Our plan for Sunday morning, June 18, 2018, was to take public transportation to Biblical Baptist Church in downtown Paris. We ate a little breakfast at home, walked to the Mairie de Montrouge station to take the 4 train to the Raspail station, where we would catch the 6 train to the Pasteur station, right near the church building, which was a storefront in a very Parisian looking area (as seen below). One of the scenes unique to Europe are all the vespas or scooters, whole streets full of them parked back to back to back. We walked about half a mile from the station to get there and we got an initial taste of Paris.
The pastor of the French church also told me after the service that they are seeing receptivity to the gospel right now in France. My experience with missionaries in the past was that France is a cold, almost closed field. I was happy to see what I saw. It wasn't a gimmick there with that church and it was warm and alive. They were growing through loyalty to the Word of God.
It was a few minute walk on a beautiful Paris day to eat crepes at Creperie Du Manoir Breton for lunch. Was this anything special? It looked the part, because it was a genuine French crepe restaurant on the street of of downtown Paris.
The rest of the day we walked around these avenues and saw some of the impressive sites in Paris along Avenue des Champs-Élysées down to the Seine. We ate at Angelinas and walked to the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris along the Seine River. A walkway exists along the Seine leading from one stone bridge after another. Paris is unique and historic city.
