By Antto Hassinen
We had the Finnish HARP Autumn workshop on the topic "Purity - the Treasure at the End of the Rainbow" with 12 harpies attending. It had been a while since the previous purity workshop, so the new HARP committee decided this was the most important topic for the 2nd generation ranging 12-17 years old right now.
The lectures covered topics such as the meaning and importance of purity, different temptations and how to overcome them as well as the matching process and life after the Blessing. The lecturers were all elder 2nd generation who could share about their own experience and give practical tips and examples. - read more

German CARP Retreat in Cyprus
Frenaros, Cyprus, September 18 - 24, 2017

By Karl Martin Zimmerman
The recent CARP summer retreat took place on the beautiful yet sadly divided island of Cyprus. This retreats topic was "Epanenosis" (Greek: reunification) and focused on the current division of the country and its people into Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots and its recent history. In case you do not know about the situation let me just summarize it briefly. In the year 1974 the Turkish military invaded the state of Cyprus and have besieged the northern part since, setting up a strict border between the north and south and pushing people from their homes. This Turkish territory was self-proclaimed as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and is only recognized as such by Turkey and itself. Now this division caused a lot of pain in the country and this pain still holds in the people of Cyprus.
We as a group of foreign students gained an insight into these emotions by visiting the border and the northern part of the island and by hearing testimonies and talks from locals who have either experienced the invasion or are active experts on the field such as a politics professor and a journalist.

Let's Get Ready for School !!!

Rome, Italy, 9. September 2017

By Francesca Calì
Three 2nd generation girls from Rome, after just coming back from STF Europe, organized a one day seminary for middle and high school kids, to give them a chance to end an amazing summer in a great way. Nine children attended the workshop and one friend of a second generation.
Many of them participated in national and European workshops, and had many experiences that it's easy to forget when school starts. We structured this day in a way that they could have time to reflect and establish a goal for the new school-year. - read more

STF and DONE Graduation at the FFWPU South London Peace Embassy 
South London, UK, 2. September 2017

10 young people from STF Europe and 3 from the European Second-Generation Department DONE have now returned to Britain, and on Friday 1st September we gathered in South London's Peace Embassy for a cosy testimony evening. We enjoyed an amazing dinner together, which was followed by 7 programme graduates sharing testimonies on their past year of fundraising, witnessing and running workshops around Europe. Stephen Bayliss, 19, shared how STF helped him to heal his relationship with his parents, which was very moving to hear. Joshua Thompson, 19, shared his realisation on how much harder witnessing is than he thought, but also how deep it is. Also, Natalia Almeida, 19, shared how DONE helped her to see where she should get her value from and gain the mindset to always look to grow. Overall the deep insights and personal stories inspired the audience and refreshed us all to look forward to this year in hope.
