The Effectiveness of Prayer!

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. After learning that she is pregnant, Ching’s family members have been particularly opposed to her wanting to keep this child and have told her to abort. Ching says that since her husband does not work, so their family would be unable to raise the child. She already sends 500Yuan ($80) a month to her 13-year-old daughter from her previous marriage. She works at a pharmacy and only earns about 2000 Yuan($330) a month, and still needs to raise her family, pay rent, and shoulder all the family expenses.

 

Our coworkers were introduced to Ching through a sister in Christ. When Ching first met them she was not convinced of their sincerity and refused to believe that such a good thing could exist. The coworkers went to meet and talk with her and explained their mission to take care of baby girls. Then did Ching receive that they are truly unconditinoally caring for her. They talked to her about the gospel, and told her that choosing abortion is choosing to shed innocent blood with one’s own hands. Later, after continuing to talk to Ching about the harms of abortion on her own body, our coworkers asked her if she was willing to let them pray for her family. She not only accepted the coworkers offer to pray for her family, but also decided to accept Jesus as her personal Savior. They prayed for her!

 

Ching no longer says that she wants to have an abortion, but she does say that she is very tired. She is tired of working in the pharmacy, but if she does not work then her family would have no livelihood. The coworkers have prayed for Ching’s husband to have a change of heart and be moved to work and take care of his family, including the baby in Ching’s belly. They also prayed that he would take on the responsibilities that a husband and father should have.

 

Now, Ching often calls our coworkers, and takes initiative to ask about the truth of the gospel. She has expressed her determination to follow the Lord, and believes that Jesus will open up a path for her and her unborn baby. This month when the coworkers went to visit her, they saw that she was filled with happiness and confidence, unlike the previous month when she was filled with worry and fear.

 

All glory to God! We believe the Holy Spirit will continue to work in Ching’s life, to lead her and her family to church, and to receive more of His truth!

I am simply one of these many women whose lives were destroyed by the policy....
