Life has been happening fast. Days are a blur. It's hard to believe I've been here in Europe for ten months now. I wish I could hang out with you one on one over a hot cup of coffee, share my defeats and victories from the past months with you, and hear yours as well. For now, this inanimate blog will have to do.
About one month ago, I joined the rest of my department (Fund Development and Communication) in hosting the Fund Development Exchange conference in Prague, Czech Republic. Our speakers, social media and fund development experts, were from the UK, and the attendees were from all over Europe and the US. Here's a pic of most of the people that were at FDE 2012.
A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Global Partners Training in Sofia, Bulgaria, with 114 other attendees from various countries (primarily in the Balkans). The media and leadership trainers were from Moody Radio (a couple of whom taught me when I attended Moody Bible Institute), In Touch Ministries, and National Religious Broadcasters. The primary purpose of this training is to assist Balkan believers involved in media ministry to effectively reach their audience.
