-Daniel Rochat’s talk on the true
meaning of the Church as was envisaged by the first Christians, a church
