From the 7.th until the 9.th of December took place the meeting of the MWI-scholarship holders studying in France or in Belgium. Twenty scholarship holders originally coming from Syria, the Lebanon, Congo and some more African and Asiatic countries participated at the meeting.
We discussed about themes like "The beginning of the religiosity of Augustin and his first experiences as a controverter: the anti-manichean campaign." In addition, the Catholic Church of Madagascar has been presented under the aspects of her vitality and her challenges. Good photos made the speech very demonstrative and colorful.
During the meeting, there was also time for individual meetings and intensive exchange with the representatives of the Institute of Missiology. Beyond common prayers and a final mess celebrated all together, there was also time for the social aspects of the meeting.
The next scholarship holder meeting will take place in Paris from the 22.nd until the 24.th November. 2013.
„MWI scholarships enable the future leaders of the church in Africa and Asia to acqire the knowledge they will need in thier future roles. There is hardly any way to help more directly and more personally than by supporting a scholarship holder.”
