God in His awesome providence has elected, selected and sent to each one of us

people to help us, serve us, speak in our lives, make an impact in our lives.

directed or allowed to cross my path for a season or for life

Late Claire, my loving, fun, full of life friend of 95 years old. 

I had the privilege to lead her to Christ. When I came back from a trip to Europe, not knowing she was in a coma for days, when I entered her hospital room, she was unresponsive. At first, I thought she was just sleeping; then she opened her eyes, coming out of the coma, we talked, she accepted Christ as her Savior; and a few minutes later, she felt back into the coma and died within a month (when entered the room, the nurse surprised, to find her sitting in the bed talking to me, told me she was in coma for days). Now heaven is rejoicing of her childlike heart and her crystal-clear laughter. I can imagine her running from flower to flower, dancing, laughing; asking the angels and Apostle Paul all kinds of questions, loving on Jesus... laughing even more...

Thérésa (Tété), our trips full of laughter to Quebec City with Aline Legagneur;

then both of us to New York City, on very short notice, are memories that I cherish.

THANK YOU!

Thank you to each one of you for your rareness, your friendship,

the unique way each one of you loved or loves me; 

and for the many ways, you blessed me over the years.

Thank You To

Everyone Who Trusted Me with Their Projects

Thank you to my sister Regine. Her 1st wedding was my first official event as a wedding decorator.

Mr. Hubert Bangu (late) & Mrs. Therese Kitene-Bangu, thank you for trusting me in such an early stage with your big day!

 

Thank you to Pastor Franky Narcisse, who trusted me to transform and decorate his office. Apart from my family, it was my first interior decorating adventure. My goal was to create for him an office who looks like a presidential office, and by the grace of God and the creative power, He granted me, and the assistance of Mrs. Manon Raiche, Mr.  Josue Pierre-Louis and Miss. Jenny. When he saw the office for the first time: he lifted his hands and burst out into praises to God.  

His reaction was my biggest reward. 

Some years later, Pastor McEwen had a similar reaction: he fell on his knees and burst out into worship when he entered 

an amphitheater First Lady Loretta McEwen asked me to transform into a spa atmosphere for a renewal woman's meeting.

These kinds of reactions are priceless for me; because my greatest ambition in life is to be a finger pointed to God,

directing every eyes and heart to Him; bringing Him glory in everything.

Thank you to you all for these opportunities you gave me to glorify God through my work.

Thank you to Monica Alfred who connected me with Deacon  Andre and Deaconess Angelica Pindi to decorate their beauty salon. Decorating Camarra Beauty Salon was so far my biggest and most challenging interior decorating job.

I had to transform 3 floors of an empty house, into a chic 3 floors beauty salon: for men, for women, the spa + the owner's office). During that job, I've used many of my skills: from shopping good bargains, to choosing colors/materials, accessories, to sewing, designing and making columns... to cover walls with fabrics, as well as to cover old barber chairs, old front desk/counter and old sofas with new fabrics, for harmonization... It was challenging, but the Lord helped me.

The result spoke for itself. It was a great learning experience.

Thank You to 

Those who gave me a Word that shifted my thinking

& shifted me to the realm of expectancy.

Thank you to the countless people who spoke a word of blessing over my life or did a nice gesture: laughter, visits, gifts, rides... A special thanks to those who spoke a direct word of blessing or prophecies that deeply impacted me: The Word of God The Lord Almighty Jesus-Christ, Holy Spirit, my grandma, Pastor Franky Narcisse, Brother David Elie, Pastor Matthieu Anku, A guest speaker at La Prairie Church, three people at a Church in St-Hubert (MTL ), Pastor McEwen,  Dr Ralph Dartey, Sister Sandra Louis-Jeune, Deaconess Carmen Nesbett, Sister Annette, Mrs. Patricia King, Prophet Akosua Benson,  Pastor Liz Antwi, Dr. Israel Gimba, Dr. Diana Gimba, Pastor Paula White, Pastor Chris Phelefu, Pastor Caroline Phelefu, Pastor James Aumata, Mrs. Mariellet Agbor, Prophet Seth Bah, Mrs. Deborah Danie Hodgkins  and her sister Annie, Sister Cherylin Perkins, Apostle Frank Asare Nyamekye...

Millions of times thank you to each one of you. May the words God released through you come to pass.

And in return, may the Lord open great doors of opportunity for you and increase you in every way. Thank You! 

 

A Special thank you to

Mr. David Elie

(Église Évangélique Baptiste de L’Oratoire, Montréal, Can.)

Who deeply impacted my life.

When, When I was in my teen, in Montreal, he declared over me: Mark 21:42

“The Stone the Masons Threw Out Is Now the Cornerstone. This is God’s Work; We Rub Our Eyes, We Can Hardly Believe It”! (The MSG)

Year after year, among a few others, this timely word kept me going.

It gave me the dosage of hope and courage I needed to take one more step;

to make it through another year, against all odds, every time the going, the trials and setbacks were challenging and tough.

GRATEFUL TO GOD & HIM FOR THAT RHEMA WORD!

 

Thank You to the team at Christian Heritage Party

Mr. Rod Taylor, the leader

Mr. Peter Vogel, Mr. George and Cherie, Mr. David and Linda, Mr. Jack and Mary, Mr. Sean and Grace, Geofryde... Thank you to each one of you for your help and encouragement. You truly inspire me.

Thank you for your hard work and conviction that keep you building  the kingdom of God on earth.


 

Thank You, God

For each one who wronged me!

From the bottom of my heart I thank you because from what happened, I've learned to forgive, to give.

God caused good to come out of all of them.

I thank God for them because they kept me from relying on my own strength, wisdom, understanding.

They kept me in the place of prayer; they kept me humble, dependable on God.

 More importantly, they taught me vulnerability by choosing to let go and love again.

Today, I am better, stronger, and a bit wiser.

Thank Yous to God and to each one of you!

 

Thank You in Advance to

Those God Will Order My Step to

or Those, Sooner or Later, He Will Order Their Steps to Me.

and everyone not mentioned above. I thank God, in advance, for ordering my steps and their steps;

in order for us to meet for the purpose to give and bring glory to the Lord. 

 

Merci ! Mèsi! Thanks! Gracias!

I thank God profusely for Him and for the village of amazing people

who contributed to who I am today.

Those above were simple words; but, profound words of gratitude.

Somehow, even the smallest thing you did made a difference in my life.

Only the Lord can reward you.

May He bless you beyond measure,

May He give you your heart desires
