Testimony of Ms. May - October 27, 2014

 

May was registered this year in July and was at the time about six to seven months pregnant and had not yet believed in the Lord. They already had a four year old daughter, and the couple worked in a garment factory as sewers. Their days would be very peaceful. Because they already had a daughter they wanted to have a boy, but whenever she would go to the hospital to check if her baby was a boy or girl, they could not find out. Thank God.

 

Her original due date was in September, but due to a sudden inexplicable pain in her stomach accompanied with bleeding, the family rushed May to the hospital. The doctor immediately recognized that she was in critical condition and may not be able to save both mother and baby. However, May’s mother is a Christian and during the whole ordeal she was quietly praying for her daughter and grandchild. Thank God. May’s baby was taken out in time, and even though her little face was purple, she was still alive. After ten days of treatment, the child was finally out of critical condition and now the family has a lovely new daughter.

 

Now let’s hear May’s story!:

Under the emergency, the doctor told the family that My would have to remove her womb. Her family was devastated because, after all, May is only 27 years old, and their hearts felt sorry for her. Family members waiting outside the Emergency Ward were restless, filled with anxiety and fear, but May’s mother was silently praying for her daughter in her heart. She prayed for God’s mercy, healing, and miracles. Eventually, May’s bleeding stopped and she did not have to remove her uterus. She had crossed from danger into safety.

 

In the end, the doctors were amazed and asked May, “Does your family have a faith?”

May said, “My mother is a Christian.”

“Then it must have been that God who protected you. In such a dangerous situation, this was the first time I have seen a mother and baby be saved.”

 

Thank God that in situations that may be difficult for man, with Him all things are possible.

 

When the coworkers went to visit May and her daughter, May was very excited to tell them all about her experience. She said, “God protected me and my daughter.” She also asked the coworkers for a Bible, and they gave her a Bible MP3 player. Later when coworkers went to visit again, the family was at home listening to the player. May was glad to hear our coworkers explain the contents of the player and liked to ask questions about the gospel. We can truly see in her a desire for God’s word.

 

May and her family are very grateful, from the bottom of their hearts, for the help this ministry has brought them. May thanked the coworkers, “I really thank you for your ministry, and care for my daughter. This is really a great help and we thank you for dedicating yourselves to our home, coming every month to bring us unconditional love and care.”

 

Because of the treatment the family is suddenly in tens of thousands of dollars debt. To help, our coworkers adjusted their allowance from 100 yuan per month to 250 yuan per month.

 

Thank God for His amazing works. Even though May has not yet decided to give her life to the Lord, we believe that, given time, her and her family will be led to God. In this journey, we saw God’s healing and protection, and we hope that our brothers and sister can continue to pray unceasingly for this family. Our God is a God who hears our prayers, and as long as we have willing heart and perseverance, God will answer us!

 

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. (James 5:16)

 

God honors all of our prayers and testimonies. Let all glory and praise be given unto our God, the Father in heaven!

Ms. Ying is currently five months pregnant; she was enrolled with our Baby shower program this August.

 

Ying, her husband and their two children are a family of poor rural farmers, living in a remote mountainous area. Because they have no source of income at home, to make a living, they had to drag the family, away from their hometown, into the city to work. The husband is 48 years old, and Ying is almost 30. The husband has no education so he can only rely on temporary jobs to make a living. His main work is to lift and move sand mortar mix, and he works tirelessly. They earn about 2000 yuan ($326) every month, but housing rent, at its cheapest, is 500 yuan ($82). The wife’s hands and feet are disabled, they do not act freely, and she is slightly mentally handicapped, so she cannot work. She can only be at home, raise the kids, and do some housework. Their eldest daughter is in preschool now and their second daughter is almost two years old. Their family situation is difficult.

 

On August 22, our coworkers went to visit their home and they heard the gospel for the first time. The couple was able to feel God’s love from the co-workers. They became very emotional and told our coworkers that whether in their hometown or in the city, no one has ever cared for them in this way. In their everyday lives, they are often frowned upon, despised by others, and have never had this experience of people caring for and helping them.

 

After a period of constant contact and communication, the couple came to know Jesus and that only through believing in the Lord can they get His blessings and help. The couple said: if it not for the concern and help they experienced from our co-workers, they would have never known there is love in this world. They said they must believe in Jesus, rely on Jesus and follow Jesus. The coworkers helped them to say a prayer to give their lives to God, and also listened and read the Bible with the coworkers. When hearing some of the verses in the Bible, for example: But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Hearing these verses, they would be filled with tears and say: if only we heard the Gospel earlier!

 

Let us come together and pray for the family! Ask God to keep blessing them and open a road for them, to give them abundant grace. We believe that God's grace is sufficient for their use because for those who take refuge in the Lord, our God will not let them live in shame. Amen!

 

Praise: God Who Hears Our Prayers!

Sister Hui (47), was registered in August and she is a Christian. She and her husband are remarried and have a 7-year-old son together. Their relationship, however, is not doing well and he resists her faith. Hui is now about four months pregnant through an unwanted pregnancy. Not only is she pregnant by accident, but she is also pregnant at an old age. Her husband is only considering this pregnancy from an economic standpoint and worries that they will not be able to raise the child. He also worries that they would become the laughingstock of the town because of his wife’s unexpected pregnancy at old age, so he insists on abortion. During this time, her husband has threatened to leave her, and does not care about much about Hui’s livelihood. Instead, everyday he insists that she have an abortion. Hui’s family, relatives, friends, and neighbors all try to persuade her to have an abortion, but she knows not to shed innocent blood, and insists on keeping the child.

 

In the meantime, our co-workers call her every day to give her comfort and encouragement, and visit her to support her decision. Through the prayers and intercession of our brothers and sisters, and Hui’s insistence on praying every day, God has finally made ​​a breakthrough in her home!

 

During a local coworkers meeting on September 23, 2014, they prayed for Hui’s family. They later learned, that on the morning of the same day, Hui’s husband once again was trying to force her into abortion. However, their son walked into the room and bravely confronted his father saying, “I want the baby in my mom’s tummy to be born because I am lonely!” The husband was stunned for a moment and then said, “Let me think about it.” It has now been about two weeks since that day and he has not brought up the subject of abortion again, and his attitude towards Hui has changed as well.

 

Praise God, for the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. As long as we ask in faith, our God is always righteous, holy, and faithful. We believe God is a God of miracles and he has done great things with merciful grace. Recently, our co-workers called Hui and learned that she is safe, and her family is living in better harmony.

 

We give all the glory to God! If we just offer up our burdens to Him, we will be able to enjoy His abundant grace and experience a peace beyond human understanding. We believe God has a will for Hui and that the Holy Spirit will move her husband to bring him know the Lord. The Lord is the only true God and He is the living God! All who are willing to believe in him will be saved! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

 

Pray for favor on this family and that God continues to tenderize the father's heart. May he begin to love and cherish his baby and have more intimacy and understanding with his wife and son.

Update: Praise our amazing God who hears our prayers: we received a phone call from Ya and she said that her family has been worried about her living on own her own. They found her and brought her home. She is very grateful for the help our ministry give her and we are planning to visit her soon.

 

Pray that God continues to watch over Ya, the baby in her belly, and her one year old son. We hope our coworkers can understand her situation more when they go visit her, and hope God gave reveal to them a better way to serve and love her.

 

Original Prayer Request: Last month, our coworkers registered a very young mother, Ms. Ya, who is only 18 years old. She has a husband who is 20 years old and works away from home, and together they have a one year old son. She realized she was pregnant last month, and is about four month pregnant now. They live in the mountains in a remote village, and their family is very poor. Ya’s husband does not take care of his family, even though he works he has never sent them money. Ya has no education and does not use the telephone to communicate.

 

Her husband’s mother died when he was very young, and he was brought up by his father. A few years ago his father was working in construction and had an accident causing him injury to his feet. After physical therapy, the father’s feet could not be healed, so he is disabled and their family is extremely poor. Last month, when our workers went to visit them, there was only had Ya, her father-in-law, and Yah’s one year old son at home. Other than those three people, the have no one else.

 

When we looked again at Ya’s registration papers, we noticed in one of the photos that there were many bottles of alcohol in her home. This led our hearts to feel uneasy about Ya’s situation. Considering she lived

alone with her son and father in law, with no mother and husband by her side, it is very likely that her father in law is an alcoholic. Therefore, we asked some coworkers to visit her and try to understand Ya’s situation, to understand if her environment is safe.

 

Yesterday we received our coworker’s reply as follows:

 

Two day ago we had some coworkers go visit Ya in her home. We were planning on bringing her their monthly allowance and increase it from 100 yuan to 250 yuan. However, it was only until we reached Ya’s village that we realized she had already ran away from home. Our coworkers found out from her neighbors that her husband does not care at all for his family and spends his time drinking and gambling. Her father in law is also the same, he plays mahjong, gambles, and drinks. We heard that her older brother is in college and her younger sister is also studying; she may have decided to marry early because of this.

 

We also heard that, last month, after our workers visited Ya, her father in law pressured her into giving him her monthly allowance. He then gave the money to his own niece, so Ya and her son were unable to use any of the money. Unhappy with her situation, Ya left home to find work in the city, leaving her son behind with her father in law. It has already been a few weeks since anyone has heard any news from her.

 

Currently, we are very worried that Ya may abort her child, but also worried that even if she does not choose to abort her baby, her living situation would be difficult. Meanwhile, she left her son at home where he is bound to be subject to a great deal of emotional hurt and feelings of abandonment.
