While in France we will be working alongside the full time missionaries there! We are so excited to partner beside them as we serve alongside them in English Speaking Conversation Ministries, Coffeehouse ministry, and work alongside to reach the homeless as well.
One of the parts of our heartbeat are reaching the homeless people in the city of Paris. Did you know that 140, 000 people are homeless in Paris, and this includes 30,000 children. To give you a look on what that looks like in comparison to the states..... In NYC more than 129,803 different homeless men, women, and children slept in the New York City municipal shelter system (Not including people who did not sleep in shelters). This includes over 45,000 different homeless New York City children.
I am sure many of you think.. Paris?! It is beautiful there, and we of course agree.. But the reality is there are still Lost People there, and God wants them found. There is a staggering rate of homeless people, whom are desperate. But the biggest concern is the statistics on religion. In France less than 1 percent of people believe in Jesus. LESS THAN 1 Percent! That is a shockingly low number.
I believe in the work that the missionaries in France are doing. Last summer I was inspired by them, and amazed at all they do to bring the light of Christ to the city of lights. Therefore, we feel it is important to partner with France, and send a team back to serve alongside of them!
The team we are sending is very small, and we will be working with the team there in France in their many ministries, including helping them with their new church plant! As we work alongside them, we are excited to help in anyway possible! If you would like to know more about our trip please message me privately!
