Hallelujah!  In the name of Jesus I testify.

Though my mother was baptized into the Lord during her infancy, she married my father who was an atheist.  Consequently I was brought up with no knowledge of God.

In 1978, my mother had a stroke and was paralyzed unilaterally.  She was bedridden at the hospital for about 6 months.  Each time we visited her, we thought in tears that she might have to spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. With physio and medical therapy, she gradually learned to walk again.

Thanks to God's wonderful arrangement, our cousins who are members of the True Jesus Church began to preach and testify to us the miracles that have been performed in the church.

In 1979, we decided to get baptized into the True Jesus Church.  For the first time in my life, I began to ponder on the existence of God.  As I was only 13 then, I did not really know the meaning and purpose of baptism.  All I had hoped for was that through the water baptism, my mother would be healed.

Thanks to the grace of God He gave me the precious Holy Spirit.  I began to truly believe in Him and experience His existence.  Although my mother's illness is not completely healed, I am sure it is God's will that this be so.  With God all things are possible (Mt 19:26).  If my mother did not have this illness, we would not have become God's children. Moreover, my mother's complete

recovery is not important.  What is most important is that we are baptized into the TrueChurch and have the hope of eternal life, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom 6:23).

May this short testimony edify each and every one of us.

All glory be to our Lord Jesus.  Amen.

I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the war horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow shall be cut off, and he shall command peace to the nations; his dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.
