In early January 2018, 51 SSIO members from six Sathya Sai Centres and Groups took part in a two-day conference in Moscow, themed “Man with Love Is God.” The conference began in a festive mood with a New Year’s concert. On day one, leaders from Sathya Sai Groups and Centres presented reports of their respective activities, including family camps and medical camps, food service for the poor and the needy, and training activities at the European Sathya Sai Education (ESSE) Institute. Speakers highlighted educational work at the Sathya Sai Complementary School in the region, which is attended by more than 150 children. On day two, attendees participated in seminars and round table discussions on spirituality and education.
