After meeting with our brothers from the peripheries in different parts of our world, we, the participants from Africa feel well equipped to spread the Gospel in our own peripheries. It has been for us a special period of formation and information gotten from the rich experiences shared by our brothers.
Our missions are located in the peripheries of our continent. We have experiences of wars, violence, religious intolerance, terrorism and poverty. With this meeting, we resolve to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters by being true messengers and witnesses of the joy of the Gospel by our testimony of life. We want to bring hope, joy peace and reconciliation to them.
We suggest to ACLA and to our various organisms and missions to revisit our formation plans to reflect these experiences and needs of the continent at this time, as enumerated above.
