France Update

Greetings to all our partners in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

During this challenging season of the COVID 19 pandemic, God continues to show Himself strong on the behalf of His people.

Below are a few highlights of what God is doing in the country of France:

A couple of months ago, a lady that lives a few doors down from the church requested more information about Jesus' name baptism. As my wife and I were teaching her a bible study, she received the revelation of the Oneness of God and realized that she needed to be baptized in Jesus' Name. She explained to us that she was raised in the Muslim faith and that even during her upbringing, God already began dealing with her about His truth, despite being rejected by her family. She now has a burning desire to spread to the Gospel of Jesus Christ with her Muslim family members and friends.

On another occasion, Virginie, a first-time visitor to one of our Sunday worship services said she was raised Catholic but never felt the presence of God before as she did in the service that day. At the end of the service we offered to teach her a bible study. When she came to the first Bible study, we offered her a Bible. She cried and said at 36 years old, it was the first time she ever owned a complete Bible. 

Due to our limited number of in-person services during the current pandemic, we’ve encouraged our congregants to view on-line services with family and friends who would not normally attend a service and offer to teach them bible studies. As a result, there have been at least three occasions that we know of where family members have received the Holy Ghost in their respective homes! The young man on the left  prayed his brother through to the Holy Ghost in their home.

As we slowly return to a sense of normalcy, we are now more thankful than ever for the presence of God in  every in-person service.

Thank you for your continual prayers and financial support for the work in France.  Your contribution to the work in France is truly making a difference. 

God bless you!

Dean, Laureen and Caleb Byfield
