Testimony| April 2021| Tokmok Christian School of Blessing
“Our school is unique in that we have the opportunity to hear God's Word not only in Bible class but also in other classes. Our classroom teacher and English teacher interpret Bible stories into his subject that affect our spiritual well-being. He and the other teachers are very attentive to each of us, showing their love and care.
I also love the way our Bible class teacher teaches us his lessons.
Because of the knowledge, I am getting in this class, I began to look at my life from a different perspective. I used to have a lot of frustrations in my life because of my relationship issues with my mother. I could not find true friends, and I also had health problems. Because of all these problems, I was often depressed and couldn’t see the meaning of my life. The more I learned about God, the more I wanted to accept Him in my life because I realized that He is the only answer for me to be free from my pain and live differently.
On March 7, 2021, I made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I repented and received new Hope and Faith. Since my decision, my life has not been perfect. I sometimes have misunderstandings with my parents and friends, and I still have health problems. But because I gave all my problems and needs to the Lord, my relationship with my parents is getting better and it is no longer difficult for me to be obedient. I started going to church. There I made better friends, and I enjoyed being with them. I read the Bible and know almost by heart the Gospel of Luke. Thanks to God's love which I personally experienced, I also have a desire to do better for people around me.
I am very grateful to God that I have the opportunity to study at this school. The school fosters spiritual and moral character in me, which are positively impacting my life. Thanks to God, I started to understand more about myself and learn what I need to give up in order to correct my mistakes. It helped me to have good relationships with family and friends”.
