Greetings from the International Coordinator

Dear participants in the LCJE AustralAsia conference.

Thank you for the invitation to extend my greetings to the conference and to
all of you participating in this the first of its kind event in your area. I
was invited to send a video greeting, but let me do it this way – by words –
and then I am sure that Bob Mendelsohn among all his pictures can find one
to go along with my greeting.    

First of all, I want to express my thanks to the group who have put the
conference together. Thank you for your hard work and your commitment to
Jewish evangelism and to the Jewish people. With the program you have set up
for the next days you are a great example of what the LCJE network is all

Thank you also to all of you who have made it your priority to set aside the
time and resources to take part in this event. I pray and trust that your
time together will be an encouragement to those of you in full time ministry
but also give all of you inspiration for your own work and a new vision for
what God is doing through and among his people.

For me as the international coordinator of a small network for Jewish
evangelism it is a great encouragement to see yet another chapter come
together to share burdens and visions, resources and ideas to further the
cause of mission among Jewish people today and to build up the body of our
Messiah. May the God of Israel richly bless the conference and your time
together over the next few days. 

With blessings – and in the Messiah

Kai Kjær-Hansen
International Coordinator, LCJE
