*** MonEglise.net is evolving ***

It is with joy that I announce the launch of the new version of MonEglise.net.  Accessible to all, this website is one of the major tools developed by Top Chretien’s team to proclaim the Gospel on the Internet. The goal is to bring the church to  Internet users so they say, “if that’s the church, I want MY church!”

The novelty is that live services will be available on mobile phones and tablets. The team is determined to develop means that meet the needs of Internet users today.

To fit the mobile format, the length of programs has changed: they will last fourteen minutes instead of forty-five. Now you can watch the message directly while on public transportation or on a break (thanks to the video podcasts)! This new version has brought about other changes available as of Sunday, June 5 at 8 h 00 (France time). Be curious!

We know the impact that MonEglise.net has on people’s lives and hearts. Many stories, some more amazing than others, encourage us each day. Here’s an example:

Testimony of an Internet user on MonEglise.net:

“Hello, I want to share my testimony with you. For over a year I suffered terrible back pain; it was so painful that I could not remain standing longer than five minutes. Last night, I happened upon one of the sermons on MonEglise.net “How to get out of failure, ” and at the end of the girl’s testimony, I prayed with faith. I assure you that God has completely healed me, and now I no longer have back pain. Glory to God and thank you for your work … May God bless you.”

I invite you to encourage people around you who have no church or who no longer have one to visit the website. The lives of so many Internet users have been changed; it is also possible for your family, your friends, your colleagues! We know that God works through the Internet, and we want him to act on your behalf, too.

I want to sincerely thank the Top donors, without whom projects like this one would not be possible. MonEglise.net studios were installed directly on the premises that we recently acquired through donations. Let all the glory be to God who continues to inspire us and allows us to implement all these projects. I sincerely believe he blesses a hundredfold our generous donors, especially by changed lives, and that makes me happy!

I speak for the whole team by saying that you are on our hearts, and we have high hopes for the impact of this new version of MonEglise.net.

Together for changed lives,

Eric Célérier

PS: What do you think of this new project? I look forward to your feedback!

*** Hope for the Arab World! ***

Not long ago I went to my local church, called Philadelphia. As I was going in, a lady called me: “Hello, my name is Shérazade. I am Algerian. Are you Eric Celerier?” “Yes,” I replied. She said, “It’s amazing. I come to this church for the first time and when entering I prayed to the Lord saying: ‘Lord, I found the address of this church on the Internet. I do not know if it’s a good church. Allow me to meet someone I know.’ And now you’re the first person I meet when coming in. I follow you every day on MonEglise.net. I became a Christian on Top Chrétien in my country, Algeria. Jesus is my Savior, but my boyfriend persecuted me. I fled to France. I arrive in this church and I meet you first. God is so good!”

I must admit that this is one of those encounters that illuminate your service and encourage you to continue your efforts regardless of the difficulties. Thank you, Lord, for this divine connection and for all the Shérazades who seek you in countries where there is little or no religious freedom.

And I’m sure this will not have escaped your attention. Things are happening in the Arab world! An unprecedented thirst for freedom has touched several key Arab countries (see Said Oujibou’s article about it).

We know the one who gives true freedom. Jesus said to those who boasted of being the descendants of Abraham: “So if the son sets you free, you shall be free indeed. ” John 8.36

With the goal of both making Jesus, the Son of God known to Arabs, and of encouraging all those of Muslim origin who now know Jesus as their Savior, a new program will be offered to you on MonEglise.net. The name of this new program is MaCasbah.net * It is designed by Agape Mosaic, directed and produced by Agape 4 Media, and animated by Said and Fatima Oujibou, a couple whose passion for sharing the good news to Arabs is well known.

Every Friday, MonEglise.net will be transformed into MaCasbah. We want this place to be a citadel, a fortress, a friendly place for those who need to be strengthened in their faith, especially if they are Arabs. Spread the word to your friends … Make it buzz. Yes, share the hope for the Arab world! On Friday on MonEglise.net/macasbah

* MORE INFORMATION:

A live casbah every Friday night in the heart of Paris sparked the idea to benefit Internet users. We, therefore, decided to establish a new program in the continuity of MonEglise.net: Macasbah.net designed by Agape Mosaic, directed and produced by Agape Media 4. Since quality involves work, not only two hosts are behind the project, but 40 professionals including the Cedars Studio, S2sound, and Gramophone.

MaCasbah.net is a broadcast rich in programs: Since there are different ways to share one’s faith, music and dancing are featured. From Oriental to Hip Hop to break dancing by twelve artists: Yamina, Nacera, Deborah, Djam’s, Thibo, Lorenzo, Dj Smooth LS, and the group members of Saccah Crew participate. Eight speakers who went from Islam to Christianity: Said, Azadeh, Yamina, Fabienne, Djam’s, Fatima, Lorenzo, and Yannis were invited for one purpose: to share their faith.

The broadcast will be unveiled next Friday, March 18, 2011. From casbah to casbah through MonEglise.net.

*** Let’s Share God’s Love! ***

MonEglise.net has just blown out its first candle: one year old already!

It’s time to take stock.

MonEglise.net in figures:

- 400,000 visits from 198 countries. France, Canada, Belgium, Ivory Coast, Switzerland, and Morocco, visited MonEglise.net the most.

- 50,000 people came directly  to MonEglise.net from the website ConnaitreDieu.com. (In English KnowingGod.net) That’s more than 100 people on a spiritual quest every day!

As a reminder, this is the first reason why MonEglise.net was developed – to bring the church to Internet users so that they say:  “If that’s the church, I want my church!”

But beyond numbers, which are always encouraging, what is important is that lives are changed. For example, this Internet user wrote to us recently: Thanks to “your website” I am born again. My joy is great, God bless you. God is great. He cured me of my depression. It has been one month that I no longer take antidepressants even though I took them for more than 10 years. God works miracles!

Wonderful, isn’t it? I invite you to watch this video clip for ConnaitreDieu.com! All excerpts are from recordings made for MonEglise.net.

Why not share this video with you friends?

So Happy Birthday to MonEglise.net and may God bless all those involved in this great project: the pastors, artists, technicians, partners, donors and the Top Chrétien team.

Let’s continue to share God’s love through MonEglise.net.  It’s worth it!

What do you think? I would welcome your feedback and comments on the subject.
