Working with friends and family, Impact France has opened a fund to support the training of gospel ministers in France in honor of Edward Nelson.
We are honored to include a note from his wife Laura below:
Priez donc le Seigneur de la moisson d’envoyer des ouvriers dans sa moisson Matthieu 9,38
Ce que tu as entendu de moi en présence de nombreux témoins, confie-le à des personnes fidèles qui soient capables de l’enseigner aussi à d’autres 2 Timothée 2,2
As we come to terms with Edward’s tragic passing, we are inspired by the life he lived for Jesus and grateful for the outpouring of love we received. We miss him as husband, father, pastor, friend but also as a committed mentor for young ministers.
Everyone who knew him knew how passionate Edward was about the Gospel and for training workers for the harvest. The last sixteen years, he mentored and encouraged over 100 people to be trained for ministry in some capacity.
So desiring to obey Jesus’ teaching, to follow in Paul’s footsteps and to honor Edward’s life work, we are creating an organization that will carry on his legacy of training ministers to share Christ.
With approximately 1 church for every 32,000 people (compared to 1 for every 1,000 people in the US), France needs our help to train and send more of God’s workers on the field.
Thank you for your generous support and all praise to our great God for His Gospel.
