Don’t Waste This Illness

My family and I came to RHCCC’s Mandarin Ministry in 2013. I’ve been a Christian for more than ten years. In this big family that we call church, I’ve served in various ministries, such as caring for children in YLD, singing in the choir, and serving in Joshua Fellowship cell groups.

I was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2018. The love and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ enabled me to overcome fear and worry, and I dutifully followed the medical team’s treatment plan. Thanks to our pastors, fellowship leaders and many brothers and sisters, who prayed for me and cared for my daily needs, I completed two years of treatment with joy and confidence. I know that God has a wonderful plan for me. Time and again, the Holy Spirit has told me not to waste this illness, but to use my own experience to encourage and comfort other patients, so that they may feel the love of Christ.

Whenever I’m in pain or feel drained, I sing this song: Sing Hallelujah to the Lord! For I know that our Lord bore the punishment that brought us peace. By his wounds we are healed.
