Hope in Europe

We just spent 9 days with our friends and Messianic Rabbis, David Chernoff and Jeff Forman, from the IAMCS (International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues/David is from Philadelphia and Jeff is from Toronto). We all serve on the Steering Committee of the IAMCS. My wife, leslye, and I have been called to Western Europe to encourage the development of a Messianic movement there after spending 12 years in Ukraine. We gathered Messianic and church leaders in Amsterdam and then in Paris to see what unity exists amongst these divergent groups and whether we as a group could consider sponsoring an all European Messianic conference in 2010, maybe in Paris. At both meetings we were asked to return for leadership conferences and helping to build a vision for what the Messianic movement could be in Europe. This is just beginning steps and we need lots of prayer. Shalom. David Schneier from Paris
