I'm preaching for the Chinese group this Saturday, this time in French which will then be interpreted into Mandarin.
Then Sunday morning we have a joint service at the Eglise Baptiste de Caudéran, then we leave for the pastors conference which is held at Chausse, near Alès in the Cévennes.
It's a LONG LONG drive. Last year I took our car and we left Bordeaux around 3 in the afternoon, arriving at Chausse at about midnight - seven hours straight driving, and couple of stops and a lot of confusion trying to find the conference centre at the end.
This year we had planned to go by train, but several events have overtaken us, including a meeting for one of our party today in Nîmes, ill-health for another of our party, a further person being added to the party and a brother from up the coast who wants to travel with us.
This latter brother can take his car, a Golf, but he can't drive that far due to an old war-wound, so I will be driving the VW to Chausse.
I'll pop photos of Chausse on the blog when I can. It's a wonderful place on the side of a hill hidden amongt the chestnut forests. We usually eat quite a lot of chestnuts there, one way or another.
