Delegates in Hamburg are delighted with the messages of support we have received from members of the ICMA family around the world
From Bogota comes a kind message from Ms Lina Cecilia Peña Tavera of the National Pastoral Social Secretariat of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Colombia.
Un saludo fraterno desde Colombia. Mis mejores deseos para el Congreso a celebrarse en próximas horas. Nuestra oración y cercanía para que todo salga conforme a lo esperado y que de este congreso surjan compromisos acordes a la necesidad que tiene nuestra gente.
In English, Lina’s message says
Greetings in fellowship from Colombia. My best wishes for the Conference which will shortly begin. Our prayers and thoughts are with you that your hopes will be fulfilled and that this conference will give rise to commitments reflecting the needs of our people.
Mrs Paddy Percival, who works tirelessly for seafarers in the busy port of Durban, has sent us this message.
Our prayer and message for you and all delegates to the conference is that God will bless you all beyond measure as you debate and deliberate over the affairs of seafarers and shipping worldwide. May your fellowship be blessed as you re-unite and renew friendships from around the world. Although not there physically, I can assure you I will be with you in prayer and spirit and send my sincere love and greetings to all my colleagues from South Africa and friends from many nations.
Sincerely, Paddy Percival
We thank Lina, Paddy and all our friends around the world for their support and prayers.
