Ministry snapshots from France

SU camps are managed by Le Rimlishof. Each year, more than 30 camps reaching over 550 children between the ages of 3 and 18 years old are organised. Over the years, more and more families have been touched by this ministry.

We now want to focus on the essence of our SU camps: what makes our camps SU Camps? In 2016, we worked with all our camp leaders on our SU concept of education, which had become very dated. We focused on the biblical approach to be used in our camps. The leaders worked enthusiastically on the project. Our two national SU youth ministry staff also helped the team to learn and practice new interactive ways of sharing the Gospel. The camp leaders did a very good job and came up with many excellent, original ideas. We enjoyed this preparatory work with them! For next season, we plan to increase the number of committed camp leaders, who will embody SU values and be ready to witness in camps.

Le Rimlishof accommodates about 10 refugee families, with a maximum of 40 people at any one time. They come from Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania and Sudan. We welcomed over 160 people in 2015. Each year a team of three half-time SU staff and one European volunteer work together to care for them. We are also helped by a lot of local volunteers and several regional and national organisations. Without this assistance we wouldn’t be able to continue this ministry. Thanks to all of them, we can provide the families with quality times and numerous activities such as: a cooking club, French classes, sports, distribution of food products twice a week.

A new law on refugees was adopted in July 2015 and as a result our mission has changed. Since January 2016, we are not only responsible for the refugees from day to day (their daily life) but also for their social and administrative care. Unfortunately, the French Government didn’t increase the budget. This has represented a very big change for our team, who have had to train as ‘social workers’. Our refugee ministry now continues with new challenges, new perspectives and new adventures!
