As we celebrate Jesus’ birth this year, we are amazed at all He continues to do through His church, here in Paris and around the world! This fall has seen growth in all the right ways through our ministry in Paris. We opened a Community Centre in a wonderful location. Not
We opened a Community Centre in a wonderful location. Not only is our team growing through volunteers and the synergy of having a central meeting location, but our presence in the community during the week is growing. We are thankful for God answering all our prayers in this long-time goal for The Bridge.
More people are prepared to be baptized in early 2017 and our team is developing new discipleship strategies to connect with transient people who are here for different lengths of time and commute from all over Paris. Every summer we feel like our church has to start from scratch with so many departures, but every Christmas we rejoice to see what He has done in our community to breathe new life into the hearts of men, women & families who have joined The Bridge community!
Our family will spend the 2017-2018 school year in the U.S. (yes it’s been almost 4 years since our last time back!). We see God weaving together our leadership team in preparation for that season. We look forward to the reconnection with so many, but we ask your prayers for our family as it also brings many challenges as well.
Tessa is 15 now, Sophia 14, Luke 8 and Tori 4. We will celebrate 21 years of marriage and that same time together in ministry next week. We are blessed by God and by you. Merry Christmas and may your 2017 be the best year yet!
