Before I came to Aberdeen from China, I had never known about any religions or God because I believed in Evolution and science. I didn’t know that God actually created the universe and that He watches over us all the time.
When I first went to church in 2005, I went there just to play and see my friends. I never knew what the adults were doing until I came to the COC Mandarin Church and joined the worship service and listened to the pastor’s preaches about God. And that’s when I learned about God’s love for us, and our sin.
In 2008, 13th of October, I got baptized in the COC church, because I felt ready for the Lord Jesus to enter my heart and be my savior and Lord. After I was baptized, I felt that the hole in my heart was filled, and I was very happy to know that God is with me.
Our family changed after we all got baptized, there was much more happiness in the atmosphere of the house, everything was more fun to do, and the problems were easier to solve.
And I behaved much better than before, so my parents are happy too!
Before I met God, I usually blamed someone else for my own mistakes, but now I know that is wrong. I also learned how to control myself, and not to get angry when something goes wrong.
I hope the people in China will get a chance to know God too and believe in Him!
