It's time for Slovenia

I got back to Bosnia from South Africa, and about a week later went to Ljubljana (about 4 hours drive away) for a mini-gathering of people from all over YWAM Europe. There were 22 adults (and 7 kids) from 12 different nations who came together to see how we could start something in YWAM in this nation. It was 2 days of praying for the nation and the people who are already working there in different organisations and also trying to see what and how we can work there in the future.

As part of my leadership role in YWAM Central Europe, I was part of the team who was organising the event - and it was such a privilege to work together with people from YWAM Grimerud in Norway, YWAM Amsterdam in Holland, and Andreja, the only known Slovenian YWAMer... Here we are: Andreas and Geir Edvin from Norway, Andreja, me, and Reinier from Holland.
There was a media team from YWAM Amsterdam who came specifically to make videos to promote the idea of YWAM in Slovenia. Here is one of their videos:

I am so glad that I could be a part of this event which included our former European Director, Jeff Fountain "just happening" to be there at the same time to promote his book about Europe's Christian roots, which had been translated into Slovenian. A highlight for me was singing together with everyone in the Ljubljana City Hall (you can see a clip in the video) - the acoustics were amazing, and our worship sounded so good, some of the locals and tourists started videoing us as well!

We clearly saw that it is time for Slovenia!!
