Tampa, Florida; Here I am!

I must start with saying, “This is scary.”

Is my English good enough? Do I have something relevant to say?

I`m not sure, but I will try. I cannot promise that I will write in flawless English, but I will do my best!

If you have any questions or a suggestion about what you would like for meto write — or if youjust want to say “Hello,” please leave me a comment

Rigt now I have a meeting with all the other European delegates in the Tampa Convention Center.

It is nice to meet everyone, and I must admit that I thought we would havefewer delegates from Europe, so I am impressed!

This is the beginning of my UMC GC-blogging career. I hope you will enjoy it.

If you leave a comment, I will be a very happy lay delegate:)
