Preparations are now underway for the next Teams International Gathering in Fatima. Please feel free to advertise the event because this is one of the big world gatherings of married couples. At the last event, held in Brasilia, there were 8,000 attendees.
Expressions of interest: The International Team is wanting a rough idea of numbers by mid-October 2016. This is by no means a definite commitment one way or the other, but to give the organisers a broad idea so they can start to plan accommodation etc. Please let your Sector or Regional Couple know if you are interested in attending.
Previous attendees at these gatherings will attest to the impact it made on them, the great spirit of camaraderie they experienced and their joy of meeting Teams couples from all around the world.
Estimate of costs for the event is currently about 500 euros per person (not including air travel). This includes accommodation, meals and transport for the six days. In the past the payments have been made in instalments to assist those attending.
Help please! We are looking for some members (who could perhaps form a group) to take on the role of coordinating the Oceania contingent. This would include keeping a register of those attending; passing on any news as it comes to hand; confirming payments have been made; and perhaps organising something to distinguish us as a group (the last couple of years those from Oceania wore a vest using fabric with an indigenous design).
Hope to see you there!!
