I am 21 years old and live with my mother. I grew up in a family of another faith and I was a staunch believer who practised religious rites and rituals devotedly.
When I was studying in Year 10, my friends invited me to join an English programme at the Little Candles Methodist Church on Saturday mornings, which I joined sometimes. After the programme, Ps Daniel and Ps Apple would invite us to join the worship service on Sundays.
On one Sunday that I attended, Ps Apple preached on Psalm 115:4-8. She mentioned that God is real and He can help us. Initially I was angry because I felt that she was complaining about my faith and I could not accept that preaching.
However, two weeks later, God changed my heart. I began to see that He can really help me. Ps Apple then asked me if I would like to receive Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour. I did not receive Jesus at that moment, but instead, I went to consult a witchdoctor and offered food to my idols. But the message I heard that Sunday kept ringing in my heart, and I finally threw away my idols and prayed to receive Jesus into my heart, just as how Ps Apple taught me to do.
After that, I joined a church camp held at Rangsit Methodist Church in Bangkok. And I was baptised there on 6 May 2016. Thereafter, I joined the Sunday worship service at Little Candles Methodist Church every week. And I began to participate in the youth activities as well as helped cook for the church.
I remember my past when my mother and I had only 20 Baht ($S1) for food. But since I became a Christian, I have learnt to trust in God who has been providing me with much more than I need each day.
After my high school graduation, I decided to study an online course with the Bangkok Bible Seminary. Through the study, I have learnt to read the Bible much more intently, as well as come to appreciate worship songs which give me a great sense of joy. My prayer life has also deepened my trust in God; I am confident that He always answers my prayers in His timing. I have also decided to commit myself to full-time ministry, as serving God gives me a life that is fulfilling and worth living.
One day, I hope that I will be able to bring the Word of God to the people of Phrao and tell everyone about His love for us. Finally, I would like to encourage everyone to “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him. And He will make you righteous reward shine like the dawn!” (Psalm 37:5-6, NIV)
