In France we were encouraged with the arrival of a missionary family from Canada, Karl and Christen de Souza, who have joined Joshua Turnil (JFJ Director, France) and Chantale Onona, a young Swiss lady. Jacques Caruel, a volunteer and brilliant accordionist, is warmly received in the Jewish community in Nimes, France and we continue to do missionary trips to Marseille. Deborah and I went through a time of uncertainty over our future in Switzerland asking for discernment whether to return to England . The answer seems to be a clear "No" and we have begun the "rentrée" assured by the Lord that we should stay here. Recently the Lord has opened some amazing doors, including for Deborah, a wonderful teaching post (she is still in her trial period, so please pray). God has provided unexpected and unusual opportunities to witness to Jewish people. An Orthodox Rabbi has become a personal friend and invited me to a Sabbath service where I was introduced to the August congregation. He also invited me to a Bible (Torah) study at the family of Salaam Alaikum one of his flock and I told them about my belief in Jesus. Most recently he September attended a conference given in our home to a private group of Jewish PACTEC people ("Le Cercle de Reflexion"). Thirty people, mostly atheistic Jews, gathered to hear me speak on "Les Juifs et Jésus." The opposition was October palpable, but stronger was the firm hand of the Lord, thanks to the LINK Au Pairs encouraging presence of Christian friends spreading the aroma of Christ. November Jews4Jesus, Suisse A major question now (and prayer request): how do I follow this up? July Zimkids December YFC Middle East As we continue our ministry witnessing to Jewish people across Switzerland, please pray that God would open their hearts to the Gospel and that He would give us the words to boldly preach the Gospel.
