Spring is in full swing here in Paris. Watching new life spring up helps us remember that through Christ, there is always hope! We are humbled that God has chosen us to serve Him for such a time as this.
This month we began working with Pastor and SIs. Nowacki’s on the 40th anniversary of the Eglise Pentecostiste Unie De France (EPUF). They gathered videos and photos from the 40 years in which they have served in France. We worked with them to compile this into a video that will be shown at the Pentecost Convention in June. It was great for us to sit with them, absorbing the history of what God has done in France. What a great faith-building exercise for the work that is also to come! We honor Missionaries John and Anne Nowacki for the years of service they have poured into this great nation.
This month we hosted Mark Yandris for a music workshop and concert at Paris Centre Church. He is a national recording artist/singer/songwriter/musician extraordinaire. It was a massive boost to our music program to have him with us. Our music team gleaned from his expertise, and when we had our gospel concert that weekend, they sounded amazing! You can check out the concert video below. We appreciate people making sacrifices of time and finances to pour into the work overseas. You can watch part of the concert below.
At the end of May, we headed to Portugal to help with the Area Coordinator and Regional Commission (ACRC) meetings. The annual ACRC meetings are a time of strategic planning to reach the Europe Middle East Region. It’s always a privilege to sit around the table with great leaders hearing about the work that God is doing and the vision for where we are headed. Although these meetings require much work on our part, they are a time of faith-building as well. The book of Acts is still happening!! We thank God for our great regional leadership that has a passion for reaching the lost!
Never underestimate the difference that you make with your prayer and finances. Your contributions help facilitate the work of God, and we thank you!
