GJC (Génératon de Jeunes pour Christ) near Paris

2 weeks ago I had the privilege to attend a meeting of GJC (Génératon de Jeunes pour Christ)near Paris. We were recording the meetings with Davis Gates to make them available to the French speaking people. It was truly a blessed Sabbath :) It is a initiative of young people to start a similar movement and congress like GYC in the US and YIMC in Germany

Medieval Germany

On my birthday, October 3rd, we visited Maulbronn with its Monastery which is UNESCO world heritage site and just about 30 min from home. Here some pictures for history and architecture lovers.

The monastry was built in the mid-twelfth century!
the cross and the crucifix were made out of one piece of rock!

amazing carvings
amazing architecture
