Meet with Mary Ma

Date: 27th May 2009
Venue: Jill's house

Although i do not know Mary Ma, i still go to Jill's house to meet
up with her. Heard about her story from Jill and really want to
meet her. I was truly encouraged by her testimony. I believe
that God is with her while she was at the deepest valley
of her life. Her sharing reminded me of something which
is important in my life.

"You will know how real is our God when you are facing
difficulties in yout life. You may leave God when you
are successful or you have everything you want. But once
you are facing problems, now you see God........"

May God bless you abundantly in your career & family.....

Dinner at Li Qiang's house

Wow... another blessing... being invited to Li Qiang's house for dinner.
It's great to have time to talk to Li Qiang & Yuan Chen. They are our
church's spiritual leader. We could hardly have chance talk to them
as they are always busy welcoming new comers, give counselling
and pray for those who need encouragements in the church.

So, it's great to have more time to sit down and talk to them......

Congratulations to you, Richard!!!!
Nelson and I are really happy for you!!!
We do not have any better words to say besides than praise and give
glory to God for His amazing work in your life..
You changed a lot since we first met you in the church.....
We are really encouraged when we know that you are going
to be baptised.......Although "someone" tried to deceive you
in the past.... Jesus said, I'm the way, the truth and the the life.....
the truth has set you free from all the lies........ We are really happy for
you, Richard......We will continue to pray for you so that you will
grow in the Lord......
