Second Testimony. Angela


When I was four years old, I decided to follow Jesus. This is how it happened. My mom and dad read to me about the bible and also about God. Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I need Jesus in my heart to forgive me. And, I know that God loves me very much. So, I prayed and became a Christian.

When I do something wrong, and ask Him for forgiveness. I know God will forgive me because He loves me very much.

Because Jesus is in my heart, I know he is with me always. Even though I’m alone he is with me. When I have nightmares, God protects me.

When I was five, I looked around me at what God created and it was so beautiful. I also went to a Japanese preschool and I saw that God made everyone different. I made a lot of friends, and we played together. Now I am nine years old and I am ready to get baptized. I want to be baptized because I want to know him more. I will still continue to believe and enjoy Gods creations. I will also continue reading the bible. I need you in my prayers as I continue to follow my Lord Jesus. I really love God so much!

Last week, we spoke about real HOPE. During the Sunday morning service, three young people gave their testimonies and then were baptized.

Please read in his own words, the life changing story of one of the young men, Joseph.

When I was five I went to VBS (vacation Bible School) and we had to put out our arms like Jesus was dying on the cross. Soon it began to hurt, and people started putting their arms down because they couldn't stand the pain, but I realized Jesus couldn't put His arms down. I then understood that Jesus went through a lot of pain for my sins. That made me feel very bad. So I prayed for God to forgive me. Then I wanted to be baptized, but my pastor at that time said I had to wait until I was 9 or 10. So I waited, but I continued to pray and believe. Now I am 10 and I want to be baptized.

How about you? Can you understand the pain He suffered for your sins? Joseph can. Maybe you can too?

Next time, another life changing story from one of the young people.

God is ready to change your life forever--if you'd let Him!
