» about this person

"God has a particular story with people, taking them beyond their own horizons. In that way Christian faith grows. From the very beginning Christians have believed, thought and acted across cultures and borders. Today the Evangelical Mission in Solidarity allows us to make this experience in Asia, Africa and Europe: God's story continues in all parts of the world. "

„I am proud to be part of the “Mission in Solidarity“ and its future course. We need to be constantly aware of how important ecumenical relations are.

» about this person

“For years now, the African continent has held a special attraction for me, in particular the hospitality and the optimistic spirit of the Africans themselves. In Africa, people don’t shy away from a challenge, even if their resources may only be meager. After all: ‘What is impossible for mortals is possible for God’ (Luke 18:27).”

"The Middle East is both fascinating and frightening. I have been 'hooked' to this region with its people, its religions, its cultures for years. It was here that God became flesh. This is the place where our faith is rooted. Extraordinary hospitality and latent tension are often intertwined. Despite the ongoing political crisis, there are many examples of a peaceful co-existence in mutual respect."
