You had questions; Team France answered them.
What’s the experience in France like so far?
We’ve been loving it. The language, the atmosphere and the people are all lovely. Despite early apprehensions, I’m really enjoying being in France- Caitlin
Most embarrassing moment so far?
Too many to count, honestly. The most embarrassing moment was probably when I was manically dancing to ‘Hey Ya’ in the supermarket and the cashier was watching me on the CCTV. -Esther
New favourite French food?
Choquettes. They’re simple but delicious.-Jonny
How have you found it going to a church with a very small congregation?
Really good, because we get to know everyone. -Tafadzwa
What’s been the most unexpected moment so far?
In all seriousness, it’s surprising that we’re in such a well known and expensive city yet see so much poverty. -Caitlin
What’s the best thing about living in Paris?
The flippancy of just turning up to see a famous landmark on any day of the week. Plus under 26’s can get into virtually every tourist attraction for free! -Esther
Which one thing do you miss most from GB?
The variety of food you can make. French people tend to make French food or food from francophone countries. -Jonny
What particular difference apart from the language have you noticed about France?
For me, people tend to be more affectionate and touchy-feely.-Tafadzwa
How have you seen God at work so far?
Within the team as well as with the people we’re working with. It’s in how God changes our personal attitudes and attitudes to faith. God is in the community and many people have questions and are happy to talk about faith. God seems to come out in every situation a little bit. -Caitlin
What’s been the most important thing you’ve learnt from Action Teams so far?
Working as a team can be really hard work, even if we love each other. Spending all our time together can cause stress and arguments, but the important thing is to remember why we’re here and why we all care about each other. -Esther
What’s your favourite word in French?
I don’t have one but if I had to choose, “pomme de pin” the word for pinecone which translates to Apple of pine or pine apple.-Jonny
Who is the most inspiring person you have met so far?
Christine, our supervisor. -Tafadzwa
