*** 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.

This video was embedded using the YouTuber plugin by Roy Tanck. Adobe Flash Player is required to view the video.

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.

*** Pastor Mamadou Karambiri Sends Out an Appeal ***

Pastor Mamadou Karambiri has sent out an appeal from Burkina-Faso to all French-speaking Christians. He has been Top Chrétien’s friend for many years. He has supported this ministry with his prayers, with his advice to the leadership team, and now, with this video.

His Story: Born into a very devout Muslim family in Tougan, in northwest Burkina-Faso, Pastor Mamadou Karambiri was initiated from his youth into Muslim traditions and reading Koranic verses in the city of Bobo-Dioulasso. At the age of ten, he came into contact with Christianity when he hid so that he could go to his village’s Catholic mission and read the journals about the martyrs in Uganda and other magazines about the baby Jesus. These stories made an impact upon him as a child. As it is for every good high school student, sports activities, especially handball and basketball, began to monopolize his soul. God and religion took second place in his life, and it was in this atmosphere of spiritual darkness that the Lord delighted to reveal himself to him in Toulouse, in June 1973, while he was studying econometrics in his last undergraduate year.

Lay preacher since January 1977 and Minister of the Gospel full-time since January 1990, Mamadou Karambiri was recognized and established as an apostle in January 2004, made “Knight of the National Order” by the President of Burkina-Faso in December 2005, and elevated to the rank of Doctor of Divinity in July 2007 by LOGOS Christian University of Florida. Trained as an economist, he was successively Director of Trade Promotion at the National Foreign Trade, Commercial Director of Faso Fani (the National Textile Company), and Director General of Faso Yaar (the largest distribution company in the country at the time). During his career, he has also served as Vice-President of the Economic and Social Council, Vice-President of the Chamber of Commerce, and Chairman of the Board of the Airline Company “Naganagani.”

Pastor Karambiri continues to travel the world today, especially the French-speaking world, to announce the message of salvation. He preaches the Word of God at Bethel Israel Tabernacle, the Church headquarters of the International Center for Evangelism. See the website http://www.cie-mia.org

Pastor Karambiri addresses French-speaking Christians with a solemn appeal and challenges us. After watching this video, if the Lord calls you to act, you can do so by clicking here.

I pray that thousands will rise up and respond to this appeal. And you, what will you do?

*** God is going to visit Turkey ***

Ephesus, Colosse, Philadelphia, Laodicea, Antioch… do these names mean anything to you? If you read Paul’s epistles in the New Testament, you are familiar with these names. But did you know that these cities are geographically situated in what is Turkey today? One of the cradles of Christianity has hardly any Christians today! In Turkey, Christians represent less than 1 in 1000. Of the 72 million inhabitants, 99% are Muslims and only 4,000 are protestant Christians!

Sunday, April 18th, was a day of prayer for Turkey. On this date, only three years ago, three of our brothers were assassinated in Turkey because of their faith and their commitment to the cause of the Gospel.

The blood of the martyrs is also a seed of life. When we launched the KnowingGod website in Turkish, the number of Christians was estimated at 3000. That was in November 2008. Every day the Turkish Internet users’ thirst to know Jesus astonishes me. In 18 months, the website has received more than 1.5 million visitors from Turkey. Of this number, more than 100,000 have indicated a desire to go further in their spiritual walk with Jesus. Our on-site partner has followed up on more than 13,000 people.  For many Turks, the Internet is the only means of knowing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Of course, we have met with a lot of opposition, and Turkish hackers are having the time of their lives trying to “sink” Allahitanimak.Jesus.net. Fortunately, Megaphone is very effective in managing our servers.

I believe that God is going to visit Turkey again, and that the church is going to be reborn from its ashes in Turkey. I believe that the Internet is going to contribute greatly. Besides, we have just launched a new website to follow-up on all those who have visited the KnowingGod website in Turkish.

This site in English, called Why Jesus?, is a four-week course. In certain countries, it has been unbelievably effective with up to 80% of the participants joining a local church or an Alpha Course.

Would you take a moment and pray for Turkey? Watch this video. I am sure that it will motivate you to pray for the people of this great country.

Leave a comment, a prayer, or an encouraging word on this blog for our brothers and sisters in Turkey. We will send these to them.

With you in the harvest,

Eric
