CHINA: Embracing her Heavenly Father
Five years ago Meng, from China, was a rebellious and lonely16-year-old. Her parents ran a business and left her to care for herself most of the time.
“I had all kinds of material things but I needed and wanted their time, care, and love. I hated my parents because I was lonely,” she said.
But that time proved to be a turning point in their lives as her parents came to know the Lord.
“There were no longer fights and quarrels at home,” Meng said. “I began to respect and love my parents again.”
She also watched carefully as they went to a Project Philip Bible study, led by a Bible League-trained church planter. Still an unbeliever at the time, Meng didn’t understand why they were going, but her love for them continued to grow.
Then, that very same year, her dad died and Meng’s relationship with her Heavenly Father began.
“In my grief, I turned to the Lord for comfort and support,” she said. “He lifted me out of my darkest days with His mighty arm. I started to go to church regularly and I began going to the Bible studies. As I studied God’s Word, I came to understand why my parents changed for the better after they came to know the Lord.
“I’m grateful that my dad helped lead me to the Lord,” Meng said. “I am grateful for God’s love and compassion. I’m grateful for His Word. He has transformed my life.”
Today, Meng continues to study the Bible so that she can grow in her faith. “I want to study hard so that I can help spread [God’s] love and His teachings,” she said.
