About 22 men from three different areas of Romania: Western Mountains of Romania; Timisoara – west Romania and Sibiu – center Romania, came at Alpinis for training. The theme of the first session of the Conference was: “Working with the Holy Spirit in Growing your Church Family”; some of the subjects touched were: Changing the World, Intimacy with God, Build on the Basics, Christian Action, Discipleship and Multiplication, The Power of Vision. The speaker for this first session was Mr. Michael Boyce from Mount Bethel United Methodist Church, Marietta, GA. Mike is a long time friend of MLI and an excellent Bible teacher. Mike had a very successful carrier in USA Marine, he has a rich experience in dealing with the challenges of life.

Thank you so much Mike for sharing with us not only your knowledge but also your experience. Thank you for opening your heart for us. May the Lord abundantly bless you, your family and your ministry. Please take a few minutes to read the impressions of some of the participants.
