Montauban, Toulouse, and Bressols

In May and June, I had the wonderful opportunity to do a 2 month training course, the School for Kingdom Evangelizers, in Bressols, not too far from Toulouse.  The small town of Bressols doesn’t have much other than the beautiful Assembly Hall grounds, so we stayed in the nearby town of Montauban.  We were much too busy during these 2 months to do a lot of sightseeing, but here’s a few photos I took of Toulouse, Montauban, and Bressols.  It’s interesting how these towns are only about a 2-3 hour drive away from Montpellier, however the architecture is remarkably different.  While stone defines the buildings in Montpellier, red brick is characteristic of the buildings in this region.

When we first arrived, there a really bad pollen problem, which is why it appears to be snowing in this photo

I wish I had more time to explore around Toulouse, but unfortunately there just wasn’t enough time.  The city has a great energetic vibe, though.  I hope to go back one day and really visit the city.  And hopefully have some of the famous cassoulet!
