*** The TOP! It's Each One of Us! ***

Yesterday, someone asked about the campaign for donations to purchase the Top Chrétien offices. I thanked the person. He answered, “You don’t have to thank me because the Top, it’s each one of us!”

He’s right! The Top is like a living building consisting of its members. Pastor Yvan Castanou told me, “Each Internet user must understand that he is a living stone in the building you want to buy.”

Do you feel that you are part of Top Chrétien, of its history and of its future, or are you just a user/consumer of the Top?

As of today, nearly 2000 Internet users have understood that they’re the Top. They have understood that it’s a collective work that we are building together. What an encouragement for our team! How we praise the Lord for their support!

The Top actually counts tens of thousands of daily users. Imagine if each one brought his little stone to the building. We could construct the house pretty quickly! Imagine that each one realizes the opportunity to invest by sowing seed in a ministry of evangelism like the Top! So then millions of people could be reached and discover faith, perhaps even their own families! It’s today that we need you and your step of faith, for tomorrow will be too late.

Mohammed Sanogo has captured it well. Watch this video and you will understand why this former Muslim, now a pastor, thinks that the Top is each one of us.

If you are part of those who haven’t yet sown seed for the purchase of the Top offices, could you take a moment to ask God what you should do?

The Top is you, too!

P.S. Testimony of an Internet user: ” At our small level we made a gesture that has given us joy. The Top is a blessing for the French-speaking world and for the entire world through KnowingGod.net. … May the abundance of the Lord be poured out over all of you. Gaël

*** Persevere! ***

Oh yes! How we need perseverance: perseverance in trials, perseverance during sickness, and even perseverance when everything seems to be going well. The Bible says that it is by persevering in doing well that we inherit the promises!

And so, I would like to encourage you to persevere. Top Chrétien’s story is one of perseverance. If Top Chrétien still exists today, it is because many times we have had to persevere and wait for God’s help. And his help never fails to come! Someone once said that God’s help sometimes comes late but never too late! It’s those who persevere who are helped!

Jesus has often encouraged me not to give up ! And I have to admit that I have sometimes felt like it… May the one who has never felt like giving up, please tell me. I would like to know his secret.

A song has encouraged me during the years of sickness and opposition. It’s “Persévère” by Olivier Cheuwa. I even made it the ring tone on my telephone! Therefore, every time someone called me, even for a problem, I would let the phone ring a few seconds and I would hear:  persevere! oh oh, persevere… In this way, I was ready to face any situation.

Just recently, I discovered another song on perseverance composed and sung by my friend, Pastor Mohamed Sanogo of the Ivory Coast. I asked him if I could offer it to you. He said yes, so here it it, especially for you Top Blog readers whom I love so much. Mohammed and I dedicate it to all those who need to persevere. My friend, persevere!

This song is part of the album “Persévérez” available on Top Boutique
