*** V.I.P. Red Carpet! … ***

The TOP Team

We always enjoy receiving visitors at Top Chrétien. And believe me, the Top Internet users are not virtual. They are as real as you and as me! Recently, we received Elizabeth Dugas, a volunteer for the Top. Here’s what she wrote after her visit:

This week I had the honor and the joy of visiting the famous “Top Offices”.

Like many of you, I watched the visit of the offices on video and followed with great interest the various stages of the purchase. All this on the Net.

But in reality … it’s even better than what I saw!

Carolle immediately came to meet me and, after going up the stairs, just at the bottom of the screen showing prayers of commitment on KnowingGod.net in real time and places, I was greeted by a scrolling message welcoming me personally. Long live technology!

Watching the video footage filmed during the purchase of the Top Offices, one could have thought that the team members had purposely made themselves available for the filming. However, in reality they all dropped their work to meet me. I am still very touched. It’s very moving to hear and see in person the brothers and sisters whose names I have read for years.

I visited all the former and existing offices and then, the other premises. The one thing in common: lack of space. I have no details, but working at 3, 4, 5, 7 (or more) in the same workspace without getting irritated is really a challenge. Each one having less than one square meter makes for very close quarters! The meeting room and kitchen/dining room: we cannot even mention. One can only go in and out on a rotating basis. Note: When entering to eat, you must be very careful or very humble, or both, because you cannot go in without bending over completely!

So then, the new office space? That means the rest of the house. Well, it brings the much needed additional space, especially a large, beautiful meeting room with a magnificent stone fireplace and picture windows overlooking the garden. The garden is very beautiful and very well equipped: normal because the former (!) owner is a florist. Palms, shrubs, flowers: a treat, especially on sunny days. Another plus: new offices could be built in the garden space to enlarge again because I suspect that the space may run out again someday.

The Top Offices: A nice house in a beautiful hidden garden in the middle of a very plain industrial area. It boggles the mind and, in fact, it is a dream come true, a true gift from God, who answered not only the needs but also gave beauty. God loves to give great, beautiful gifts to his servants.

Conclusion: I am very happy with my visit, very touched by God’s servants in this place to proclaim the kingdom of God on earth, and also, very proud that it is happening at home, in France. Once will not make it a habit although …

Just as for the reception at TOPC: “Be careful, you could get used to it!”

Thank you, for who you are and what you do, and thank you to the Lord, who has created this beautiful work!

Elizabeth, thank you for your kind words. With you and with each Internet user, we bless the Lord for the beautiful Top Chrétien team and for this workspace that God has put at our disposal so that his work could be extended. Glory to God!

Together for changed lives,

Your friend Eric
