Testimony| june 2023| Tokmok Christian School of Blessing
Hello! My name is Dayana. This year I graduated from Ak-Bata School. I would like to tell you my story of how I met God and how He changed my life.
I attended Ak-Bata Christian School for eleven years. Since first grade we had Bible classes and were introduced to the Lord, but I think because my family never held to the faith, the topic of faith and God didn't come up for us for a long time. The only link I had with God was my grandmother, who always read me the Bible and taught me how to pray. The time came when my grandmother passed away, I had moved on to high school at the time. So, the link that connected me to God broke, and unfortunately, I lost my faith.
And then came the eleventh grade graduation, a lot of worries, exams, stress, and admission to the University. It was hard to handle everything alone but the feeling that Someone was watching over me and protecting me never left me. In the middle of the year one situation happened and I lost all my friends. I thought I was going to be alone but it was like Someone was pulling me to ask for help from believers, so I went to talk to my spiritual coordinators. For the first time in my life, I had the courage to ask for help instead of fighting everything on my own as usual. I received help from the spiritual coordinators of the school, who talked to me, prayed for me, and guided me to go to the the Tokmok Gym, where Sunday service for children and youth are held. I thought for a long time about whether I should go, I had a lot of doubts but again it was like Someone pushed me, and I finally decided to go. I have never been happier after spending two hours with people who were new to me. I was greatly inspired by the community that surrounded me at the Tokmok Gym, which seemed to me extremely comfortable and incredibly sunny. Walking out of the hall I felt light like a huge burden had fallen from my shoulders. And now it seems that I have begun to live in harmony with God and myself, I no longer hide from family, I no longer depend on the opinion of society, I became interested in studying the Bible. I feel like a little girl again, I feel the warmth my grandmother gave me when she prayed together. I feel supported again, I feel alive again. And for that I am more than grateful to God that He allowed me to believe in His power again!
