3 pack days in the Indian ocean

After less than 8 hours flight I landed last Thursday on the French Island of Réunion, not too far from Madagascar.

The 3 days ‘‘Lumière de Pâques’ (Light of Easter) Celebrations kicked off on Saturday in Saint Denis, at one of the stadiums. For this 29th edition, the Assemblies of God of La Réunion invited me to preach the Gospel Saturday evening and Sunday evening.

Each meeting was entertained by great Gospel music groups and choirs, often sang in the local Créole dialect. A lot of life and rhythm!

On both afternoons I gave a ‘GospelTALK- Captivate Your audience’ training. Almost 400 people from various churches on the island joined the seminar to be better equipped for public speaking.

Sunday morning I was privilege to preach at a large Assemblies of God church: One thousand Christians packed the building. A great service with 9 believers getting baptised.

During those 3 days I was able to share my testimony and answer a few interviews on radio, internet and local television.

Monday morning some local authorities came to the final meeting in the stadium including a lady who was a minister in the previous French government. Each one got a copy of ‘Quittez la Plage’ (‘Leave the Shore!’). All 500 copies of the book were sold.

I really want to thank Pastor Jean and Pastor David for their very warm welcome. Both are sons of the well-known missionary and revivalist Aimé Cizeron.
