Feedback From Paris and South Africa – Debs Sudworth
In May of this year, Steve, Becs, Cade and I had the incredibly privilege to travel and attend an Equip Conference in Paris and then later to go on to South Africa where we were invited to run various meetings with the folk of New Covenant Church Bryanston, ending with Steve preaching on a Sunday.
The Equip in Paris was a vibrant and passionate week, as believers from all over the world gathered together and worshipped Jesus, mostly in French! Fred and Vanessa Dalais lead the church there and have recently seen amazing breakthrough after many years of faithfully sewing into the lives of the Parisians. It was such a highlight for us attending a packed church in a underground meeting space and join with them as worship literally rang through the streets of Paris!
We are going again in May 2018 and would LOVE to take a team with us. We have already heard from some of you that you are trusting to come. Please be praying about it and start saving!
After Paris, we were treated to two days in the South African bush, awaking at 5:30am to jump into a open Land Rover and look for animals while the sun rose behind us. It was spectacular and a huge answer to the silent prayers of my heart. Jesus knows what we desire without us asking for it. My first response was to burst into tears as I stepped into the lodge where we were staying and beheld the South African landscape which will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
Various meetings followed those two days of bliss as we joined the leaders of New Covenant Church Bryanston. What an impactful church filled with humble generous people using what God has given them to see the Nations reached! They have an enormous campus which inspired and stirred our faith to trust Jesus with Huge Dreams for Church in the City and the impact God desires for us to have.
It was such a rich two weeks for us and we were greatly blessed!
