in the Homestretch…
Yes… we’re still in France, and yes… we still have Nick Cannon with us (He may just make it home Tanya & Jason!).
Over the past few days we’ve covered a great deal of territory and witnessed some pretty incredible things!
After saying good bye to the Brochus in Châtellerault, and in Bordeaux, we got to spend a few short hours with Pastor & Mrs. Paul Majdling, while our young people had a service with the youth of their church. We got to meet and hear an incredible testimony by one of the young men in that church before singing, testifying and bringing a message from God’s word.
After church, we headed back to Bro. Nowacki’s church in Melun (roughly a 6+ hour drive from Bordeaux). We arrived rather late and readied ourselves for a full day Monday:
- Prayer meeting at 8:00am (one of the local young people was filled with the Holy Ghost in that prayer meeting).
- Breakfast all together at 9:00
- Downtown to hand out invitations for church from about 10-11:30am
- Back to the church & then to the Bois de Bréviande for a BBQ lunch
- Youth service at 8:00pm (another local young person was filled with the Holy Ghost in this meeting… incredible!!)
After a busy few days, Tuesday was a “sleep-in-a-little-later” kind of morning followed by a visit to the UNESCO designated “World Heritage Site”, the medieval city of Provins where the ramparts date back to the 11th & 12th centuries. This was the first real rain that we had all week, and did it rain! Later that evening we attended the mid-week Bible Study at the church in Melun with Bro. Nowacki. (to the right you can see our young people mixed in with the young people from Melun).
As you are reading this, we are SOME-where trekking through the city of Paris. The team is, of course, very excited to see this incredible city!! We got on a bus at 8:30 to take us to the local train station where we caught one of the RER trains that whisked us in to the Gare de Lyon. From there we begin to tackle the city one attraction at a time!
Since we will end our time in France in the capital, you can be assured of one thing… by the time we hit the airport tomorrow, we will be completely wrung out!! To all family members reading this… please have nice comfy beds ready to receive some very tired bodies!! 🙂
Overall it will be a “good tired” though…. our hearts are full!
Thank you LORD for all the good things you’ve done during these days!!
