Testimony – Sylvia Kim

I was blessed enough to be born and raised in a Christian home. All throughout my childhood, I never missed church, loved to sing and dance to worship songs every Sunday. But as I grew up and entered into my teenage years, it was no longer about the Sunday school songs and the pleasant stories I heard about Jesus. Church became more of a social network to hang out with friends than a place of worship. I always wanted to fit in with the kids at church because I felt like I was always the outcast in school since the move I had in 2nd grade from Korea to the United States. To be more involved at the church, I served and became a student leader. I never really knew what it really meant to serve God but the winter retreat I went to in 7th grade has really changed my life. The guest speaker was talking about the love of Jesus how He died for our sins on the cross and rose again from the grave. At the end of the message, he brought out a notebook and a pen to write down your name if you felt in your heart you wanted to dedicate your life to Him. Something in my heart tugged and I decided to write my name on the book. Shortly after in April, I was baptized and accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior. Though I didn’t fully understand in 7th grade what it meant to write my name on that notebook, I am slowly but surely understanding the love that the Father has for me. I am a sinner but I know that Christ died for my sins (1 Peter 3:18) and His grace is sufficient for me (2 Corin. 12:9). No matter how hard the circumstances nor how big my sin is God is always faithful. He will never leave me nor forsake me, I believe that Jesus will make my difficult situations into a path I can walk on. (Isaiah 49:11)
