Why the France?
We thank God for raising up great men and women of faith in France who courageously stood up for the gospel of Jesus Christ, risking even their lives. Though there is not much connection between South Korea and France in terms of mission, one thing that Korean church never dismisses is the French reformer John Calvin whose influence has been one of the major impacts on the Korean church. And we are also grateful to God for the early French Protestants, Huguenots, who were inspired by the teaching and preaching of John Calvin. As we deeply appreciate their boldness and courage with strong faith in the truth, we greatly feel indebted to the French church because of what God has done in the past. We are seriously concerned about the spiritual state of France today and we long to see God empowering His church and raising up a new generation of Christians with the passion for Christ and the Gospel. We also believe that God has given a specific mission to France for the Kingdom of God, which is yet to be accomplished.
