The Church of God which allows me to see the vision
Hello. I am a member of the World Mission Society Church of God. I want to tell you about how I came to attend the Church of God. It was when I returned home from England and stayed at my sister’s home. She told me she was attending church with a middle aged woman who lived on the floor above and during my absence, they became friends. She told me all the amazing things the middle aged woman had told her. My father’s family was Catholic and my mother’s side of the family worshiped our ancestral gods. So the doctrine of Christianity was familiar to me and the religion which my mother’s family believed in was about a woman god who will save the world in the last days. That’s why I thought what she was saying about her church was not unreasonable. I just thought ‘Oh! There is a religion which is similar to the religion that my mother believes in. It seemed that she was studying God’s word in the Church of God. So she called and told me when she wanted to show me a presentation. It was the prophecy of Daniel and as soon as I heard it I became angry. I raised my voice at her and said, “So, are you saying that the Pope is Satan?”, however, she just kept asking me to listen. I felt uncomfortable talking with her and avoided meeting her. After several months went by, she called me again. She invited me over to her home. I said that I would gladly go because I wanted to see my nephew. She came to meet me at the subway and said that she had to go and get her son’s hat because she for got it. So I went with her and arrived at the Church of God. When the door of the elevator was opened, the picture of the last supper, the Passover, jumped into my eyes and I was surprised. I waited outside without taking off my shoes. Then the members of the Church of God kindly guided me to come in. That day is my spiritual birthday when I was born anew. Thinking about it, my sister and group leader had already made plans to guide me. so i followed my sister and went to the church and was baptized, however, inwardly I was a little perplexed. After baptism, I wanted to go home immediately but because of my nephew, I stayed overnight at my sister’s home and then went back to my place. After that, I didn’t receive any contact from her. I felt uncomfortable, frustrated and scared. I was lost in thought for about a week. So I told my situation to my friend who lived with me together in Seoul, then she said she had always been curious about the Creation. So she recommended going together to church to find out about the Creation. After that, my friend and I studied God’s work together and my friend even received the truth. And although I realized too late, the reason why God made my friend and I live together, was so we would be God’s fellow workers in the gospel. In the meantime, I returned to Daegu because the preparation to study aboard in Australia was finished. A few days before I was set to go to Australia, my sister earnestly asked me for a big favor. Since Passover was in a few days, she asked if I could delay the flight a couple of days and keep the Passover. I said that I would keep the Passover in Australia and I really did have a mind to keep it. However, God guided me to keep the Passover in Korea and increased my faith. While staying at my brother’s home, for a brief period his son, my second nephew became very sick because of atopy. He asked me to delay my trip by one month to go to Australia. Then he asked me to take care of his house, because his wife couldn’t do anything else other than care for their son. And he promised that he would buy me another airplane ticket. So I decided to keep the Passover in Korea and helped out with taking care of his household as well as studied the world of God in Zion and continued my young adult life like that. I had a great ambition in the world, but I saw the vision of the gospel, so I decided to take on the responsibility required of me as a gospel worker and preached the gospel diligently rather than go study abroad. In the meantime God made me a fellow worker of the gospel, so I am to participate in the gospel work until today. I truly give thanks to Heavenly Father, Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for letting me have this precious blessing.
