Moving Forward.... Statement of CFC Stockholm

,February 15, 2008

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings of Peace!

Like all our brothers and sisters around the world, we were hoping and praying for a miracle that the two CFC groups might resolve their differences and be united again as one body in Christ. However, despite patiently waiting and constantly praying over the past couple of months, it has become apparent that this re-unification will not take place in the NEAR future... (Needless to say, we STILL BELIEVE it WILL happen ... in GOD's TIME though, as we say).

Thus for the greater good of the community in STOCKHOLM , we have but one choice and that is to MOVE FORWARD...

By doing so, we needed to understand and determine the CHARISM and MISSION which not only "fits" the Stockholm community's unique condition and needs, but also that which will provide the best opportunity for spiritual growth and complete Christian development for all of us moving forward. Furthermore, we also had to take into account the pastoral leadership structure to which we could attain appropriate and consistent support and guidance as a whole.

Thus, having thoroughly considered and deliberated all possible aspects that we could "humanly" come up with and then entrusting the rest to the Lord's providence and wisdom,
WE, the Couples for Christ community of Stockholm Sweden, have voluntarily and unanimously decided to align ourselves with the Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) under the Leadership of Bro. Frank Padilla, Bro and Sis Tony and Ruby Borja, Bro and Sis Larry and Babeth Castillo and Bro and Sis Rey and Cecile Rentillo.

Be that as it may, we STILL, and will ALWAYS recognize the CFC International council and the entire CFC-GK community as our beloved brothers and sisters under the ONE GLOBAL COUPLES FOR CHRIST COMMUNITY... recognized by the Vatican and unified still under our one Lord, Jesus Christ. This means that our HOMES and our HEARTS will ALWAYS be open to our fellow brethren whenever and however possible.

May the Lord help us in our decision and may HE keep us faithful to His calling always.

God bless us all!

In Christ,

Andre and Novie Suñaz
On Behalf of the CFC Stockholm Community
