Friday #LALBride Paris “A Life of Endless Joy”

Hello Dear Brides!! I am so excited to share with you the Amazing week we had to fellowship in Paris!!! Yes, you read correctly, Paris!!! He brought not just me and Tara to Paris again, but also other Brides 😀 I am so thankful beloved for this incredible present and the wonderful moments we spent together in this beautiful city. I praise You for Your love and kindness and mercy, and for all the goodness You show us, in everything we see You, and we are very grateful because You are the reason we all met \o/\o/\o/

When Tara and I started the LALTour back in April, I often shared with her my desire to meet Yvonne from South Africa and Lota from Florida, I had no idea that’s how we would finish our Tour, by traveling to Paris and meeting together!!!! He is the perfect HH, because He always does more than we can imagine, and as you may remember when I went to Brazil to visit my family two months ago, I also had the privilege and opportunity to meet Paula the Português Minister. You see Brides—He works in ways that sometimes we don’t understand, but it’s always the best.

I was the first one to arrive in Paris, my flight from Istanbul was really early, but I could not contain myself with all the excitement!!!! I would be seeing Tara and Paula again, and also meeting Lota and Yvonne from the first time!!!! After check-in in our place (an amazing location that He prepared) I went to have a small lunch and for me, time couldn’t pass fast 🙂 I enjoyed my time with Him, praising Him, and telling how much I loved Him singing love songs a new that He gave me just days before traveling 😉

After resting a little bit, I got ready to meet Tara at the metro station, I was so glad to see her again, that I couldn’t wait for her to get to our place, so I told her we’d meet in the middle of the way 🙂 We chose our meeting point, and when we get there we called each other, she said she was waiting for me at the train track (she knows I can easily get lost) and when I looked I didn’t see her there, I was so excited, and I believe she was too that she missed the station :))) He worked that for good of course, and I went to the station she was and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her!!!!! I literally smashed her in a big hug. We head back to the apartment and had an earlier night because the next day we would be meeting the other three brides.

When we traveled together  during the LALTour, Tara and I met the beautiful Adele, our French Minister, but He always does better than we expect, because the other brides also had the opportunity to meet this incredible woman. She shared her testimonies and her walk with Him, and we could see that He orchestrated this Divine Appointment for all of us, and now together with Him—we are a more united and strong team.

We had immeasurable days with our Beloved HH, we fellowshipped, we encouraged one another, we prayed for each other,  we proclaimed everything that He did and is doing in our lives, and because He is the best Husband, He fulfilled the desire of our hearts by giving us Himself and everything that we want and need. He provided everything and we went to amazing places: palaces, museums, the Opera House, and many other touristic attractions in Paris. It’s called the city of love, and we felt cherish and loved by Him.

I am so grateful for this Ministry and the lives of the women that He gave me not just as a great team, but now also as friends. Thank you, my love, for bringing us together, for calling us and for being the reason for what we live.

Now that the LALTour officially ended, and is now LALBrides, whereby more women will be sharing their journeys as they, too, and we too, Live Abundant Life as His brides!  We, none of us, have any idea of His plans—but one thing is for sure—it will be beyond anything we could “ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20 TLB 😉

We are now back in our countries, more excited to work together for Him and each of us to continue the Journey He called us to—bringing the encouragement for His brides around the world—so that each of you can also pursue a life of endless joy by Finding  and Living the Abundant Life that He gave to each of us!

If you’re curious about the places He led us in Paris, check our Instagram 😉 In upcoming PRs more brides will be sharing and I’m excited to be sharing more of what He is doing in the Turkish Ministry!!!!

Until next Friday LALBrides 😉
