Hi Guys, I am an old cu member and relay worker at UCD! This time next week I will be in Jakarta, Indonesia attending the Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering. Deb Roe another previous cu member will also be there! If you would like to hear more about this amazing gathering, and the preparation in the run up to it I can email you my update letter. Just pm me. Cheers :)
Are you a recent IFESI/CUI grad? Would you be interested in staying involved by helping us think about partnering with the church in effective graduate ministry? We are looking for 5 or 6 people to see how the Spanish movement have been doing this for over 20 years, by attending their Graduate Conference in December? Spanish not essential (plenaries are in English) but it would be important to have at least one Spanish speaker in the group. Let me know if you are interested
Sally Patty shared IFES - International Fellowship of Evangelical Students's post to the group: Christian Unions Ireland (Formerly IFES Ireland).
Here's a snippet of our trip to Bulgaria. Taking part in the summer conference 'discovery diversity' was a brilliant experience, very eye opening. The students we met are now counted as great friends, excited to see how the relationships will develop among students across Europe. Sharing faith and life has been such a blessing to all participants. Really want to encourage all the work that goes on with international students, anything that we can do to help people coming into 'our culture' that is polar opposite to theirs is really important.
Most of all seeing students passionate about being a disciple of Christ and desire to make disciples in their setting, has for sure been inspiring.

We have just realised that there has been a problem with the contact email address on this flyer! It should all be sorted now, so if you have tried to email please do so again and it should work this time!! Sorry everyone! :)
Great to spend a few days with the CUI/Exodus team in Bulgaria! Irish day was amazing and seeing these guys sharing their lives, culture and faith have been a privilege. Pray for the team as the begin their social project today and continue to #pursuewhatcounts
Jonny teaching on Jonah this morning, Dutch, Danish, Serbian and Bulgarian students envisioned by the story. Really special time this Sunday morning here in Bulgaria. Team really thankful for Jonny joining us for a few days.
Remember our group from UUB Art College currently serving with IFES Movement in Bulgaria, and Jonny McClune as he visits to meet and encourage them this weekend
Summer may be quiet here on facebook, but student summer teams are fantastic places to learn stuff to apply to campus outreach. Some photos from a County Waterford team to follow. Anyone at Encounter have some photos/encouragement for us too?
