Many of you have heard us share about the challenges of reaching the French with the gospel. For multiple reasons it's normally not as simple as going door-to-door. Typically there are many barriers that have to be torn down before the French will truly hear the good news. It takes a lot of prayer, creativity, and relationship-building (i.e. time). Some have asked what kind of things we would actually DO to reach the French once we arrived. I wanted to highlight one creative approach being used right now as an example of the types of things we could do to gain a presence in the French community.
Music is an effective tool in France, as it is in most places (you can click on the image for more details.) These concerts create a non-intimidating atmosphere in which they can communicate biblical truth, both through music and word, and hopefully create new relationships and opportunities. They're currently doing a concert about once a month in a nearby cafe and the next concert is tomorrow! Please pray that the seed will fall on good soil and that God will produce much fruit. Also pray that God will lead us to the financial partners we need to join the church-planting effort taking place in France.
