After a smooth but sleepless flight to Paris, a warm reception in Tours by our host Dianne Parcher, two days to acclimate to the time change and enjoy this beautiful city, and enduring the hassle of a broken suitcase, we had our first ministry event Saturday at the regional Foursquare Convention.
Praise God for how His kingdom is advancing in France! The theme of the convention was growing into mature faith and action. During the morning session, a woman shared her testimony of how God miraculously healed her from a debilitating neuromuscular disease that doctors told her would be ultimately fatal. Jesus!!
During a late afternoon session, Jill and Denny had the opportunity to share about the global reach of Healing Rooms, their historical link with the Foursquare Church, how we minister to our community, and recent testimonies of God’s love and healing power working through our team.
Following our talk, Dan Lucero, president of Foursquare France, called for a time of healing ministry. Dozens of people received a powerful touch from the Lord, which began a steady stream of people coming to us for prayer for healing and impartation.
One woman approached us with pain throughout her body. We learned she had been rear-ended in a car accident a year ago. Jill shared a testimony of a woman we ministered to in 2011 who had endured multiple car accident injuries and how God miraculously healed her. The Lord directed Jill to minister to this woman the same way–help her forgive the person who hit her car, remove emotional trauma and afflicting spirits, and command her body to be healed. All pain gone. Jesus!!
We were blessed to make multiple personal connections we believe will endure and bear lasting fruit. Today we worshiped with the family at Communauté de la Re-Naissance, led by Pastors Pete and Gwynethe Cairnes, who asked us to share a preview of the Activating Dreams Experience workshop we will conduct there on May 25-26. We were also blessed to have lunch at the Cairnes’ country home along with Jean-Claude and Marie-Claire Buis, who lead a healing ministry affiliated with Reinhard Bonnke’s ministry, and Welars and Christelle Ubuzinda, members of Communauté de la Re-Naissance.
The week ahead: Monday evening we will join the Re-Naissance community for their evening prayer service. Wednesday evening we will meet with a group from one of the schools at which Dianne Parcher teaches. Thursday we drive from Tours to Draguignan, where we will be hosted by Fabrice and Natasha Barbier. We will conduct a full-day healing ministry training for 15-20 of their church family on Saturday and lead a healing service on Sunday.
We appreciate your prayer cover and following us in the journey God is leading us through in France.
Beaucoup de Bénédictions,
Denny and Jill
