The XVth ICMDA World Congress in Rotterdam (19-26 July 2014) was described by organisers and delegates alike as 'a glimpse of heaven'. Joining in worship with almost 900 doctors and students from over 90 countries is a unique experience and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet brothers and sisters from so many different backgrounds, including those from places where being a Christian doctor is very hard. 200 people from resource-poor countries were able to attend, thanks to generous donations to the bursary fund. CMF's appeal raised £24,640 which was a huge contribution – many thanks to all those who gave. We pray that the conference will bear much fruit in the months and years to come, as the delegates return home inspired and encouraged to live and speak for Jesus wherever they are.
