Finding God Through Google

Like many young people in China, Xiou H. is interested in learning English. One day while searching Google for websites that could help him do so, he came across, the Chinese/Cantonese website of Back to God Ministries International.

Xiou e-mailed Cheung Yun, producer of the “English World” and “Listen to My Heart” programs on the website: “At first I meant to learn more Cantonese and English, but beyond my expectations, I’ve got more than that—a spiritual revival! Though I have been an atheist all my life, from your program I am starting to learn that religion is very important to each human being.”

When the time seemed right, Cheung invited Xiou to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and earlier this year Xiou committed his life to the Lord. He now wants to lead his family “to walk in the path of God.”

While Xiou is searching for a church to join, Cheung encouraged him to grow in faith by reading the daily devotional at Xiou said the May 5 issue spoke to him personally. “In surrender to Christ, we find that destructive behavior is no longer dominating our lives. Each day our freedom grows and flourishes as we depend on God’s power and we grow in fellowship with other people Jesus has liberated.”

Xiou says he is grateful for all who make this ministry possible. “Thank you for your programs that have helped me. I know I still have a long way to go.”
