Thanks to my wife’s unceasing effort, I registered to Manmin Church in 1992. Because I was born to a family that believed in Buddhism, I knew nothing about God. I couldn’t understand the meaning of Christian life. I was only a Sunday-churchgoer.
In May 2000, however, I witnessed the crippled start walking after the prayer for the sick on the altar during the 2-week Special Divine Healing Meeting. I realized God is alive and tears came out. Since then, I’ve kept the Lord’s Day holy, and faithfully managed my God given duty.
In 2002, I was invited to Miracle Healing Festival. As I watched the works of God’s power more than 3 million people gathered and countless people were healed. I was more assured of the living God and my faith grew stronger.
In June, 2004, I had a serious pain in my abdomen. A doctor diagnosed it as appendicitis, and recommended an immediate surgery. But I went to elders and told them that I hadn’t given full tithes since I had become bankrupt. After I repented of it, we prayed for me. When I said, “Amen” at the end of the prayer, the pain disappeared. I could eat well again. Later, an examination at a hospital showed no sign of the disease.
Since then, there have been many changes to my life. I stopped depending on my knowledge. I’ve started to run my business in the right way. I abandoned my greedy dreams. I started over from nothing, but I didn’t adopt any personally self-benefiting strategies. Even though the situation was pretty bad, I could manage my business. God sent me people who could help my business such as in commercials. Thanks to God’s help, my business became prosperous.
The biggest blessing has been that I am so healthy, and that I have no sick body parts at the age of over 70. I am so grateful for this. God has also blessed my wife with health. My wife and I have played a Big Balloon Race, in Manmin Summer Retreat for 7 years.
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father who has blessed me to lead a healthy and valuable life.
