I met John Piper

The folks I was staying with in Minneapolis go to John Piper's church, Bethlehem Baptist. They attend the Saturday night service. I was able to return from the memorial services about 2 hrs away from Minneapolis in time to make the service with them.

They first book I ever read about missions (back in seminary) was "Let the Nations be Glad" by John Piper. How cool to actually visit his church and hear him preach. It is a great church in downtown Minneapolis. They actually have 7 services in 3 different locations. Their church has a tremendous heart for world missions and John Piper has written several books that have been instrumental in the spiritual growth of many believers. It was cool to see such a divers groups of cultures and ages represented there.

Anyway, I met him after the service and told him about our plans to plant a church in Paris. I handed him an Avant Magazine with the France story in it. Who knows, maybe he will read it and get a passions for what we are doing in France.
