Monday 19th June 2006
Conference Centre
Neethlingshof Estate, Stellenbosc

Dear Conference Delegate
It is with pleasure that we welcome you to Jerusalem Summit Africa. Thank you for setting aside the time and finances to attend. We trust that it will prove to be a good investment of both.
Our organisations serve the Church in Africa, assisting it to play a full and relevant role in cooperating with God’s plans for Israel. The title of the conference draws on Genesis 12 verse 3 that states that God will bless those that bless Israel. Already we witness this taking place in a growing measure in Africa. Fervent prayer for Israel reverberates across the continent, Christians speak up for Israel and growing humanitarian projects in Israel continue to show that Christians can put the money and effort where their prayers are.
Israel in turn has shared its expertise in a variety of fields with Africa, establishing projects in various parts of the continent to help lift the mantle of poverty that besets many parts of the continent. We rejoice in this and trust that this conference will provide the incentive to see greater blessings released in Israel and on the continent.
Africa is a continent with vast potential. It is also a continent faced with severe challenges in terms of health and poverty at a practical level and a rising resistance to the Judeo-Christian values at a moral and spiritual level. The ?? international and local speakers who represent a wide array of specialist knowledge and experience, have geared their presentations towards establishing a better understanding of the present situation and providing initial guidance in meeting the many challenges.
May our participation in this conference move us forward along this path and may we return home with a clearer picture of how the relationship between Africa and Israel can build a bright Africa and secure Israel.
The South African teams of Bridges for Peace and the International Christian Embassy are here to take care of you during the conference and to be of service to you afterwards. Please don’t hesitate to make use of us.
