Hi my name is Lin. In 1996 I fell seriously ill and for the following eighteen months I remained ill. During this period I had tremendous, wonderful help from my family and friends, but there were obviously long periods when I was alone and during this time I found myself speaking to God, asking him to help me and be with me.
I had been thinking for some time that I wanted my daughter Aimee to go to a church to hear about God. One day when Aimee was about 10 years old, she went to play with a friend in Dovecot. She came home to tell me that she had attended the ‘Holiday Bible club’ at Dovecot Church. On the Friday it was a ‘Family Fun Night’ and children could only attend if a parent was with them. Subsequently we went to the Family Fun Night, followed on the Sunday by the Family Service and we have been attending ever since.
Aimee is twenty years old now and has become a Christian.
I had always believed in a God, who created me and the world in which we live, but it was only at Dovecot that I heard and understood the Gospel message, that Jesus Christ died for me on the cross, to save me from my sin. To give me forgiveness, everlasting life and a home in heaven.
It is only now that I am a Christian that I realise that it wasn’t me talking to God when I was ill, but God speaking to me, telling me to lean on him and I have been doing so ever since.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life
1 Timothy 6:12
for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day..
2 Timothy 1:12
