The Chinese group was especially important yesterday evening because two brothers from Paris were visiting, one was to be preaching.
It was good to meet them, they spoke French, and to talk about the Chinese group and the prospects for a Mandarin-speaking worker here in Bordeaux. Here's the upshot :
1) We need to pray for a Mandarin-speaking worker to come. It is far from clear who that could be or where they could come from, and that kind of Christian worker is rare.
2) Meanwhile it's important to work with the leadership of the Chinese group and to invest in training the keen lads is the way to go.
OK. Message received and understood. Just the very thing that I am keen to do.
