Auschwitz tour an impressive experience
March of the Living - a declaration of Life!
From 8-12 April C4I International organized an international trip to concentration-camp Auschwitz. The tour was led by Koen Carlier and Marianne de Jager, and was organised in partnership with Shalom Ministries Ozwiecim. On Monday 12th April the group of 18 Christians from 8 countries joined the March of the Living, a Jewish event which was attended by thousands of young Jews from all over the world to commemorate the Holocaust and to declare: NEVER AGAIN! To be there as Christians and to walk with the Jewish people from Auschwitz to Birkenau was an experience never to forget! Watch the film that was made during the March of the Living by the Dutch National TV Station EO. ( In English)..
C4I for the first time in Surinam
Conference organized by Israel Comite Suriname
Willem Glashouwer was the main speaker at this 2-day conference organised by the Israel Comite in Surinam. Willem was able to teach extensively on the relationship of Israel and the Church; Christians; the prophetic promises regarding the Promised Land Israel, in history and today. The eyes of many were opened, and there was a very positive response to this message, which for many participants was new. In addition, many meetings were held with local churches and organisations. We thank God for this wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord and the body of Christ in Surinam, and look forward to a fruitful and blessed partnership with the IsraŽl Comite Suriname.

Arabic and Indonesian editions of Why Israel? book now available!
"The publication of these books is a strategic and important step for us"", notes C4I International Director Andrew Tucker. "Indonesia and most Arabic language countries are explicitly Moslim countries. We fully recognize that Christians in these countries live under often dangerous circumstances. You may ask why they should learn about Israel when it is so difficult to live as a Christian in these countries? The answer is simple: the return of the Jewish people is a sign of the coming of Jesus as Messiah. read more

Conference in Romania in co-operation with Alfa Omega TV
Teaching on Israel and Jerusalem
The conference in Timisoara started on 6th May Thursday evening, and continued on Friday 7th May. Especially the evenings were attended by a lot of people. After the lecture about 'Christian Antisemitism' many people repented for the way Romania has treated the Jews. Like Daniel repented for the sins of his people, also these people repented for their country! The whole conference was taped and will be broadcast on Romanian TV (Alfa and Omega.ro).
Conferences in Hungary
Rev. Glashouwer opened the conference held on a boat!
Straight after the conference in Romenia, Willem Glashouwer travelled to Hungary to speak at the conference organized by the recently established Isrel Forum. Willem reports: "The time in Hungary was very blessed. Especially the church service in Calvary Chapel Church in Budapest, where 300-350 young people attended the teachings! Many were very touched by the message of God's faithfulness towards Israel and towards themselves! The conference conference organised by the Israel Forum was held on a boat on the Danube River in Budapest. It was organised by C4I Hungary in cooperation with 10 other Israel movements. I was invited as guest of honor and had the privelege to open the conference".
