God has opened doors of opportunity in France for the International Christian Tennis Association. Answered prayers have brought a plan and a purpose for our tennis ministry. And through the dedication of a few people willing to walk in faith, a new ministry is growing towards not only the French Open, but to people in Paris, France.

Rachel Snelen, Emma Hustad, and I, Scott Paschal, are in awe of the opportunity God has placed before us as Christian tennis missionaries and tireless workers for the Kingdom. Rachel Snelen, such a special person who has dedicated her life, not to playing tennis professionally though she reached her lifelong dream of being WTA ranked, but to reaching and discipling WTA tennis players and top juniors for Christ.

And Emma Hustad, awesome… an intern with me who is dedicating her summer to helping me grow tennis ministry worldwide, and an amazingly bright, kind person full of hope and faith. She has brought a strong maturity to strengthen those around her and has reminded me of the standards I need to keep and why when choosing students and interns.

An amazing tour guide and photographer and ourselves spent 5 days following God’s lead as we discovered a plan God has placed in our paths. A kind, loving French pastor and his family showed among the most brutally honest Christian witness I have ever seen. And Rachel Snelen and Emma Hustad blew me away by their ability to go and grow and watch and learn and share…

These few pics are from the beginning of our journey to Paris and Roland Garros. I hope you enjoy them. They show our trip to Orlando Int’l Airport to JFK to Paris… and at the end of the gallery you will see a glimpse of what was yet to come.

God bless, Scott Paschal
