Impressions Team Accomplishments
June, 2014 B
Wheaton, IL, Bible Church and Topeka, KS, Bible Church


The team did a magnificent job installing, taping and mudding drywall, installing a new door, repairing the front door, installing wiring, repricing 2000 Mangas, preparing 10 pallets of materials for shipping, and conducting inventory of 11 pages of books and pamphlets.

The team also worked with FPC missionaries Charles and Sylvie Schott to distribute tracts in many villages around Champagnole.

The team helped push the broken van about a kilometer to get it off the highway and waited patiently for hours as alternative travel arrangements were made.

The team leader, who also happens to be the Office Manager for our US office, had many valuable discussions with key staff at BLF Europe as they look to make improvements for future teams.

All this work and still time to visit Paris, Reims, Troyes, the countryside around Champagnole, a Compté cheese factory, the boat lift at Strepy-Theiu and the Moulin de Marpent!
