In the past year, again, I lost two of closest relative: my mother-in-law and my dad. I recalled that two days before my mother-in-law passed away in NUH, my fourth uncle and aunt visited her. In the midst of the gospel sharing, she suddenly called me, “Yong Li, give me your hand.” I was stunned and stretched my hand out to her. My mother-in-law grasped my hang tightly and said, “If you believe, I will believe too.” My father’s episode also lingered in my mind all the time. I picked up a phone call from my sister informing me that my father was in critical condition. When I rushed to him at the hospital, he was unconscious. I whispered into his ears that there is a loving God almighty and he had to trust Him. I told my dad that God will take you to heaven where there is no pain.
In the process of believing in the Lord, I gradually experienced the peace and joy I had been seeking for. I know that I am a sinner but the Lord Jesus will not despise me. I asked Jesus to be my personal Saviour, and let me grow in the Lord and that I may please Him.
Every time when I sing the hymn “O Happy Day,” I would burst into tears when I thought of my father and my mother-in-law, and my relatives, I pray in my heart and wished that they are all happy in heaven!
I am very grateful that I can be a Christian. I thank our Lord and our Heavenly Father. I thank our Pastor, Tree of Life Christian Church and every brother and sister in Christ! You are like my family.
