***A Retreat like “Open-Heart” Surgery***

I would like to thank Laurie Doden, Dave Patty and Mel Ellenwood for giving me the opportunity to have a spiritual retreat in the Czech Republic. It was a little like “open heart” surgery and I would like to tell you how it came about and what happened.
For about two years, God has been working in my life in order that I draw near to him so that I become more spiritual and closer to him.
Everything began with a couple’s retreat with Eric and Rachel Dufour and then followed with different times set aside to seek God and listen to him.
For example, recently, I got away from the Internet (without emails…) to peace and quiet for a time of fasting and prayer. Then, I had this opportunity to go to the Czech Republic and there, God did a deep work in my life.
He revealed himself as my father and he showed me that at every stage of my life, he had been present, even when I did not see him.
My perspective of the Christian life and of service for God changed and I know that I will never be the same! I realized the importance of taking time alone with God and of developing a relationship of love with him and real two-way communication.
Today, I would like for others to experience the benefit of spiritual retreats and in particular, the missionaries of the Top.
Thank you so much for your prayers. Leading a ministry like Top Chrétien – Jesus.net can easily absorb us and even submerge us, but nothing, absolutely nothing, can replace the presence and the love of God. He is my father (and yours) and I am so proud of him. Thank you, Daddy!

*** 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!
