GOD GIVES THE GROWTH
Before learning of my mother’s death, Sharon and I were in France to speak at the Crossroad Church in Ferney France. It was exciting to think back to when our family, along with two other families, moved to the greater Geneva Switzerland area to start the church. Over the years it has grown and spread the influence of the Gospel all over Europe and the world. We planted and God has given the growth.
Along with joy over those influenced by the Crossroads Church (past and present), we rejoice at friends who came to Christ while we were starting the church, who are now part of the church’s leadership and infecting others with the DNA of the gospel of grace we sought to implant. Three of such friends are Irish Daphne and Richard, and Scottish Margaret pictured below.
DIVINE EXPEDITION…BOOK AND SEMINAR
While in France, I also led a Divine Expedition Seminar for the Crossroads Ferney and its recent church plant called the Crossroads St. Genis, also in France. A great group of people engaged with us in exploring the Divine Expedition theme, “Where Are You in the Book of Romans?”
Speaking of the Divine Expedition, it is not too late to order copies and receive them in time for Christmas. If interested, go to www.onexpedition.org or call Sharon at 310-488-2030.
ON TO AFRICA AND INTO THE NEW YEAR
Meanwhile, Phil Graf and I are now in Uganda and South Sudan for Phase 2 of our six-phase training. Our goal is to “multiply viral, missional, church planting movements.” God has already blessed our efforts in these countries. There is momentum developing to see people come to Christ, disciples made and leaders and churches multiplied. I will give a report upon our return December 19th.
THANKS AND REQUEST
We thank you for being part of what we are doing through your prayers and giving. We ask that you include us in your year-end giving, as well as your ongoing monthly gifts. We are so grateful for your partnership with us. God’s kingdom is growing and advancing because of it.
With much gratitude,
Linus and Sharon
