Visitors from abroad to German Kirchentag

Later this morning we shall learn just how many visitors from outside Germany are coming to the Kirchentag. There was high emotion yesterday when over 100 Kenyans arrived at the main railway station just as the rehearsal for the opening worship was coming to an end. Most of the international visitors are lodged with local families to give them a real taste of German life in the region the Kirchentag takes place in. It's quite challenging logistically to match up host families and visitors. anyway we hope that the visitors arriving from Kenya had a good night's sleep and will be ready for the openign party tonight.
