Reflecting on the work of God in his life, he shared, “I am now a fourth year student, so I would like to open my heart to everyone today. My life has often been surrounded by Christians since I am a child till I am now studying in the university. My family are staunch Buddhists. When I was in high school, we often debated about Buddhism.”

“As time passed, when I am in the university, I came to know a Christian friend and from that time I have attended church every week. During the same time, I attended the cell group here every week. However, because of family pressure, I am afraid to change my faith, though I am the one who has been interested in Christ for a long time,” he continued.

Following his sharing, the Gospel was explained more in depth to him as he was eventually led to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord. Everyone present were encouraged to witness his life-changing decision.

As the church continues to maintain a close relationship with the Christian fellowship, it is with hope that they will encounter many prepared souls like this brother, as the Gospel is being preached widely in the campus.
