Our Experience in Our Walk with God

Praise God! He is worthy to be praised!

I want to share with you what the Lord did last Saturday when we went to Chinatown in Chicago, and in the days after.

My husband and I were coming back from his work, and we went to Chinatown to buy some food. God used that time for my husband to distribute tracts translated into Chinese to give to the Chinese people there. Some were receptive, and some were not, but praise God for that open door to share the gospel with people. My husband met the owner of one of the food shops there who is a Christian. It was a blessing to know Him as a Christian who loves the Lord and he shared with us the words of God that were written in Chinese on the wall of his store. We praised God for that because Chinese customers will go to their shop, will read that Word, and it might be a way for them to come to know the Lord.

On our way back from Chinatown that day, my husband brought me to a neighborhood he used to live in in Chicago. But God put it on my husband’s heart to visit some Christian friends he knew from there to encourage them. So God led us to visit them, and when we went there, we felt that they really needed hope and encouragement. We praised God because He used that time for His Word to be preached, to reach out to His people who need to be strengthened by His Word.

My husband read the Word of God in 1 Peter and God’s Word was very powerful. It encouraged them when they heard it. We sang worship songs and Christmas songs for the Lord. All us were blessed. The mom and daughter who are my husband’s friends said that we were used by God to bring the light into their house.

Sometimes there are people who are hopeless, depressed, and afflicted by life’s circumstances. We, as Christians, must have the heart for people like them and obey the voice of God who is urging us to be used by Him in encouraging and praying for them.


Last night we went to a nearby gym. When we got to where we were going to work out, there were some teenaged boys who were there and talking. The Lord led my husband to pass out to some of them tracts that are made to look like million dollar bills.

The boys were surprised and one said, “Oh, he gave us money. Why is he giving us money?”

Another boy sitting on the stairs said, “No, he gave us more than that. He gave us God.”

When my husband heard that, he went to the boy sitting on the stairs and asked him, “What did you say?” The boy was a little bit scared because my husband’s voice is loud and firm. The boy thought he’d said something wrong.

But then the boy said,” I said you gave us more than money. You gave us God.”

Then my husband said, ‘Oh yes, you’re right, man!” The door was open for the gospel to be preached. Praise God He made a way!

My husband began to preach the Word of the Lord to the boys and they were listening to him. While he was doing that, I was silently praying that the Lord would touch the hearts of those young boys so that they will come to know the Lord as their savior.

We as Christians are called by God to preach the Word of God to the lost. We never know when or where the Lord will use us as His instrument. I want to encourage everyone to share the gospel, to give some tracts to people whom you meet.

This is the task God has commanded us to do in Matthew 28:19-20, to:

            “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
              name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
              and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

You never know what the tracts you will give can do for the life of the person who receives it. God bless you, brethren!
