Group Photo of Delegates at GDF2015 in Manila

With #GDF2015 having come to a successful close, it is time for us to start looking at some of the incredible highlights of our time together.  Over the next weeks and months, you’ll want to keep a close eye on this blog for reflections, video, pics and much more as we reflect on our time together in Manila and also gaze into the future.  We begin just simply by giving thanks to God for making the Forum such a great success!  Nearly 300 leaders from around the world gathered together for several days of intense and fruitful work focusing on God’s mission to, through and beyond the people on the move.  By now the delegates have returned to their homes around the world, the editors of our compendium are beginning to digest the feedback received on their compendium sections, and leaders are beginning to put into practice the challenges heard in Manila of what it means to “enter the other’s world” and to faithfully engage in mission among diasporas.

As for GDN, we are working to keep the conversation going.  In addition to this blog, please follow us on Twitter where we are tweeting every day prayer requests, news articles and more relevant to diaspora missiology.  You should also “like” us on Facebook and track with us their as we post an assortment of different things.  We hope that you’ll talk to us through these channels through replies and comments.  Let’s get the world talking about what God is doing in our day in moving people from everywhere to everywhere like never before!
