Fraternal week-end at Easter in Paris

The 14 Nisan gathering for the Memorial service is this year on the 14th of April. Because not all brethren and sisters can make it on a week day, we also invite them to come together at our usual meeting place for the 'Easter' celebration, at the Quaker house in Paris on the Sunday.

Each year there is a fraternal week-end at Easter in Paris, France. This year the relevant dates are 18 – 21 April. We stay together in a modest hotel, do the readings together and have 2 formal meetings where we are joined by some of our members who live in France and Belgium. The ability to speak/understand French is useful but not at all essential.

Escaped the fighting in South Sudan

Sue Mathias is presently in Uganda and has seen 2 of the brothers who escaped the fighting in South Sudan. They are both well. She also confirms that our sister Purity has now reached her home in Kenya after Sue and John Mathias were able to get funds to her to travel through Ethiopia, the same applies to our brother Martyn who has also now reached Kenya.

 A student who was also caught up in the fighting is safely in Northern Uganda. Sue and John have lost contact with a number of brothers and sisters and students and your prayers are still urgently required. The temptation to travel back to Uganda for economic reasons is high and Sue has tried to counsel the brothers not to travel there as some Ugandans have already done. The Ugandan military are involved and there is now concern that Ugandans will be targeted as a result of this.
