To all partners in the European Disability Network, their co-workers, and anyone interested in Bible-based ministry among disabled people in Europe
May grace and peace ever be increasing in you, in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 2 Peter 1:2
Your invitation to Hope II in Budapest, 9 - 13 May 2011
In April 2002 a major Hope For Europe congress was held in Budapest, Hungary, attended by 1000 invited evangelical leaders from 38 European countries. Called HOPE.21, it aimed to explore the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ for 21st century Europeans.
That congress brought together the people shown in the photo (right) who laid the foundation for the European Disability Network. Since then a steering group has met annually to develop the work. Many visits have been made to partner organizations, and 4 training conferences have been held. AND NOW…
The EDN Steering Group invites you warmly to the second Hope Congress in May 2011 in Hungary. Your ministry can be strengthened, supported and multiplied in partnership with others. You will be:
• Inspired by Biblical teaching on different themes
• Encouraged by what God is doing across Europe
• Equipped with practical ideas and information to strengthen your ministry
• Renewed through sharing with Christians from other countries
Delegates will gather altogether to hear plenary speakers, then have 2 days focusing on disability issues in our own hotel. Representatives from other networks will also be present, enabling us to influence the promotion of 'disability' in their work. We have developed a programme that gives many opportunities for interaction and learning.

regularly. Click Congress.
During Hope II you’ll get chances to be an advocate for disabled people and promote an inclusive model of church ministry. EDN is a network that exists only through cooperation between its partners.
Register NOW at http://www.hfe.org/Hope-II-congress/Sign-Up.aspx.
The cost, which is partly subsidized, includes all conference attendance fees, quality hotel accommodation that is suitable for disabled people, all meals and refreshments plus transport between our hotel and Congress Centre.
If you register before April 31, you'll pay less. Later registration means paying more.
May our precious Lord be with you always.
