EASTER TESTIMONIES (Part 1)

 

My Lord is gracious...

I attended church - albeit on and off - during my school days but drew away when I started work. I tried to return to church at times but it was hard.  Though I have always felt that I am a child of God, had believed and accepted Christ as my Saviour when I was young, the inner voice in me grew softer, and my heart colder, as I got distracted with life events over the years.

Until...sometime mid last year. My mum was unexpectedly taken ill with multiple life-threatening infections and was hospitalized. I recall the dreadful call from the doctor at 2 am, some hours after her first procedure, to inform that she was in very critical condition and may pass on if nothing was done. To diagnose the source of her infection, approval was sought to proceed with another procedure - unfortunately, one which would likely damage her kidney. It was a Hobson’s choice. I remember my first prayer (after many years) for the Lord to give my mum at least just a small ‘window of time’ - to seek her salvation. The Lord was gracious. An hour after that dreadful call, the doctor called again to advise that after further deliberation, they had decided on a different course of treatment for my mum. My mum woke up for a brief moment after four days in the ICU - and, praise the Lord, she was able to ‘follow’ the Sinner’s Prayer in her heart with my aunt and uncle when they were on their daily hospital visit and prayer. By God’s grace, my mum has since made good recovery and was baptized end of last year.

I thank the Lord for His patience with me; for His grace and mercy on me; for redeeming me. The Lord works in wondrous ways.  It so happened too that in the first week that my mum was hospitalized, I received a text message from a faithful friend inviting me to church. In one event, the Lord saved my mum...and me.  I am truly loved and blessed.                                                       —Michele Yong

 

I was born into a Christian family although I was the total opposite of what a Christian would be. I was rebellious, disobedient, and did things that till today, I still regret.

I went to church and looked like I was a very innocent kid but outside I was a very naughty kid. My parents and siblings would also teach me about Christ but I would just take it as a story. When people asked what religion I am I would say,” I’m a Christian” but when no one asked, I dared not even whisper about Christianity to them.

During LTF camp last year, my heart was changed. Through the messages, I learnt how to be different from the world and not follow the world. Besides the messages, I also talked to some of the closer YFers who were helping out at the camp about Christ, all my questions were answered and I got to know Christ better. There was also a game that changed my heart. I realised that I didn’t know God that well and I had almost no idea how to answer my friends or strangers if they asked me about Christianity. The camp did not only impact me for a week or two like LTF camp 2014. Until now I am still pondering on the messages and what I’ve learnt.

From then on, I stopped being very vulgar and I began being different from the world. I talked to my non-Christian friends about Christ and I started making decisions that I think would be pleasing to God. I became what a saved person would be.            —Jayson Loo Jia Sheng
