When difficulties arise, it is sometimes easier to give up. But the faith of a few people in France changed circumstances and brought great joy to children, parents and grandparents…
In France, the Grain of Wheat team was faced with major obstacles when they recently partnered with a local church in Paris to organise a children’s festival. The local authorities were reluctant to cooperate and the weather forecast was discouraging. It would have been easy to give up, but instead the team turned to the Lord in faith.
Convinced of the tremendous impact this event would have on the lives of children who might never hear of God’s personal love for them otherwise, they put their full weight on God to provide.
When the city gave their approval and God provided perfect weather, the team was overjoyed! From young children to grandparents, the activities were applauded by all. Even those who were skeptical found the festival a delight! Not only was this a faith building experience for the team, but a truly unique opportunity to share God’s love with children and adults in a way they will always remember!
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11.1
