ICC Note: Sister Yang is a leader of a fellowship group comprising of nearly 20 catechists in a church location in Changchun, China. She provides a strong testimony to China Christian Daily regarding how she came to Christ and her struggles to truly understand His love. 

11/06/2015 China (China Christian Daily) – Over twenty years old, Sister Yang has already serving as a leader of a fellowship group comprising of nearly 20 catechists in a church of Changchun. When came to the interview, she felt quite happy, stopped what she was doing and started to tell us her journey of faith.
Sister Yang went to church with her mother when she was just a little girl. However, she did not understand the meaning of the faith or her relationship with Jesus Christ. Being taken by her mum to church every Sunday was the only thing she knew.
She first experienced God’s wonders when she was in senior high school. She suffered Sphagitis because of a heavy cough. Since her condition did not improve at all after taking plentyof medicine, her mother told her to pray to God for healing. Not quite convinced, she prayed to God and asked Him for His healing and then she recovered soon after. She was touched by her own experience and started to believe that there truly is an almighty God.
In university, she gained some spiritual growth. However, she still did not understand God’s love or Christ’s salvation. She always thought that these things had nothing to do with her. With a deep sigh, Miss Yang recalled, “I became a Christian when I was little, but for many years I did not really understand the Bible or the meaning of worshipping God in spirit and in truth.”
Later, Sister Yang joined a fellowship group in her university. She started to read the Bible, pray and listen to sermons with other brothers and sisters, as well as practice her belief in her daily life. One year later, from a catechist she became a Christian. But she still was not satisfied since she felt some part of her spirit was chained. She said, “I wanted to be released, I desired for freedom, so I often prayed to God and asked God to set me free in truth.” She did not stop her prayer. Step by step, God led her to understand the meaning of salvation and the way of achieving true freedom, namely, confessing her sins and accepting salvation from Jesus Christ.
