As the calendar turns to 1966, Watch Night services in many churches will plead the cause of the World Congress on Evangelism scheduled to take place in Germany from October 26 to November 4. From the ends of the earth evangelists and churchmen will come to Berlin carrying the spiritual plight of the masses on their hearts. Increasingly eager to reach our generation with the Gospel of Christ, these devout leaders from many lands will share their burdens and blessings and shape conviction and compassion to match the present hour. In Berlin’s modern Kongresshalle, simultaneous translation into English, French, German, and Spanish will keep delegates and observers abreast of proceedings.
Two scheduled participants (there will be more than 1,200) were called to be “with Christ” in the year just ended. They were Tom Allan of Scotland and Ken Strachan of Latin America, whose vision and burden have thereby been transferred to those of us who remain.
The World Congress on Evangelism aims to bring to view a prospect of peace and power, of joy and hope, in which men and women of all races and nations can fully share.1
