Candice's Testimony

 

Before I received Christ into my life, my life was full of ups and downs. I remember when I was younger, I didn't enjoy going to church and I often fell asleep during the service. I didn't favour to be a Christian and I had never pondered about being a Christian one day. I was a quiet and disciplined girl, but as time went by, I became a rebellious girl in school. I remembered myself not doing school homework when I was a Secondary Two student and my school days were full of vulgarities as a language of communication with my group of friends and I couldn't control myself.

 

Last year, Sister Carin invited me and brought me here to Harvester Community Church (HCC). I found love, joy and happiness from God after a few months, so I received Christ at the end of one Sunday school class last year under the guidance of Sister Mingzhu. My character changes as time passes. I have become less hot tempered and have stopped speaking vulgarities. When I received Christ into my life, I opened my heart to God and welcomed Him into my life. But on the other hand, I struggled a lot with my family as they objected me from going to church. Hence, eventually I left HCC after a few months. My closer friends in church did not give up on me. They never failed to care for me by texting me and even writing letters to me. I am really grateful to Huiyun, Qiqi, Maggie, Jiaxuan and Qiaofen for their faith in me that allowed me not to lose my trust and belief in God.

 

In this journey with God, I definitely had my personal encounter with Him. It was a Friday when I was really exhausted after a long week of school. I went back home straight, thinking of taking some rest. But these words came to my mind, "O-levels are coming and why aren't you studying?" So I actually picked up my Mathematics assessment book to do the questions. Yet, while doing, my tears started to roll down my cheeks profusely and I just couldn't contain my emotions. I was so amazed because I guess God actually heard my prayer at that moment of time. I prayed for relief of stress and also for the direction of my future because I was just about to give up on Mathematics which could actually lead me nowhere due to my horrendous Mathematics results. But God actually showed me by speaking to me while I was tearing to let my faith be built on Him and believe that things will turn out in a different way. Hence, I started trusting in God with all my heart. And two months later, things became so much better and my Mathematics actually improved tremendously from being the last few lowest in class to the top ten in my class.

 

This year, I am glad that God still opens the door for me to be able to come back to HCC again with the support of my cell members. There are many changes that actually took place in my life after receiving Christ such that God actually opened the door for my parents to allow me to attend Sunday services. And slowly, I even went to this year’s "Year of Transformation" church camp in Malaysia and was also able to graduate from my Sunday school class. God continued to create miracles in my life and now I am also able to attend cell group regularly every Wednesday. Recently, I just received my Chinese O-level results and I was totally blessed by God as I managed to attain an A1. It was God because during the stressful period, God gave me the strength and wisdom that I needed and blessed me through.

 

Due to the miracles God has done in my life, I am really grateful and I want my relationship with Him to be never ending and even closer than before. My life actually changed so drastically after all the pain as God didn't give up on me and actually walked through all that with me. Through prayer, I trust that God will actually make greater changes in my life, so I thank God sincerely for Christ’s gift of salvation. I would like to see myself growing even more and begin to serve in at least one ministry. I would like to thank my beloved cell group and zone for being such an astonishing zone that never fails to love God together!

 

Yu Meng's Testimony

 

Looking back, it seems that God has already worked in my life to bring me to Him. Since young, I have gone to children church regularly. However, I went there just to play games and have fun. I never understood about God’s love and His words. After a period of time, I stopped attending the church but in junior college times, I joined my classmates’ cell group. This time, I could feel their love for God and it got me curious. Yet, I also did not pursue much about God but I have started opening up to God though I still thought that being a Christian and attending sermons were very boring.

 

During the time when I was serving the nation, Winston invited me to HCC for Easter Service. Although I had always thought Christianity was boring, I thought it was good to make more friends through church and so I agreed. And during the service, I accepted Christ though I did not know what was going on then, after which I attended the next few services and cell group to learn more. During that period, I started to get used to the culture and adapt to it.

 

God has been good to me since I accepted Christ, even though I am more of a lukewarm Christian. He manages to soften my heart in the past two years. I have grown up in a single parent family and certain conflicts that occurred between my mother and relatives seemed to have hardened my heart. I have taken many things for granted and become quite numbed to certain emotions. In the past, I also used to be more hot tempered towards my mother and got agitated easily by my surroundings. This situation was exacerbated by my own pride as I refused to talk to others about my family as I felt that it was shameful. However, as I stay close to God, I have learnt to give, love, let go of the past and appreciate things happening around. I have become more conscious of my own actions and also more sensitive to the people around me. God has also brought more peace into my heart such that I do not get irritated so easily.

 

I am blessed with good friends, many of whom are from our Varsity Ministry. And in fact, God has also prevented several accidents from happening to me. Around three or four times, either the vehicle jam-braked or missed me just by a few centimetres. This sets me thinking that God could have easily taken me away but by His grace, He has kept me unharmed. It is God’s love that keeps me close to Him. I thank everyone from our Varsity Ministry and my NTU cell group for being such understanding and wonderful brothers and sisters to me. And also to God who showers me with His love and blessings, placing the wonderful people around me.

 

徐增民的见证

 

 认识耶稣是因着我的太太,美玲,接受了耶稣,生命被改变。她来教会,我也跟着来。Linda师送了我一本圣经,我每天读一点,圣灵帮助我更认识耶稣。我就接受了耶稣作我个人的救主,因我领受到神的爱,知道耶稣爱我。

 

 我感受到神与我同在。每一天我工作和日常生活都很开心,顺利,还被升级加薪。我经历到神给我突破了恐惧,压迫感在工作上。我最软弱就是要跟一班高级职员与老板在会议上发表工作计划要怎样进行与教导新人的讲义,这常让我心情不能平静地集中我所要发表的话题。我太太常扶持我这方面的祷告而每次我主耶稣都帮助我顺利完成我的任务。我也渐渐得着这方面的刚强。

 

 我要感谢主耶稣帮助我很多,也要感谢主给我一位背后一直扶持我的好太太和我的岳母一家人的爱戴。我也要感谢小组的扶持还有Linda师的教导。荣耀归给主耶稣。

 

翁昌发的见证

 

 我在2007年被医生诊断,在脑部得了轻微的中风。这病影响了我表达的能力因我记忆几乎完全失了。我太太,雅花,接受主耶稣后,我就跟着她一起来教会。教会弟兄姐妹问我可有感受到耶稣的爱?

 我常回答"没有",因那时我只是跟着她来。后来,我渐渐地主动要来教会,不是因我要跟太太来,是我自己每个礼拜天都想来敬拜耶稣。就这样,我接受耶稣作我个人救主,也参于小组。我要感谢耶稣的帮助,我现在的表达能力有进步了。我把荣耀归给主。

 

荫良的见证

 

在来到教会之前,我也和大部分中国人一样是一个没有宗教信仰的人,我的家庭也没有宗教信仰。比起宗教我更多的相信自己,我觉得,我生命的一切都由我自己来掌控。但这一切,从我认识了书文姐妹开始,我的生命开始有了转变。她给我介绍他们的教会也就是我现在在的教会丰收关怀中心,并且她邀请我去她们的小组参加小组的活动等。一开始,我拒绝了她的邀请,我觉得这会很浪费时间,而且我还有点惧怕.。但是她没有因此放弃对我的邀请,而且还和我分享一些和神有关的事,虽然我一直在拒绝。

 

直到去年年底,我从中国来新加坡,下飞机后不到一个星期就是我考试的时间。那个星期我复习的很吃力,自己给自己的压力也很大。我觉得很累,累的没有任何力气去思考除考试以外的事情。就在这没有任何办法的时候,我记得我曾今听说过这个世界有个万能的神。所以我试着去祷告,我记得当时我自己大概是这么祷告的:神啊,如果您是万能的,我相信此时此刻,您定会听见我的祷告,虽然我现在不是一名基督徒,但我希望您能够帮助我,让我的考试顺利通过,不管你给我的结果是如何,我都愿意接受。只希望您能使用你的大能来扶持我,我真的需要你。如果您给我得胜我定会去追寻你,去分享你给我做的,去荣耀你的大能。

 

当我祷告完的时候,我心中带着一丝的盼望,我希望他真的存在虽然我未曾认识他。考试的时间临近,我复习并没有起色,我甚至已经忘记自己曾今求过神。我抱着要补考的心理走进的了考场,2个小时的考试时间过去了,最后我看着PASS的成绩单,我很兴奋,一种说不出来的喜悦。我不知道我是怎么做到的,虽然我只是刚刚通过而已,但是对于我来说这已经是个奇迹了。

就在我狂喜的时候,我没有忘记之前的祷告,但是我还是没有很确信神真的在帮我。不过我决定,去书文们的小组参加他们的活动。我很惊讶他们每个人很热情,他们对我这个陌生人并不排斥,都很主动来认识我,和我问好。我很感动,这里很温暖,所以我想加入这个大家庭。

 

 还记得刚开始参加礼拜的时候,他们问我要不要接受主,我还是不太愿意,我害怕朋友嘲笑我信主,而且我觉得自己对神对圣经了解得太少,也不知道自己信主之后要做什么,我担心我自己有一天会离开教会。他们知道这些后就一直鼓励我,告诉我只要有一颗想要主的心就够了并且时常为我祷告。最后他们的坚持感动了,我决定接受主,虽然心理还带着那些顾虑。

 

 时间过得很快,几个月过去了,我也一直都有参加礼拜,小组聚会等等教会的活动。但是我并没有像教会里的朋友们对主的感受那么深,我觉得自己完全和神没有交流。渐渐的我开始觉得聚会有点乏味,礼拜只是一种习惯。在种瓶颈时期,我甚至有想过离开教会,我也有很担心自己会离开,所以一直为这个祷告,我说神啊,不要让我离开你好嘛,我是真的想进入你的国度,想感受到你。祷告过后,我很感谢神,他没有放弃我,他让我们组长可为来帮助我。他很有耐心的去了解我的近况,去了解我和神的关系,他教我看圣经,用神的话语去带领我,和我分享他自己的经历,为我祷告。他的努力没有白费,我的心意有了转变,至少离开教会的念头已经没有了。但是我对神的存在依旧不确信.

 

 突然,有个晚上,神在我生命里做了一件对我影响非常大的事情。他在我梦里给了我一个异像,他让我在梦里扮演了一个非常成功的自己,我事业成功,我有跑车,我有钱,在这个梦里我想要什么他就给我什么,当我得到所有梦想后,我心里没人任何的满足和喜悦感,反而是内心无比空虚,就像个黑洞无法填满,我流泪了。此刻我想起了礼拜的时候,那些被聖灵充满的人,他们或是倒地大哭,或是开口大笑,我想起自己的祷告一个个被应允,我想起教会的朋友在我耳边祷告的情景。我瞬间恍然大悟,其实我真正想要的不是这些世俗的东西,而是神,只有真正得着神,我心中才有喜悦才有满足。同时,我强烈的感受到神与我同在。我很感谢主并没有在我犯错后让我醒悟,而是提前用他的方式警醒了我。从那天起,我像从生了一样,我变的比以前开朗了自信了,我不再觉得生活很累,我不要再为自己而活着,我要为神而活,我所做的一切都要是为了荣耀他。
