This is the end of the chapter, we have found a house. It is the one in Pabu I posted about. The landlord has seen the recommendation letter from the mission and is happy to rent it to us. I am going to sign the rental agreement on 29th June, and we hope to move during the first week of August. We praise God for giving us this opportunity. The house is smaller than what we had been looking for initialy, but it will be easier to look for something bigger later, once we are settled in Guingamp.
Next stage is to find a school for Jean-Baptiste. There are two not to far. The first one in Guingamp, about 700m away, the other in Pabu, about 1km away. I’ll phone the Mairie on Monday to see what we’ve got to do.
Here is a map of Evangelical churches in Western Brittany. Now, you must realise that the country is about the size of Wales. Look at the pattern also: there is nothing in central Brittany.
Le Figaro, one of the French daily papers has an interesting article about the creation of the CNEF, a body that will bring French Evangelicals together before the media and the authorities. You can read it here (in French). Thanks to Alan for pointing it out on his blog.
This morning was Ysgol Melin Gruffydd Sports day. Jean-Baptiste was taking part, and I was able to be there as I was not working. The atmosphere was great with dozens of proud parents cheering the exploits of their little ones.
Maxime was eager to take part as well.
I work in an amazing shop called Costco where I do product demonstrations. Costco is the kind of shop where you can find all sorts of things. It is an american company so many products come directly from the States, and you will only find them there.
Amongst the products I noticed some time ago are two products that are actually made in Guingamp, the town where we plan to move. They are Madeleines, some sort of small cup cakes, and chocolate filled crepes. I find that very exciting, and never miss an opportunity to tell people about it.
