A Place for Change

It was one of those sleepless nights when I started watching The 700 Club Asia. The show and the Counseling Center became my companions during my most trying times—when my boyfriend won’t commit to marriage, and so I was left alone to raise our son.

I remember praying with one of their counselors, and in that prayer I accepted Jesus Christ. He became my Lord and Savior. From then on I began to see light shining down on my hopeless situation.

The Counseling Center referred me to an Assemblies of God church near my address. On day I decided to visit that church, and there was an ongoing women’s fellowship. All of the people there warmly welcomed me.

A woman pulled a couple of chairs so we can sit down and talk. I shared to her about my son’s bout with asthma. Little did I know that I was already telling her about my boyfriend, and how he left me hanging and confused. I was already crying that moment. I have shared to her a lot about my life. She then prayed for me and gave me sound advice like a real friend would.

When I attended my first Sunday service in that church, almost everyone at the congregation threw their arms around me. What kind of place is this, I asked. I feel so welcomed, something I’ve never felt before.

Today, it’s been a year since I first went to church. And my neighbors have noticed the improvement in my life. They would approach me and then ask me to pray for their problems. I’ve even invited a few of them to come with me to church on Sundays.

Since I committed my life to Jesus and the church, I’ve experience a lot of breakthroughs. I got a training scholarship and then I was hired at a call center. My son’s health has greatly improved. I can see that my life now has direction.

Inside the church, I’ve proven that God is real. I want to be in church all my life.
