Yesterday, Aina & Jan-Aage Torp invited to an apostolic gathering at Grei Kafe in Oslo where nine apostolic leaders met together with the American minister Paul Costa, who is an acquaintance of Jan-Aage since 2002.
- We chose this place because we have a calling unto the down-and-outers of Oslo, says Jan-Aage who as far back as 2002 initiated and hosted the first gathering for apostles in Europe at the prestigious Hotel Norge at Høsbjør in Hedmark. - I got the mandate at that time from Dr. C. Peter Wagner, and we gathered 30 apostles and prophets from 22 European nations.
- After many years I am ready to take on this mandate again, says Jan-Aage, who is still on sick-leave after his near-death-experience in February 2011. - The apostolic movement is knocked down in all of Europe, but Aina & I believe that the time is right to gather apostolic leaders in Europe again, after my own problems for the past six-seven years had stopped the development.
Among the participants were Reidar Paulsen from Bergen and Karl-Axel Mentzoni from Fredrikstad, who both participated in the first Europe gathering in 2002, along with Jan-Aage Torp.
- We are going to have a gathering of apostolic leaders from Northern Europe in January 2013 here in Oslo, and then we will take one step at a time, says Jan-Aage Torp.
