History: The DeWits spent 10 yrs church planting in Quebec, 22 years in overseas missions in Thailand. Now they want to serve the leaders of Paris, connecting with them, learning from them as they build Gospel movements that help their city write a better story.
1. Discipleship: This includes customized short-term residency programs, internships and experiential learning adventures in the urban setting of Paris.
2. Growing a faith-based community birthed organically from friendships and partnerships with neighbors, local groups, organizations, not necessarily within the already-existing churches, but definitely on Gospel mission to serve the city.
3. Teams: Leading and coordinating teams on intercontinental mission trips between Canada, France and Thailand.

Their main goal is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved so they minister to the people through using gospel tracts, explaining how they can be saved and how their lives can change for the better. After much prayer, they were given the idea of using the Jesus film produced by Campus Crusade. They purchased equipment such as a generator and sound system, lights, tables, a projector etc. and made 6' by 8' screen.
Israel - First Century Foundations

We are characterized by prayer, education and integrity, and we provide teachinng, media and support to Israel and the believers. Our desire is for Christians to better understand the Hebraic roots of their faith as they come together in prayer and support of Israel.
Joe Amaral - founder and director
I began to see Jesus from a Hebrew perspective and not from my usual North American point of view. When I got home, I began to gather every bit of material that I could get my hands on. I spoke with and learned from every Rabbi who would teach me. First Century, Hebrew culture became fascinating to me. I don't think Karen had ever seen me read so much—I read more than I had even read in Bible College! My eyes became opened to a whole new way of thinking about the Messiah—the Saviour who has a very timely plan for this earth; the One I choose to serve with all my heart for the rest of my days.
Clyde Williamson - father in-law of Joe
Having visited some 600-plus churches across Canada in the past 23 years, I have been able to share the amazing story of the growth and development of the Body of Christ, our Messiah, in Israel as well as seeing prayer groups established for ongoing intercession for Israel. The heart of this ministry has been the call to preach the Gospel with special emphasis on calling the saints to a personal devotional walk with the Lord Jesus Christ as I teach believers how to walk with the Lord through the Tabernacle from the Outer Court to the Holy of Holies.
