Paris Ministry Update

I love being here! I love this city! I love these people!

This has been such a great ministry trip. The meetings have been amazing! Hundreds of people have come to the altar ready to be free and pursue God’s plan for their life.

I have to say a big thank you to all of you who have helped get my book, You Are Valuable to God translated and printed in French. It has been a wonderful tool at the churches and throughout the city.

One of the pastors told me when we arrived that the French may not be receptive to being handed my book. He even suggested extra people come with us for protection. I told them that I’m not going to stand on a street corner and yell about hell and heaven! So, we were warned about possible attitudes concerning being handed a book about God.

We have handed them out on Le Metro, in line at The Eiffel Tower, up and down the streets, on park benches, homeless people on the streets, beggars, tourists, people in cafes, waiters in the cafes, in taxi cabs, the artists at the Sacre Coeur, storeowners, etc. Many, many, many have been receptive and began reading it on the spot! It was awesome to see them reading it immediately.

Yes, there have been some who rejected the book. They laughed and said “Non, merci.” I said, “Jesus t’aime” (Jesus loves you) and they acted like it was a joke. But we sowed a seed.

Yesterday, shopping down the alleys near Sacre Coeur, I went in to buy a shirt and the store owner said, “I give you discount!” I said, “Ahhh..merci!” He said, “Vous parlez a Dieu” and he pointed to my book. He had already been handed a book by one of the ladies on our team! He pointed to my picture on the back of the book and said, “C’est Vous!” (That’s you!) I said, “Oui, c’est moi!” He said in French, “Because you talk about God, I give you a discount. Many people in Paris do not talk about God.” He said he will visit my website!

Ahhhh……thank you, Jesus! We’re making a difference in Paris, France one life at a time!

I will update you more later. I’m walking in a dream!

    Dear Terri

    I had attended your meeting for the ladies at hillsong Paris, France. I am so thankful to god for sending you at the right time. I have been tremendously blessed by your message on the 25th of september 2009 and also the following sunday. I watch you and your dad on the internet. But it was through you, god delivered me completely from my past emotional wounds. You are great, your message was great. May god use you more and more for His glory. You are such a blessing to me. Simple message but with power. I had been with this emotional wounds for more than 10years. Inspite of prayers, fastings and listening to tapes, I would be relieved for some days and then back to the past. But that day the 25th of septmeber 2009, it was a new beginning to me. I felt great relief, something that was bothering me all these years, and blocking me from god’s best was completely removed and I was transformed to a new person. Once again I thank god for you, for the hillsong church, Paris France and also for my nephew who had brought me to your meeting. May god bless you.

    Dear Terri

    I was at Hillsong Paris on 25 Sept when you were ministering to the woman. I was on attachment to an international organisation based just outside Paris for the month of September. I believe when you were praying for this meeting you were praying for me to be there so that God can close a chapter from my past in my life. God used you to completely close a chapter in my life of hurt that I honestly thought we had dealt with together with God before. I now know I am free from the past hurt and disapointments from myself and also disapointed at God. God and Me are now walking together really in love. You made me see how much God loves me. I know that the chapter is closed because as soon as I got back home in South Africa something happened that reminded me of a moment in that chapter, but the pain was not there. Also the messages on the CD’s you brought has helped me a lot. God bless you.
