Didier & Donna Heslon
Donna and I have a vision to express the Hope of the Gospel through creative and artistic means. We have three children and live in Paris, France. Parisians and the French in general are very receptive to art and open to discuss deeper issues in creative contexts.
I, Didier, am a photographer by training and vocation and Donna is a creative consultant. She has experience in ceramics, painting, woodworking etc. Together we serve with CRU (Agape France) and long to see synergy among believers within Agape and outside our organization through partnerships with local churches, organizations and individuals. We have had opportunities to minister throughout France and in various sectors of the French church.
We also have a vision for discipleship which includes encouraging young artists to integrate their art and faith and to grow in their relationship with the Lord. We hope also to draw out the perhaps hidden or dormant creative gifts in the believers around us and awaken the local church to the potential of connecting with our Creator through artistic expression.
Individually, Our desire and prayer is to live as Christians who are growing and maturing in our faith and developing our artistic gifts and skills.
Please join us by praying that our lives be centered on the King of Kings, that we love the Lord with all our heart, mind and soul and that we would be about His business each day.
Pray that he would continue to form and unfold our specific arts vision.
Pray for protection from the enemy who has held influence over this country and esspecially much of the arts and does not let go of ground without a fight.
Pray for our family to maintain our unity and spiritual life in a dark and secular environment (especially for our children at school.)
Pray that the Lord would bring more laborers to work in the coming harvest here in France.
And please come join us 🙂 !
