It's official: the next Connect Europe gathering for emerging reformation-wired leaders will take place in Istanbul, October 6-9. We reserved two youth hostels in the old town, on walking distance of the Aya Sofia and the Topkapi. The official invitation will be sent out in a few weeks time. As a team we had an inspiring time preparing for this event, and look forward to what God will do. Below a few pictures of us to get into the mood. :-) Also check out Niina's impressions here and here, and Gabi's posting here.
