As you plan your vacation for 2016, do something fresh and exciting! GO ON MISSION! Here are seven amazing destinations where you can go to recharge while accomplishing the Mission God has given all those who follow His Son daily!
God needs you to vist one of these 7 places this year:
Colmar, France-Thirty-five minutes south of Strasbourg and just over the border from Basel, Switzerland, this gorgeous and historic Alsacian town has been called "the most beautiful town in all of Europe". There is an amazing spiritual heritage in this particular region of France! Consequently, a New Testament church is taking hold here organically with locals; and you can encourage and study with some of our special friends and contacts even if you are just in the area for a week! We have a couple of great recommendations for lodging and meals!
Pau, France-In the Pyrenees mountains near the border of Spain, you will find yourself surrounded with palm trees, nice families, and amazing panoramic views in every direction! Make new friends and contacts, and encourage local church workers in this beautiful place!
La Rochelle, France-Spend a relaxing week on the west coast beaches of France visiting the historic old port, nearby islands, and local church workers. Situated near the famous Fort Boyard and charming Ile de Re, there is camping, rental apartments and inexprensive hotels depending on how long you want to stay. Encourage a local retired French Christian couple and help to make some new contacts in the area!
Baie St. Paul, Quebec-You will find it just one hour east of Quebec City. Watch the whales passing down the mighty St. Lawrence river, visit the art galleries, artisan workshops, excellent restaurants and enjoy summer camping or winter skiing! Enjoy having a coffee and meeting some locals! Be assured: God will use every personal contact and friend you make in this artisan village!
St. Pierre & Miquelon-Known as "France in North America", SPM is a trip back in time, when fishing and farming were the way of life. Get ready to feel on top of the world on these tiny islands hidden between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Bright colored houses, puffin islands, seals, sea lions, wild horses, high grassy dunes, white beaches and all things nautical flood your sight every step of your journey! Make a few new friends and plan to come back next year! We have a recommendation for a nice bed & breakfast!
Saba, Netherland Antilles-Perfectly situated near St. Maarten, this island looks like the end of a football sticking up out of the Caribbean. With awesome ocean views in every direction, you will be able to relax and enjoy the cool shade of the red roof, Dutch-tiled houses. In this friendly place, you will meet all kinds of people open to studying the Bible and talking about spiritual things. This may become one of your favorite get-away spots, and you may be able to help start a small church here!
Statia, Netherland Antilles-A favorite scuba diving destination, you will find lovely accomodations, tropical flowers everywhere, quiet beaches, excellent restaurants, and very friendly people interested in studying God's Word. Make as many friends as you can every day you are there!
