This will be short and sweet, as I am finishing cleaning up my studio apartment and getting my last items packed to leave Saint-Raphael and go to northern France. It has been a difficult week, as it has been hard to say good-bye to all the people here in Saint-Raphael that I met this summer and last summer. I have grown very close to the people that I spent a good deal of time with both last summer and this summer. It will be the most difficult saying goodbye to my French parents tomorrow morning.
I really feel like this has been a very successful month and a half in Saint-Raphael. I am excited about what God has been doing and what He will continue to do. I will talk more about that later, as I have more cleaning and packing to do 😊
I am planning on heading up north tomorrow morning about 10:00 and should be on the road throughout the entire day and into the early evening. There are no strikes that I know of. If you remember from last year, I got caught in the middle of the farmers strike. They blocked all of the entrances to the highways, so it took me 16 hours to get to Paris last year. I am praying for a 10-hour trip to northern France tomorrow, where I will be in transition until my arrival in Paris on Saturday. Thanks so much for all your prayers. God bless you all.
P.S. I wanted to send out a thank-you to the members of Rose of Sharon Baptist Church who are sending me messages via our secretary, Bill. I have gotten them and appreciate every single one of them. Bill, thanks for taking the time to send them to me.
