Vive le France! Horizions Mentors in Savoie

Just got back yesterday from the weekend in Savoie France.  Nestled among the beautiful French Alps, this area is merely an hour from Geneva Switzerland where I flew into.  My host Jean-Marc Razafindranary the president of the Youth and Children's Committee of the FEEB (French Baptist Union) took me in to stay with his wonderful family.   All day Saturday I had the privilege to present Horizons to the General Secretary Marc Deroeux and other members of the Federation Committee.  It was a great day of strategizing and preparations of some mentors for the HORIZONS program to roll out in France.

 After a great day of planning we had a wonderful meal together with my hosts family.  Sunday I had a chance to worship with the Baptist Church of Savoie and speak to the youth class.  We had a fun time together and it was fun chatting with youth again.  After Sunday Jean-Marc showed me from a distance Mont Blanc the highest peak in Europe.  It was a breathtaking day with leaves turning.  It was a fast and packed trip but I was so pleased with the enthusiasm to use HORIZONS in France! Merci!
