Peace and Joy in the Lord

Hello everyone!  I am Francer. I have been to Elim Church for about two years.  I was a Buddhist before. In fact, I studied in Buddhist school and my sister was a Buddhist too.

How come I became a Christian? About two years ago, I felt big pressure in my work and I was very unhappy. I wanted to look for a solution. By that time, my ex-colleague, Carol, invited me to join the 7th Alpha Course.  Alpha Course is for not-yet believers to learn more about the beliefs of Christianity.  Therefore, I told myself, “ just try! “

After the first session of this course, I liked this church very much. Here is just like a big family and I didn’t have any feeling that I was a stranger here, even for the very first time.  And most importantly, something was very strong here, I could feel it, which I didn’t have before. That was “ peace “ and “ joy”!

When I went to the temple before, what I could get was “ calm “.  But from the praise and worship time in the Alpha course, what I could get was “ peace “ and “ joy “ which was much stronger than “ calm “.  They are totally different.  That is why after I completed the course, I kept coming to cell group and Sunday service.

In these two years, God had helped me a lot and His grace was sufficient for me. I prayed that I wanted to change to another department.  This happened within only two months’ time.  I was much happier than before! Although my company is now much bigger than before, and the workload is much bigger than before, I can handle this very well with a positive attitude too!

Because I remember what the Bible says,

“ Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. “ (Matthew 11:28)

Therefore, no matter what problem or difficulty I encountered, I prayed. No matter what burden I have, I gave it to Jesus.  So, naturally, I can be freed from those burdens and pressure!

I am so happy that I can know Jesus. I was baptized in April 2010 and became a real Christian! I am very glad that I can be here and share my testimony with YOU!

Finally, I hope if you do not know Jesus yet, you can come and try to know more about Him. So we can share the peace and joy together!!
