Think and Act Courageously

“I have been a Jesus-follower for two years but have no courage to go to church. My grandmother and aunt are Christians but we have never talked about our beliefs. Sometimes I will exchange ideas on my belief with the daughter, who is a Christian, of my mother’s friend. She has invited me to join her cell group. Yet I have no courage to join them. Maybe I am the ‘lone believer’ you have mentioned. I believe in my heart but do not confess doubtlessly with my mouth. I have talked about my belief only with my father and husband, and three of my friends whom I have trusted most. I even denied when my colleagues asked if I was a Christian. Never dare to talk about religion and the gospel, I feel so guilty and blame myself. This is a great sin. Have you ever met a believer like me? What should I do?”

(Audience “Sister in the Lord”)

  • It is an important step ahead as sister is aware of her deficiency in religion. May God help sister be brave enough to admit to believing in God and stand as the witness of God.

Parenting Education

“My daughter is a Form 2 (Grade 8) student. With good academic performance, she loves learning but is unable to concentrate on homework as she likes exploring new things. She gets caught up in new vocabularies and things and forgets the homework. Having wasted her time, she has to stay up very late at night to finish her homework. This has been going on for nearly two years. I had tried everything to persuade and teach her but in vain. I hope she can study in a correct manner with a peaceful heart and wisdom. The pre-admission examination for top senior high schools is approaching. I hope that my daughter can be pre-admitted successfully.”

(Brother Zhang)

  • Brother Zhang’s daughter is talented. May God hold the girl’s future in His hands, and help brother Zhang understand and truly appreciate his daughter and realize academic excellence is not everything.

Gospel Broadcasting

  1. Program Renewals: Multiple programs have plans for revamping, and we seek the Lord’s help in guiding the team’s thinking, exploration, and establishing the direction of these programs. May God grant wisdom to our program team members to quickly adapt and engage in His work even in the face of limited manpower and resources. We earnestly hope that listeners can find help through the programs.
  2. Equipment Utilization: Regarding the operation of the recording studio and equipment, various issues have arisen during live broadcasts and recordings. We seek God’s protection, and the staff is currently working with the supplier to research possible solutions. We hope to handle the matter promptly, ensuring smooth live broadcasts and recordings, and relieving the concerns of our program team.
