The Bridge had it’s first public service this last Sunday, March 14, 2010. It was great day. “Renew” is the theme for this month… focusing on how God makes all things new. There were about 75 people there and everything went so smoothly. We had guests representing at least 6 different countries besides France. One family said their kids had a great time, and that they would be back! Pray with us for many, many more like that! We are waiting to hear on a permanent building for The Bridge, so we’re currently meeting at a hotel just off the main northwestern train line out of Paris (see www.thebridgeparis.com).
You’ll see here some pictures (click on pic to view a little bigger). A team from Evangel University (Springfield, MO) had been with us all week, helping with promotion, University ministry, and conference for expats, and preparations for the service. See pictures of their fearless leaders in action on Sunday morning– Dr. Robert Turnbull (French) along with Professor Brandon Schmidly (Philosophy) and his wife (Todd’s cousin) Leanne. It was a treat to have them here. The entire team was incredible with big servants’ hearts!
