Hi, I'm a new member of this board. My name's Mathias, i'm 36, and was saved 14 years ago. I'm french, and live near Nîmes, in the far south of France. I was born in 1973, in near Lille (northern France), in an atheist family. My parents (and grandparents) are communists, and then, God had no place at home. I grew up, studied litterature and languages, Law at university, and finally became a computing technician, and now am a system administrator in an aeronautics company whose main job is to train french and foreign Air Forces in electronic warfare and target training. I belong to the french Alliance Baptiste de France (ABF), which could be considered kind of fundamentalist church (no speaking in tongues, no women preaching, etc ...). Since i moved to the south, i haven't found any church yet, so i decided to join this board to keep in touch with my christian brothers and sisters. God bless you all !
