Amazing Grace

  A testimony of my Mother, aged 90Last October, something quite marvellous and surprising took place. My mother all of 89 years of age, agreed to put her faith in Jesus Christ. It had been a long process, over many, many years. Her belief in the many gods of the Chinese tradition had been questioned, and slowly several of her 9 children had become Christians, including the youngest daughter, who passed away of cancer after her baptism.My mother had been steeped in all the outward forms of traditional Chinese religion; ancestor worship, praying to the 'god of heaven', 'god of the earth' and even dedicating her first born, a girl,  to the goddess of mercy or Kuan Yin. in her routine living, she had woven threads of belief, which she had  professed to the family. Though some of us questioned and objected to her many practices, we could not change her, and in order not to aggravate her as she aed, some of her children acceded to her requirements of offering food to ancestors on festival days and anniversaries. And so after many, many occasions of sharing about the christian faith, she nodded her head to speak with a pastor. The change had been real leaps; she stopped offering joss-sticks to the different 'altars' and allowed these to be removed. She stopped restricting her food to vegetables only on the first and fifteenth day of each lunar month. She wants to know about the Bible, and she goes to church. Daily she would read her large-print devotional. On her 90th birthday this year, she was baptised.  It is truly Amazing Grace.Video: http://youtu.be/A0gLntLIBYw 我的 89 岁的母亲,在去年信了主耶稣。今年在她90岁的生日受洗礼。非常不可思意的一件事。她以前非常迷信。她对上主祷告了以后,改变了许多,爱读聖经,有去教会。我非常感谢主的恩典, 让她得了永生Video: http://youtu.be/8s0hTjjxSd0
