The Meaning of Life “Living in a remote mountainous region and being uncivilized, I was reached by the grace of God at work and studied the Bible at a family church. Then I took an odd job at a children care center, growing crops and raising livestock for seven and a half years without pursuing any spiritual interests. Wasting time and letting God down, I have glimpsed the same single and poor me in coming decades. I have been living […]

Emotional Blackmail “For the last 13 years, I have to climb six floors to get home every day. Last year, my husband and I finally bought a small flat with lift access. I was conscience-stricken though when seeing my 70-year-old father lives on the third floor of a building without elevators. Should I swap the flat with his as I’m much younger than him? I hesitate because I don’t want to climb the stairs either. The flat where my father […]

At Stake  “The church is at stake. During the epidemic, our church was closed for a period which our pastors were asked to return to work every day. It is said that the church-in-charge had arranged some unfinished tasks such as checking and refining the information of church members in order to cope with the inspection from the government, making access cards for members, and many other things. The church-in-charge also prohibited our pastors to read scriptures, pray, meditate, or […]

Amazing Experience “This is an amazing experience preaching to a non-believer. I feel sorry every time meeting with non-believers after becoming a Christian. I wonder where their souls may go. I even think that I may be the only Christian they will meet throughout their lives, and they will lose the chance to be saved if I don’t preach to them. I’m new and I don’t know how to preach to others. Thankfully I listened to a radio broadcast sermon, […]

Dangerous Situation “I feel like an incompetent Christian who have always lost control of emotions in the past. When there is dissatisfaction in life, I will go smash the glass of the bathroom door at home. I become paranoid, feeling hurt by others, and always have their hurtful words haunting my mind. Without living as good as the non-believed, I feel sorry for God, for my family and myself. It’s so sad. I hope to be comforted and understood, not […]

Having Lung Cancer “I have had lung cancer for five years. My recent examination indicates that my sickness worsens again. My daughter studies in the third year of senior high school and my son in the third year of junior high. My husband is a deliveryman. I don’t want to borrow money for treatment. I don’t want to receive financial help from the church anymore. Although I have believed in the Lord for two years and have been baptized already, […]

I Am Really Lonely “My husband has had an affair, I forgive him for the sake of our family. But I always feel weird as if there is a thorn in my heart. My husband also doesn’t open his heart to me. Moreover, I believe in God. As I have handled my marriage in a way like this, I particularly feel that it is my failure and guilt. I also haven’t set a good example. Although I’m very eager for […]

Overstressed “I’m a mother of two children, and as my husband works out of town, I have to take care of our children alone. I used to be didactic, even used corporal punishment sometimes. Now, I just hide in the room to pray to the Lord. I asked myself if I was too dominant and disrespecting her. Sisters at church feel that I’m too diffident. Whenever we clash, I would pray in silence, but she would beat me, scold me, […]

Work-life Balance “We are financially stable, my husband isn’t a person who can take good care of the family. He is only enthusiastic about his work and diligent in it. He works in the branch office during the daytime and goes home at night. After he has had dinner at home, he goes to the office to work overtime then sleeps in the office. My husband hasn’t returned home to sleep for more than two months. I hope that he […]
