The Mission Caleb 4.0 will bring new challenges, will be 3 cities impacted at the same time: Biel, Neuchâtel and Delémont.
During the 7th and August 23, the over 70 registered volunteers will develop various activities in the streets and public places delivering books, brochures and many, many hugs and smiles.
Altogether, the three cities together have a population of nearly 100,000 people. It will be a challenge to reach the hearts of these people, but certainly with the joy and testimony of volunteers and with their prayers, the Holy Spirit will work and we will have great results.
