When I was invited a few weeks ago to join the Christian gathering ‘Camp Eden’ I was hesitant since my body was still weak and my hands still in pain.

When a friend said he could take me in his car for the 3 hours’ drive all the way to Longuyon (not far from Belgium and Luxembourg) I decided to go.

For more than 17 years, every Summer, Pastor Vincent Fernandez and his wife organise the event at their church, out in the woods.

For that last week of July it was Sylvian and Lynn Freymond from YWAM Switzerland who lead the daily teaching and the worship.

What a great week! I rested, made new friends, saw my niece and ate great food (I’ve put on 3 kilos… still 5 to go to get back to the weight I had before the trauma).

Thank God, my health is better, strength is coming back and the pain is diminishing.

On Sunday I had the visit of Pastor Jean Paul (childhood friend) and his wife and of Emmanuel and Rachel (from Elim Bible College time). After church, my parents joined us all at a nice restaurant in Tourcoing. (We had so much to talk about, we stayed at the table till 5pm!)
