family was officially sent off to become missionaries
working with CGBC. Our basement has become the
CGBC cassette tape duplicating office. God has
also prepared for us some faithful volunteers.
Two of them come to help nearly every weekend.
It is by God's grace that we, as a couple,
serve him in one heart. When I think of such tremendous
grace of our Lord, I can't help thanking him with
tearful eyes. I am more than willing to "offer
our bodies as living sacrifice, holy
and pleasing to God - this is our spiritual act
of worship." ~Romans 12:1
back four years ago, my main concerns in life
were graduate degrees, careers, money and relationships
with people. Later I realized that a Christian
should not be like non-believers, but have hope
and trust in God. The Holy Spirit then revealed
God's plan to me and told me to live with Him.
Immediately my soul was awakened and I was filled
with joy. I had been born again for more than
ten years and I never waited for God's will, but
walked my own way. I asked God to forgive me and
from that moment on, I was a new person that was
willing to give up the pursuit of a highest graduate
degree. "What should I do in the future to be
pleasing to you, my Lord?" I asked.
these three years God has used different people
and incidents to train me to change my character
so that I can accept others and be obedient to
God. In this way I can serve more people in more
different ways. I can take the initiative to care
for others and share with them the cassette tapes
that have helped me. I hope I can share with my
brothers and sisters a variety of tapes proclaiming
God's will so that they can receive teachings
from God in different areas.
winter, a staff member from CGBC shared
with us about her mission working with CGBC in
our church. I was touched by her message. After
the meeting I read about the work of CGBC.
There seemed to be a response rippling in my heart.
This feeling stayed for quite some time. The next
morning before she left for New York, I had the
urge to have fellowship with her. Amazingly, we
talked about what had been in my heart, or what
I had experienced. When I was home I prayed and
asked God if He wanted me to be involved in this
mission. I pleaded with Him to give me a verse
to confirm my thought. In my devotion the next
morning God showed me clearly in II Timothy
1:9-14 that "He has saved us and called us to
a holy life - not because of anything we have
done but because of his own purpose and grace…"
Since God had called me, I asked God to call my
husband and two daughters so that we can serve
Him as a family. Soon the Holy Spirit moved my
husband, Dwight Yen, to initiate our whole family
to take part in the celebration of CGBC's 20th
anniversary. Later in our family devotions, he
led us in praying for accepting this broadcasting
mission. Then he started tidying our library and
buying desks and chairs and our two daughters
were happily talking about the fun of being volunteers.
I wondered about the Holy Spirit's plan and guidance
in this matter and thank Him in leading us to
devote ourselves in this mission. We appreciate
one of the elders in our church, Mr. Leung and
his wife, who supported us and prayed for us.
