We are so grateful for your prayers and support as we see Paris truly become the City of Lights!
May your New Year be blessed as God continues to show himself our faithful friend!

Below are some posts that we missed posting here over the last few months.  It has been a tremendous time of re-connecting with friends and partner churches.  Sharing what is happening at The Bridge has been so rewarding. baby Tori

Our family has also grown during this time.  Victoria Hope was born on November 17 at 8 lbs, 9 oz.  We are so blessed by this new addition.

The last half of 2012 has been a great time of growth for The Bridge.  In September, our emphasis called “Open Doors” led many new people to connect with The Bridge from the Paris community.  One hundred and fifty people were in attendance at The Bridge on a regular basis throughout the fall.

A Wonderful season of Rememberance
We are so thankful as we celebrate Christmas this year! The gift that God sent to earth two thousand years ago has brought life to the city of Paris where we have been ministering. Thank you for all your prayers and support this last year.

A Family Note
We have made an unexpected trip to the U.S. to be with Amanda’s family for the funeral of her Grandfather, Rev. Edward Grant. He has always been at the center of Amanda’s world, and we are thankful for your thoughts and prayers. He is just one of the many family and friends that have enabled us to move forward in God’s work because of their encouragement and love. We are celebrating his life and the way God used him in decades of pastoral ministry in West Florida.

All our love and warm Christmas greetings are yours,
Todd & Amanda Tyson
Tessa (10), Sophia (9) and Luke (3)

We want to wish each of you a wonderful Christmas time.  It’s a wondrous thing to celebrate Christ’s birth.  Cherish the memories and time you share with loved ones this month!

We are only a few months away from leaving for France, but it seems like just yesterday we left Hilversum in The Netherlands.  To celebrate what God has done that past two years, see HICC’s website by clicking here, and see an article in EU Digest about the 2nd church plant in Almere by clicking here (or see the Almere church– NDIC– via their website here).
This year has reminded us that just as God accomplished his great purpose by becoming flesh, He continues to work through humanity to reach the world.  The incredible partnership of churches and missionaries shows God has a unique part of His plan for each of us!
