My English editor told me that he was no longer going to reprint my comic books… Of 8,000 comic books, he still has about 2,600 left, I am going to see if I can buy them back… ouch!

I refuse to resolve to let everything crumble; I continue to believe that millions (for a start) of people are going to find Jesus through these comic books.

Lord, if this door closes, may it be so that another even bigger one opens somewhere else… 

David’s pals:Are you crazy! Fight against Goliath?! But he is so enormous!!!

David:Cool, in that case I won’t be able to miss!’

Young padawans

A young Christian managed to get me into his comic book school. I was able to witness to his whole class, in spite of the teacher being visibly ill at ease about God being talked about so freely in his class.

By contrast, the students all looked really moved.

Lately I have been coming across talented young Christians saying to me that they want to follow in my tracks (hey, I’m going to have to wipe my feet then!).

It didn’t matter how hard I tried to explain to them that it was a life of hardship, taunting, uncertainty, impossible struggles, spilt inkpots, that the choice of loving Jesus and the lost was a choice of suffering, that a soldier who is dead to himself is the only one who frightens the enemy… 

It was no use! I didn’t manage to discourage them (so much for that)! So I prayed for them…

Englan Tower

bananier2b wI have a banana tree in my studio. (normal for a comic book workshop)! Each time I transplant it into a bigger pot, it grows until its roots finish taking over the new area of soil. (Aaaarg… STOP! Stop growing!) NO ROOTS, NO FRUIT What is vital in a tree is what is not seen… In our case, humans (as far as giraffes are concerned, I am not too sure…), it’s intimacy with God! The more you extend your daily quality time with him (not just: ‘I pray when my wife is driving’ or ‘while I am brushing my teeth’... The more you will grow… And the more bananas you will have in your life (and bananas … they’re so good!)! Today I am walking in the forest once again… My path always goes through there (Oh that it had done a sudden runner to the Bahamas during the night…)! The morning, in perfect complicity with the dew, coats the sides of the path with a glistening sparkle! I ask God for nothing… other than to be closer to Him… ‘All fullness dwells in Jesus’, Colossians 1:19 (a passage in the Bible). Piece of advice for a ‘smart perspective’: if you have Jesus, you have everything!! Suddenly on my path I see something amazing: thick, visible roots… …that perks me up and I get a ‘banana’ smile! P.S. I have planted lots of baobabs (that’s one of the biggest trees in the world!) all over my studio, but I no longer know where…Well, they are really tiny seeds…Oh dear! I have a hunch that they also have something to say to me …With all these plants with the gift of the gab surrounding me while I make comic books, there is a cacophony!
