The Bridge Team has been assembling in Paris since May 2008 when the first members arrived from The Netherlands and paved the way. Just in the last month, the Wolf family of Wisconsin and Kelly Delp have arrived to work in children's ministry and worship and graphic arts, respectively.
Our team now numbers 15 adults and 13 children. The picture above is from a retreat we had at the end of February, asking God to help us move ahead. We were graced by the presence of Pastor John and Sandie Kuert who came to minister to us all the way from Evangel Heights Assembly of God in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Our children were treated to an amazing time with a team of five from Maranatha Worship Center
in Wichita, Kansas. Many thanks to the Kuerts, the Wessels and the Griffins!
This last week a team of 11 from Evangel University
in Springfield, Missouri has come to help us with our preparations for the opening. They have made contact through flyer distribution with about 2500 people at train stations and at the huge international business park, La Defense. We
would not be where in as good a position for our opening as we are without them.
This Sunday we will set up our equipment in the Hotel Novotel in Rueil-Malmaison
for our first public service and are praying for a strong start! If you'd like to know more about how to get there, please see our website
