An exciting day

Wednesday was the Chinese New Year and our Chinese group held a New Year outreach today. A Chinese pastor came down from Paris and lots of invitations had been given out.

So it was that I met my new friend Pastor Kaan who speaks good English and French, so I was able to find out a bit about him. He belongs to the Christian and Missionary Alliance and there's quite a team of them in France. We exchanged details so that he can help us as we help the Chinese group here.

There was another CMA Pastor visiting, too, from the International Church in Toulouse. He had come up to speak to the FEF guys about the possibility of CMA people coming to work in Bordeaux. Exciting times.

There was a good number of students there for the meeting and for the Chinese ravioli that followed. Just a couple of crises - the extension cable overloaded but I just needed to indicate the button to press - and the chemical toilet overflowxed. This was less pleasant but Andy and I got it sorted and the day seemed to all go off very happily.
