It's been a while since I've posted. So much has happened these past years. But nothing more memorable than the privilege of attending the 21st class of the School for Kingdom Evangelizers! Held in May-June 2016, our english school was held in the lovely South of France in a town called Bressol near Toulouse. Most happiest moments of course was the quality time i spent with my classmates and our hardworking instructors. For lunch we got beer (shh!!) and mussels one time. Yum!!
This was a while back, but it was the highlight of the year. I was able to get into Pioneer school after my first year of Pioneering in France. The school was held at the Chatillon complex in the South of Paris. Each day was long but rewarding, and we were spoiled rotten because we had a professional French chef who prepared all our lunch meals, and apparently woke up before dawn each day to get us the best baguettes and fresh ingredients from all over Paris and there was no on-site kitchen -now there's a challenge! All the English congregations got together, and created a themed lunch every day for us. We were really touched by all the volunteers and extra effort that went into making us welcomed guest. The memories of Pioneer School, of course, are unforgettable and cherished.

What does 23,600 Parisians look like all gathered together?
Just finished our District Convention at Villepinte this weekend
Unlike the assemblies I'm accustomed to in Canada, the Paris assemblies are held in one large warehouse-like rectangular room, with around 6 or more very large projection screens with the stage events projected onto them. (for the viewers in the back of the hall to see what's going on)
The Sunday afternoon drama was of course one of the highlights during the Convention. It was interesting to note the different sports played during the play by the characters at each convention. At the English DC held earlier in France, the sport the character, Max plays in the drama is basketball, at the Hindi DC it was cricket, for the French, it was football (or soccer).
