Changes ahead in the Chinese group

Until recently the Chinese group was headed up by the Gang of Three, or as I preferred to say, the Three Wise Men : Andy, Sen and YiHua. Yihua finished his PhD and left to do research in Germany. Sen is continuing his PhD but from China. Now Andy will return to his wife in Martinique.

He originally came to Bordeaux four years ago to accompany his daughter as she began her studies. He quickly found the church and took to it as the proverbial duck. He has LOVED his time in Bordeaux and it is clear that he finds it very hard to leave. It won't be easy for us to say goodbye to him, either.

However Andy's daughter is leaving Bordeaux to continue her studies in Hong Kong. Andy's son is studying in Lyon. Andy's wife is running the family business in Martinique. He needs to go back to be with her.

So please pray for the future leadership of the Chinese group. It will mean changes, obviously, but that's normal and as it should be. The only way to avoid change is to die.
