Dear Friends,

The ISGF World Conference is an event where “Friendship” is lived by the delegates from most of the National Scout and Guide Fellowships (NSGFs). Como was the perfect spot to share experiences and make new friends.

Now, that all of us are back home on Fellowship Day, we can spread the message that Baden-Powell transmitted us – The Guide/Scout is a friend to all and a brother/sister to every other Guide/Scout.

Let’s get out of our meeting place and as adults contact our neighbor, our colleague at work, someone we do not know but is willing to speak with us. It is easy to ask people to be your friend through internet but it is difficult to ask directly.

Action is needed, so be different and improvise a small event, invite a person to go with you for a walk or a cup of coffee, knock at the door of a nursing home and smile to one of the patients. Share happiness.

Personal development is needed. Some people think that being an adult means that they have learned everything. Smile and share and you will learn and receive much more.

Some Local Scout and Guide Fellowships could even during this Fellowship Day collect some funds to help the NSGFs that cannot pay their fee.

This will be the beginning of a plan to share the happiness of being a member of ISGF.

Best greetings,

Midá Rodrigues

Chairman ISGF World Committee

Dear friends,
A group of Portuguese Adult Guides spent part of our Fellowship day in the \"Happiness House\", with women and children from African countries that come to Portugal to be treated from serious diseases. What an amazing day it was for everyone.

Chère Mida, Nous avons passé une très belle journée de l\'Amitié.Revenant de CÔME c\'était sympathique de se revoir et de pouvoir un peu partager cette belle et intéressante conférence.
J\'ai déjà rassemblé quelques photos...mais je dois me faire aider pour les transférer. Je ne m\'y connais pas ! Amitié à toute l\'équipe portugaise...Voilà déjà 13 ans que l\'on se connait ! Amitié

For this Fellowship Day I send to you all my best wishes for Peace on Earth. Primarily in Europe, we will soon start distributing the Peacelight of Bethlehem. Bishop emerita of Stockholm, Sweden, Caroline Krook, herself a girl scout, once called it “A light with a prayer for peace”. I urge you to put out your hand to someone you have never met before and say to that person: “I want to be your friend. Will you be mine?” Friendship between people promotes bonds and prevents hatred.
