However, there is a revolution of the gospel kind taking place in France these days. I had the great privilege of witnessing it first hand just a few days ago. It comes in the form of a group of Christians who are piercing the darkness in an area of the world that still struggles to acknowledge even the existence of real light. But now, thanks to the leadership of Portuguese pastor Nuno Pedro and his helpmate Natalie and the 12,000 members of the Charisma Christian Church, the things of faith are fast becoming as important in that part of the world as the historical monuments.
Mitzy and I, along with good friends Sandi Patty and her husband Don, were only there for a short time, but there is no mistaking that the gospel-- through this church body-- is having a powerful effect on France and beyond.
When God brings it to your mind after reading this, I ask that you join in prayer with the community of faith in Paris as they continue to spread the gospel with love, kindness and boldness through the fellowship of the Charisma Christian Church as they work to fulfill their calling to "Lead people to faith in Jesus Christ."
