The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization began yesterday. It is a gathering of 4,200 missions and ministry leaders from around the world. It is being held in Capetown, South Africa to discuss the current state of the world through the lens of God's heart for the world. It began with Billy Graham's passion to "unite all evangelicals in the common task of the total evangelization of the world," but now also encompasses other activities of the Body of Christ.
The great thing about this congressional meeting is that with improvements in technology, it is more global and interactive than ever! There are over 600 globalinks across the globe. But even if you miss out on a globalink, there is an amazing forum online that you can participate in. It's a great opportunity to connect with other mission leaders and mission minded people from around the world.
