I have two things to testify:

  1. I was sick last week.
    On Monday, August 25, 2014 and Wednesday, August 27, 2014, I could not come to the Bible Study and Prayer Services because I was not in a good condition. Actually, I had been sick since Sunday, August 24, 2014, but I was still able to go to the church. When I came home from the church, my condition worseneduntil Tuesday.

    I had diarrhea.
    Actually, the diarrhea was not so bad, but I also had some pains all over my body, on my chest, stomach, and my back. I also had no appetite. It made my condition become so weak and powerless.

    It got worse and worse, and it was almost unbearable on Tuesday night.
    In that condition, I could do nothing. I could only pray in my heart, say 'Jesus' name', and ask for forgiveness if there were still many things that did not please Him, and I looked into myself, maybe there were hidden sins that I did not confessed yet.

    I also asked God to show me, the things that He had wanted me to do, but I did not do. I did not get any response yet.
    On Wednesday morning, it was about 2 a.m. or 2.30 a.m. and I was awoken because I had a stomachache. I went to the toilet and I still had diarrhea that morning.

    I went back to my room and I prayed that morning. When I was praying, it seemed like I heard a voice "Testify, testify!"twice.
    I understood that it was what God wanted me to do. God wanted me to testify.

    It had been a long time that God put in my heart to testify His love and His greatness that I had experienced in my life, but I always postponed testifying it because I was shy, and a lot of other reasons. I realized my fault, and I fell down under God's feet and asked for His forgiveness and promised not to postpone my testimony.

    Around 4 a.m., after I prayed, I went to the toilet again.
    It was really out of my prediction, I had no more diarrhea. It stopped immediately after I realized my fault, asked for forgiveness, and promised to do God's command. Right now, I am totally fine and I have no diarrhea.

    It was not a coincidence and not because of medicine, but solely because of God's help, because I had realized what He wanted in my life. The pain all over my body gradually became less painful and I regained my appetite, and now I am healthy and I can come to the church again.

  2. I give thanks to God for His grace and mercy that brought some of my family and me to be able to come back to this church. I say 'come back'because I had been here when this church had just been opened.
    Everything happened because of God's grace and mercy, and not because of my will at all. I did not think to come back to this church. It was God Himself, with His way and His power, who brought us here.

    At the beginning, I did not think that I would come for 3 kinds of service. I thought I would only come on Sunday. However, when I listened to God's word, I was captured by Himand I could not run away. The Holy Spirit pulled my heart to come to the Bible Study and Prayer Services, and I could not resist it.

    I am so fervent in every servicein the shepherding, as if I do not want to miss a single word.
    I feel that I am like a child receiving a party invitation from her friend who does not want to miss it. I come to the church without coercion from other people, I get directly into the shepherdingand I am really happy.

    I was so weakwhen I started to come to this church. I was so weak because there was something wrong with my heart. I kept on coming with a jacket and a scarf. I reached my worst condition at June 15th2014. On Friday, June 13th, 2014, I felt that my condition was getting worse. I rested on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning, hoping that I could get better on Sunday afternoon and I could go to the church. On Sunday afternoon, I was not getting better. However, I did not give up, and I went to the church.

    At the church, I could praise God and listen to the word. I wrote my note without thinking of my condition.
    I was surprised. When I listened to the word, suddenly I felt that my infirmity went away. I felt really normal, I was not sick. I thought to myself "where have those weaknesses gone?"

    At that moment, I became stronger and fervent, it seemed like I was not sick. I have been staying in that condition until now. I have never been weak because of my heart condition anymore.
    I believe that God has done somethingto help and rehabilitate my heart. I give thanks to God.

I give thanks to God for His grace. I also give thanks to Pastor and his wife for shepherding us in the true teaching word. Praises and glory be unto God, the Bridegroom of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
