summer project stories: France

france1“Our Father who art in heaven–stay there.”
–Jacques Prévert, French Poet

The above quote epitomizes the atheistic slumber that hangs over France. Though French students tend to be open to talking about spiritual things, there are few people there who can wake them up. Nantes has a population of about 800,000 (comparable to Indianapolis) with only 4 Protestant churches of about 20-30 people each. When this project shared about God’s love with the French students, it was the first conversation many of them had ever had about spiritual things.
