In the passage above, Jesus was sending His disciples out into the world to proclaim His name. John 4:35 says, "...look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest," and we feel that God is going to use us to do something great in a field where the need is great. The work will be hard, but we have faith that the harvest will be plentiful.
Paris is a mission field that has been neglected for far too long because of the difficulty in producing results. We are praying for amazing things, expecting God to do them all, and putting in the work needed to see our goals accomplished. Twenty years down the road, we want to look back and see the people reached, churches planted, and lives changed; and we will praise God because He did it all.
