This chap was introduced to us by someone who comes to the English service. It's a chap who lived in Pessac with his mother and their background is protestant though neither has attended church for years. She was 91 and I am told that she was quite a lady in her day - a friend of Jacques Ellul, she rescued Jews during the occupation.
Well at a time like this he needs a pastor, and I am the one he knows. So it's a privilege to be involved in helping this guy by sorting out funeral arrangements, by officiating and by announcing the hope of the gospel at a time of great sadness.
