[France] More than 60 people celebrated International Women’s Day of Prayer in Paris, March 16, 2019 at the Seventh-day Adventist Church at Place d’Italie. Corina Timofté, the new director of women’s ministries in France and Belgium was invited to speak for the morning service. As many people do not know what Women’s Ministries actually does, Timofté explained the work and mission of the department. Many of those attending the seminar requested copies of the Timofté’s PowerPoint comprehensive presentation.

Many men who attended the service came to Timofté afterward to thank her. The small giveaways prepared for women also caught the attention of men who were present. Some had come without their families and asked to take home surprise gifts to present to their wives.

After the church service all were invited to partake of refreshments and enjoy companionship.

Timofté also invited colleagues from her place of work. Three of them came to an Adventist church for the first time. She praises God for giving her the strength to present her topic with a heart filled with joy.
