Thank you for praying for the four different outreaches which took place across France this summer. A total of 45 people from 9 different nations united to serve God with OM France in short-term missions, giving out around 6000 gospels, 20,000 invitations and a large number of Bibles, Jesus DVDs, or other gospel literature. Please ask if you’d like to read the full report for any outreach, but here are some highlights!
A wonderful week doing letter-box gospel distribution in a beautiful region of France, literally taking God’s Word to every household, no matter how isolated. An ambitious project by a dedicated church, and at the end of the week we felt like there was still so much to do! But we were reminded of the story in the bible with five loaves and two fish (Matthew 14), and the way God uses our smallest contribution to achieve wonderful miracles.
Pray that hearts are moved and lives are transformed by the power of God’s Word.
Champs-sur-Marne/Torcy (Ile de France)
Distribution, surveys and kid’s clubs! What a privilege to be part of God moving in the hearts of little children, during this outreach launching the church-plant in Torcy! It was such a blessing to be part of their lives for a week, and to watch the joy on their faces as they recited life-changing verses.
Pray that the word of God remains deeply rooted in their hearts, and one day produces ripe fruit.
Four churches from different denominations partnered to bring true light to a city with a few committed Christians, in the street festival “Chalon dans la rue”, and our team contributed through dance, mime, song and biblical art. What a great testimony of the Church as God intended, and redeeming art, Christians making a stand for their God: excellence for His glory.
Pray for perseverance for the churches of Chalon, that they remain true to Christ’s mandate to evangelise and make disciples.
Retro Extreme (Pays de la Loire)
12 dedicated individuals, putting their normal lives on hold and stepping out in faith to see God doing amazing things! We partnered with two evangelical churches to distribute almost 3000 Gospels and even more invitations for an International evening. And we were blessed to be able to pray with people in the street and see God challenge others through our own life-experiences.
Pray that those who were challenged will turn to the Lord for His peace and freedom.
