Last Saturday, as part of the Tour ‘C’est Toujours Possible!’, I went to speak to the youth in the evangelical church of Hazebrouck in Northern France.
A few days earlier, my mother was telling me that it was in that little town of Hazebrouck that she came in the early 60s. She spoke very little French back then, but she had decided to help a missionary couple Ira and Deborah Craddock.
Ira and his wife, both with the Lord now, are among those brave servants of God who in spite of indifference and hostility to the Gospel, persevered in their service in France and pioneered a church. In those early days they would go out in the region preaching with a Gospel tent.
M. et Mrs Craddock had two children: Paul (one of the leaders of the church in Hazebrouck) and Ruth (who married Cambodian pastor Arun Sok Nhep who translated most of the Khmer Bible).
Saturday night, Ira and Deborah Craddock’s grandchildren were among the young people at the meeting.
Please do pray for the many meetings still on the route of the ‘C’est Toujours Possible! ‘ tour.
