Many such students and others have made their spiritual home with us, some for a few months, others for several years but all have been a means of blessing to us as a fellowship. If you're an English-speaker in Nantes, looking for a church, please understand that your presence at a largely French-speaking church can be a real blessing to those with whom you worship and serve, despite the language difficulties. Please don't underestimate the positive impact you can have in a local French-speaking church, even with your broken French and even if you are there for a few short months.
