GOD'S BURNING DESIRE FOR US
THE GLORY OF GOD
QUALIFICATIONS FOR BEING A WORLD-CHANGER
Since January of 2012 I as well as the ministry
have been in transition, when the Lord spoke that He would switch
priorities around - from Mali being first and itinerant second,
to itinerant first, and Mali second. First that seemed outrageous,
but God kept confirming it, and weeks later, renewed
my calling to Europe.
added another dimension to the ministry with Healing
2 Body & Soul, leading me to become a personal
fitness trainer, and to learning all about essential
oils to bring healing to the body. It's been a great journey,
and the fruit is starting to show!
another level, the itinerant ministry of ministering to the Western
church has gone to a whole new level this
year. I could already see the change before being commissioned as
an apostle in June, and these past few weeks, I've been even more
amazed watching God's presence coming down with power!
It's a new day for me, and for H2TNI, and there are very exciting
I share with you about some recent meetings, I want to focus on
the meetings held at a little church of on fire Christians in the
center of France, in Angoulême.
first night was not part of the revival meetings, but added later
and open to everyone. It was my first time at the church, and I
could already tell that those believers loved God and His presence.
After a short worship time, I started teaching on the oils
of the Bible and passing around the oils for everyone to
put a drop on their skin, to smell them, and to let them do their
work. It was like God anointed us with oil from heaven
as we did, and a few people were laughing in the Spirit, while others
found relief from physical problems.
writes, Claudia enlightened us about the possibility to return
to the knowledge of the benefits of plants that
God created on the earth for our health.
writes, I waited impatiently for the message on the oils, as
we've been wanting to treat ourselves with plants for a long time.

I'm open for any invitations to come teach on the
oils of the Bible, in English, French or German.
BURNING DESIRE FOR US
official start of the weekend was on Friday night. We had a great
time of worship with His presence coming down.
There is nothing like being in His presence, and I enjoyed lying
on the floor with Him, letting Him fill me and speak to me, and
prepare me as His messenger.
introducing the ministry, and telling about the
events in Mali, I did what I always do in France these days - thank
them for saving our lives in Mali (when the French intervened
1-2 days before the Islamists would have taken the capital), and
for giving their lives for us (as a French soldier died the very
first day). Every single time, I choke up and God
uses it to minister to His French children, even giving them love
for their new president they did not elect. He's also used it to
give me a deeper love for France than I've ever
had before. Maybe that's why the meetings are so much more off the
charts in France than elsewhere these days.
then started preaching on God's burning desire for us,
speaking about His broken heart for those who don't know Him, His
desire for all to know Him, His joy when we become His children,
and His delight to put His great plan for each of us in action.
I spoke about His longing for us to spend time with Him, be
lovers not just servants, and challenged all of us to "be"
rather than "do" all the time, and respond to His call
for us to spend time with Him.
more I spoke, the more His presence increased,
ministering to His children and creating a new hunger for intimacy
with Him. When I got to pray for them individually, His power
fell, prophetic words of life were given, and lives
were transformed. What an awesome first night!
GLORY OF GOD
continued Saturday afternoon, and again His presence filled
the place during praise and worship. While I was on the
floor with Him, He showed me a vision for the Church in
France, and that church in particular. When I released
that word later, God touched His French bride, and in particular
the pastors, powerfully. Glory!
meeting started at the level we had finished the night before, and
the more I spoke about His glory, and His invitation into His glory,
the more His presence and glory increased in the
room. Some people had their eyes closed, encountering Him, others
were clearly being touched by Him. Higher and higher we
went, and at the end, as I laid hands on everyone, prophetic words
came, His glory fell, His people fell, until most
of the church was on the ground in His presence. There's nothing
like His manifest presence! There is nothing I love more
than being His conduit for His presence! I was so reminded of the
renewal days of the 90's that I'm a fruit of.
Magali writes, Claudia took us into the glory
in the Temple. I could feel the weight of the kabod of God
where we were. In reality we were not in that place any more, but
in God's presence, a higher place. And there were also precise prophetic
words coming straight from the mouth of the Lord.
QUALIFICATIONS FOR BEING A WORLD-CHANGER
Sunday morning we continued flowing in His river,
though our bodies were tired, and again we went higher in
the Spirit. I spoke about Moses as an
example of a world-changer, a man whose pride was broken, a man
who lost everything, his people, his status, his calling, and that
is exactly when God called him ready to become
what He had always meant him to be. I shared from my life, shared
that God's qualification to be used is found in
1.Cor 1:27-28 - a verse I always write when signing
my book - therefore God can use anyone to do anything. Nothing
is impossible with Him! As I spoke, I could see
hope restored, dead dreams come back to life,
and callings being believed again.
I had done the previous meetings, after speaking, I started praying
and speaking out what God was showing me for people in
the room. I was also singing prophetically, as
God ministered to His people. His presence was building up, and
I could tell He was up to something. Sometimes
there is just the right time for the explosive release of what He
wants to do. That morning, He wanted to give an impartation
to His children. So they lined up in the front, and the moment came.
His power was released, touching His people powerfully,
every single one of them (f)lying to/on the ground being ministered
to. So glorious!
few testimonies from the whole weekend:
writes, I experienced something powerful in the Spirit
concerning the mantle and the love of the Father for my life personally
as well as for France. God gave me a vision that
revealed the mantle of the Father coming on the nation of France
and that He'd remove the spirit of abandonment. As a fruit I now
have a greater intimacy with God, the Father, in
my daily life, and I feel closer to His heart.
The fire of my passion for Him was also reactivated
in me on a more intense level. I've experienced something powerful,
and I've really felt an impartation of glory. The
glory of God was so tangible.
writes, Through Claudia Jesus had the barriers that were still
around me broken down. I saw them on fire; they
were consumed and I was in the middle. I now feel a freedom
that I did not have before. I also discovered that I desired
being the lover and friend of Jesus. I thank Claudia for being an
obedient instrument for Jesus, of humility, and faith that is so
at all the pictures from the meetings in Angoulême here.
I'm planning my itinerary in the US and Europe
next year, feel free to email me if you would like
me to come to your church. God is such a glorious and awesome God,
and He loves to meet His children and draw them closer to Himself!
- I cannot thank enough those who've given to help us in this
financial crisis with school and accident expenses.
Unfortunately we're still a few thousand dollars/euros
short. Please consider sowing into the harvest in Mali,
and the future leaders of Mali!
Anniversary Conference - In two weeks our big annual
conference starts. This year our speaker is pastor Ian
Campbell from PA, and he'll be the first one to preach
in French during those meetings. Pray we can do our best with
the little money we have, and that God would come in power to
save, restore and heal!
at YWAM - Joseph's discipleship school in Dakar
starts January 13th and lasts 6 months. He's
been an invaluable help to Paul in the midst of the recent crisis,
and has a heart for Timbuktu, possibly being
our indigenous leader for the planned center there.
Possible - Just before returning to Mali I spent a week
in Holland representing Mali at this unique conference
about reaching the unreached with the gospel. It was a time of
divine connections, and I'm curious to see the
fruit to come out of it in the time to come.
- Back in Mali, the TV crew doing a
documentary about us will start shooting soon. They also have
it on their hearts to intervene on behalf of us on the government
level so we get financial support. Pray for favor
and a positive documentary for the glory of God.
one - After 20 years as a Christian, never dating, always
single, God has fulfilled His promise and brought me together
with the one He has for me. Pray for God's will
to be done in our lives.
- We always need volunteers in Mali who can stay a few
months or more. If you'd like to come help us, please contact
