Our ministry looks like a bicycle (or rather a tandem since there are two of us!).
We 'pedal for Jesus' across France and sometimes abroad.
The two wheels of our tandem are:…

We've been living in Sausheim, France since we got married (it will be 2 years in July). Our 'little nest' is nice, but a bit small. We'd like to find something bigger. We are looking to buy a house (with a garden) in a quiet place, close to nature, either in the Alsace region (where we are now) or elsewhere in France. Please pray with us that we can find just what we need.

It looked like a village when the 650 evangelical scouts set their camp out in the sticks near the Alsatian village of Pfaffenhoffer (yes, that's spelled with 5 'f's!).

4 days in glorious sunshine, both literally and spiritually!...

"LORD, SEND ME!"
"LORD, SEND ME!"

10 years ago, I was holding a workshop at the Ze Rencontre youth event in Mulhouse. Who would have thought that the pretty Chinese woman sitting in the audience would one day become my wife? And that 10 years later, for the 2024 edition, we'd both be holding a workshop together?...

ABOUT TIMOTHEE & YUKKI

Timothée Paton was born in the volcano region of Central France to

Scottish and English missionary parents. At the age of 4, he gave his life to Jesus.

He was 12 when he preached his first sermon.

In 1999, after serving as a pastor in France, Timothée flew out to serve in South-East Asia.

Over the years, he has travelled on every continent, speaking in universities, youth rallies, Bible schools, churches and in the media, challenging young and old to take the Gospel to the least, the lost and the last.

His book ‘ Leave The Shore!’ translated in several languages is a challenge to move out into the deep end of mission.

Timothée has witnessed thousands of God’s people step into the boat with Jesus for the greatest adventure of all!

He has spent 14 years in Phnom Penh then 7 years between Asia and Europe.

In July 2021, Timothée got married to Yukki who for several years served with Youth With A Mission.

They are based near Mulhouse, France ministering with WEC.

Yukki was born into a Christian Chinese family.

At the age of 3, she arrived in France with her parents.

At the age of 14, during an evangelistic evening organised in a theatre in Paris, she publicly stood up and gave her life to Jesus.

After graduating from a business school, Yukki started working in the event industry.

Alongside her secular work, Yukki was actively involved at a Chinese church in the Paris suburb.

In 2014, she felt a need for a completely different life.

The following year, she joined the Youth With A Mission Discipleship Training School in Hawaii where she answered God’s call to serve Him full time.

In July 2016, the young missionary landed in Cambodia and joined a team at the YWAM base in Battambang.

During her 5 years in Cambodia, Yukki set up two Christian cafés with the aim of sharing the Gospel in a pleasant setting.

After handing over to the Cambodians, Yukki returned to France in March 2021. On July 3rd, Yukki and Timothée said “yes for life” at the small Town Hall close to Disneyland Paris.

From their base in Alsace, they travel together throughout France and sometimes abroad to see people of all ages turn to Christ and step into their calling.”
