November 2-5, representatives of 12 countries gathered for the annual Fall Leadership Retreat, in Ireland. Four amazing days of spiritual emphasis, teaching, meeting, sharing, praying, fellowship, and visiting the Teen Challenge centers in Ireland.
In October, two centers from TC Germany have uploaded a video about the work they do. These TC centers are located in Emsland and in Gutes Land. The videos are in German, but even if you don't understand this language, they give a good impression of the work Teen Challenge does in Germany. We hope you enjoy these videos.
