Daily Report Congregational Conference and Formators' Meeting 2016 at Syalom Retreat House in Bandungan, Indonesia.

Daily report of ConCon and Formators’ meeting, Tuesday, 2 August 2016.
On the 7th day of the Congregational Conference (Con-Con) and the meeting with the formators, we split up in two groups. The formators continued among themselves and the General Council had theirs with the provincial and representative of the Netherlands.
The day started early in the morning with a prayer service led by the delegates of the Malawian Province. Their theme for the day was “Praise the Lord in Serving Him”. 
It promised to be a sunny day as the sun showed itself very early today. Usually it has not been too warm or cold here high up on the mountain. Actually a perfect climate to stay for meetings, but for some of our fellow brothers from Africa a bit chilly at times. An advantage is we are hardly disturbed by mosquitos or other insects as is usually the case in the tropics.
This whole day was devoted to the presentation of the yearly reports of the different Provinces. The main aim is to share our joys and worries in our provinces and to be informed what is going on. Show our brotherly interest and give encouragement to one another. In this way we promote our internationality and solidarity. For me coming from the Dutch FIC province it strikes me again and again the enormous activities in formation and  apostolate in the other provinces. There is a lot going on, it is full of life, for people most in need. We may be grateful for it.
We closed the day full of deliberation with celebrating the Eucharist thanking God for calling us being Brothers FIC.
