In June 2018 nine people came to France from the US and Germany for a week of connecting; with God, with each other, with church planters, and with the French people. During the week, the group visited many of the World Team France ministries in Paris and the surrounding region, heard testimonies and stories from French church planters, and spent time in prayer together. By the end of the week the group had a new understanding of the spiritual climate in France, and the unique needs of church planters here.
We asked the members of the group about their highlights from the week. Here are some of the things they shared:
- The dinners that were prepared by different church planters and missionaries each evening, giving the group an opportunity to hear each one’s story and to better understand their ministries
- The Paris history walk where they stopped at key sites in Paris to pray
- The testimonies of how God changed the lives of specific people and where they are today because of it
Each person who came was impacted in some way. Some are now exploring a call to serve in missions, others are encouraging friends and family to also pray for France. None were left unmoved or unchanged by their time at the Paris Prayer Connection.
In June 2019, another group will come to France for the next Paris Prayer Connection. Like last year, they will visit projects, meet church-planters, hear testimonies from local Christians, and discover how God is at work in France. They will spend time in prayer together, lifting up the nation of France to the Lord, asking Him to build His church and Kingdom among the French people. They will experience joy as they see what God is already doing, and sadness at how many people are still living without Him. They will learn more about France, about God, and about themselves, and they will form relationships with people who share their heart for the lost.
Are you going to be in this group of people? Are you ready to give a week of your time to come and join us in prayer for the nation of France and the lost people here? This is your opportunity; don’t miss it.
