To Paris with Love!

The time has come for me to go to the mission field! Everyone laughs when I say that God has called me to France….Paris, France! And yes, it sounds funny! And yes, I happen to love shopping, wearing berets and having a croissant or 2! But the truth is that France desperately needs the love of Jesus….in a big way.

In a recent survey, only 21% of the population of France attends any kind of weekly religious activity. And Paris was ranked in the single digits! France is considered a highly liberal nation with statistics high in abortion, divorce, homosexuality and prostitution. My heart is to teach these precious young girls and women how valuable they are to God. They need to know that their bodies are valuable, their minds are valuable, their time here on Earth is valuable . . . and limited.

I never knew when I was 16 years old sitting in a French class at Crowley High School that God was “setting me up” to make a difference in the nation of France. This month, I am taking 7 ladies with me who have the same desire to reach hurting people with the love of God and we are going to be passing out my new book, Vous Avez de la Valeur a Dieu (You’re Valuable to God) all over the city. I am starting this outreach in the nation’s capital, Paris, and we’ll see where God takes us in the future. Who knows….maybe next year you can go with me!

Whether it’s on Le Metro, La Tour Eiffel, les cafes, a l’hotel, le bateau ou a l’eglise — French people will discover how to change the way they see themselves and realize that God considers them pretty special!

Please keep me (and the team) in your prayers as well as the services I will be preaching in at Hillsong Paris and Paris Centre Chretien. I will keep you updated while I’m there!

Merci de mon coeur (thank you from my heart) for believing in me and supporting this new outreach!

Much “amour,”

Terri

**Oh yeah -and did I mention that my Birthday just happens to be during this trip?! “Quelle coincidence!” (What a coincidence!) God is so awesome!

    Dear Terri,

    Great to hear that you would be travelling to France carrying the Love of Jesus. It’s so sad to hear that France is so liberal with statistics high in divorce, homosexuality and prostitution, but glad you together with other women are going there with a Message of love specially targetting women (also men). Terri you are an encouragement to many across the nations, to me personally. Keep going, the Lord is with you and all your efforts will be blessed much more for the extension of God’s kingdom.

    I am not sure when is your birthday, but, many many happy returns of the great day. Together with my wife – Vinitha, and two daughters Annie (15) & Abhishiktha Ruth (9) i wish you a God bless. Isaiah 41:10.

    Regards,

    Praveen Adams.

    Hey everybody,
    I confirm that Terri was (and still is!!!) in Paris, and she brought her lovely daughter Cassidy and friends with her! She came to share her message on our “sisterhood” night in church and she was AWESOME. We were practically all moved to tears and I know that a serious healing process began in a lot of us tonight! Thanks Terri for loving us, and for loving France. You are soo right about France – it is a country that is starved for God’s love – only that the people living here don’t know it – hence the liberation, the tolerance of anything and everything, the shrugging acceptance that anything goes…Thank you God for sending people like Terri to help gather the harvest – it is ripe but the hands that gather are so few.
    God bless you Terri and I can’t wait to hear your message during our Sunday morning service!
