Expo-Bible 2010 News
A lady who visited the Expo in 2010 got in touch after the exhibition to ask for more information about how to become a Christian. We have been able to put her and her family in touch with Pastor Kim Fox of the Eglise Biblique Baptiste in Rouen, a large city in Normandy. The church is only about half a mile from where the family live. Pastor Fox is following up on the initial contact. Pray for the family that they will have their hearts opened by the Lord to the Gospel, and for the pastor and church in Rouen as they share the Gospel and God's love with the family.
Normandy: Eleven Hundred Years On
Normandy as a state, and now as a region within France, was established in 911 by a treaty between the invading Vikings and the Frankish kings - successors to Charlemagne - who ruled the region of Europe that became known as Normandy. By 933 Normandy had almost the same borders that it has today. Normandy was named after the North-men, or Norse-men, that is, men from the north, i.e. the Vikings. The people of Normandy are thus mainly descendants of the Vikings, with their own cultural heritage and character that is totally different from other regions of France.

In such a notable year it is worth recalling that today, a lot less than half of one percent of the population have any connection with evangelical churches or have had an opportunity to hear the Gospel. What, then, can be done about this? The Lord's Commission was to "Go and make disciples of all nations", to go to all people groups. In the light of the that there are three key words to consider: Pray - Give - Go. The prophet Isaiah, hearing God's question, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" was quick to respond: "Here am I! Send me!". Who, 1,100 years on in the story of Normandy, will put up their hand and be a part of the response to our Lord's call to "Go and make disciples" in Normandy?
