Prayer is Power in France

As I write this I am pretending that you are sitting across from me at a local café that makes their own baguettes (because I might be suffering from French baguette withdrawal!), and that you just asked me about what God taught me through this trip.

God Cannot Be Stopped

In a country where the government regulates Christianity and where people cannot freely share their faith with others, I began to see that God cannot be restricted by anyone.
