I have always had an earnest desire even though I cannot work on the frontlines of the gospel. My desire is to please Heavenly Mother by bearing good fruit. I had believed falsehood as the truth in my seventy years of life and rejected the true God. Nevertheless, God saved this sinner. I was so thankful to God for His grace that I wanted to do something for Him though it might be small. Since I did not have much knowledge of the Bible and I was not good at explaining things, either, I had no idea how to preach the truth to people. So, I started each day with prayer early in the morning, hoping that the power of God who divided the Red Sea would come upon me as well.
One day, I went to a beauty shop after work, and I suddenly felt like I should go home quickly without any specific reason. I went home in a hurry, and when I arrived in front of my house, a lady whom I had never seen before greeted me and asked me for a favor.
“I moved here from Incheon a couple of months ago, and I’m looking for a good church to attend. I’ve been searching for one in every street for over a month, but I can’t find a church that fits me. Do you know a good church around here?”
I was very glad to hear that, and I introduced myself to her, saying that I was attending the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). Then to my surprise, she rejoiced more than I did. She said, “I once saw the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) in Incheon, and I felt that the Church’s name itself was holy. So, I was thinking about visiting the Church, but I soon gave up because people around me strongly objected to my going there.”
I invited her to my place and preached God’s word to her as much as I knew. Shortly after, a member whom I had called arrived at my home and taught her the truth in detail. She said that everything we told her was right because it was all written in the Bible, and she was reborn as a child of God.
When she was young, she lived in Japan, and then she moved to China, where she lost her parents in the ravage of war. To relieve her loneliness, she fervently believed in God. However, although she attended many different churches, she did not find comfort in any church, but rather she was disappointed by the wrong behaviors of Christians.
I fully understood how she had felt. I had also lost my parents during the Korean War and I depended on God all my life. I prayed that the sister, who had been wandering for a long time to look for the truth, would now find rest and peace under the wings of our Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother—the true Gods.
On the Sabbath day, she came to Zion with joy; she did not stop saying, “Thank you” and “Amen.” When she saw the members greeting her warmly and telling her, “God bless you!” she said that they were all like angels. Then she shed tears, saying, “I don’t think I deserve to receive God’s love because I’m a sinner.” I also cried in gratitude to God for allowing me to meet her.
She is already enthusiastic about the gospel, saying that she has to tell everyone that God truly dwells in the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). I also want to make more of an effort to find a soul like her who is longing for God’s love. I will diligently study the words of the Bible without using my age as an excuse, so that I can always boast about our Heavenly Mother who gives us the water of life, no matter whom I meet. Although I am slow of speech and weak in my knees, I have nothing to worry about because God has prepared blessings for me and the members who will make up for my shortcomings are with me. I will fill my remaining life with good and beautiful deeds, so that people can realize God’s love through my deeds as well as God’s word.
I give thanks and praise to Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for allowing me to bear a precious fruit to give me more faith and courage.
