Testimony of Sister Ching - November 8, 2014

 

Sister Ching is four and a half months pregnant and was registered last month. She is 41 years old, five years older than her current husband, and remarried. Her husband hates working, so Ching is the sole breadwinner for the household.

Recently, our team has been blessed to receive several testimonies of God’s healing and grace in China. We are excited to share these stories as testaments to God’s faithfulness, and we celebrate these victories in Christ. This story is from one of our workers in China, Brother Ge:

In a remote rural village belonging to the Miao (Chinese ethnic minority) people, lives a beautiful 21-year-old woman named Mrs. Ting. Mrs. Ting is not a novice when it comes to dealing with troubles -- she has faced hardship since the age of two. However, one encounter with Jesus forever changed her grave demeanor and gave her an entirely new outlook on life. Although Mrs. Ting has endured misfortunes, she is now a living example of Psalm 30:5: “Weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”

On one outing to find mothers and daughters, a few of our workers went through an outdoor vegetable and meat market, and there became acquainted with a woman, Ms. Wei (above), who ran a public toilet. These marketplaces are busy centers for all walks of life to congregate, bustling with shoppers, motorcycles, carts, children, dogs, and thieves. Rows and rows of makeshift platforms covered by fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, and meat create narrow passages slick with mud, oil, and blood. A toilet in this area is not somewhere anyone would like to hang around, and is usually operated and cleaned by the poorest people in the community. Yet it was amidst such a desperate place that a truly inspiring story began....

It was a rainy day at Ping’s village. Surprisingly, when our worker Sister Cao stepped into Ping’s house (above), the rain did not stop. Instead, it trickled down from the ceiling onto the dusty cement floor, onto the clothes which Ping had left to dry, and onto the bed where Sister Cao would sleep that night. Looking up, she could see the sky through the holes scattered across the ceiling, which itself was nothing more than a web of fragile wooden logs and rusty metal sheets. The interior of the house...

Following the birth of my second child, I discovered running initially as only a means to get in shape.  After I competed in my first race however, I was addicted!  Over the next year, I was literally chasing this passion, entering races and connecting with my local running community.  As opportunities arose to share my faith with fellow members of my racing team, I realized God could use this hobby as a platform for the Gospel.  A couple of months ago leading up to my next big race, I stumbled upon the All...
