I grew up in a Christian family in Hong Kong. However, I was not interested in practising Christianity. 10 years ago I came to study in the UK. It was a chance to escape from boring church life and my adventure in a foreign country began.
During my time in university, I was tired of the presumptuous lifestyle. And wondered what else could bring joy that lasts a long time. I decided to return to church to find out what real Christianity means.
Brothers and sisters from the student fellowship gave me great support in life. We met up regularly for food, sharing and in-depth bible studies. This accelerated my relationship with God. In April 2017 I came to Christ. I know God has always been there and it will continue.
Earlier in the year, I was exploring different opportunities to do evangelism work locally. I met a theology student who volunteered at BCM, sharing about his experience working here. After reading through BCM’s website and visiting the Open Day, the internship opportunity caught my interest. Now I am here to explore further with people experienced in evangelism.
My highlight at BCM so far is working with children, as they have limitless enthusiasm to learn more about everything. This encourages me to continue to seek God wholeheartedly. The biggest challenge is street evangelism. Speaking to strangers about the Good News requires much bravery to step out of your comfort zone. But thank you, God, for a team who give me great guidance in this area.
The situation in Hong Kong at the moment is a serious and complicated one, that a few words cannot express. Many in Hong Kong are protesting for the rights and democracy we deserve. Millions went on the street to protest peacefully, but the government refused to answer. The protest has escalated ever since. Many are experiencing sadness, anxiety and helplessness.
Hatred is spread widely across Hong Kong, dividing friendships, families and churches. May we pray together wholeheartedly for the Chief Executive Carrie Lam, protesters, police and churches. Other than taking action, we can only turn to God for his divine provision to solve this problem. May the anger cease from both sides. May God heal those who are injured, comfort those with a weary soul and may those who died rest in peace. Your awareness on this matter and each of your prayers mean a lot to people in Hong Kong. May God bless you.
