Hi, everyone! Nice to meet you here.

My name is Jonathan Tsao. My father picked out this name for me because he expected me to be always "under Jesus’s protection and filled with God’s grace.” I was born and raised in a pious Christian family. The Bible stories have been told to me over and over again, and the Bible pages have been viewed endless times. But my spiritual life hasn't been improved at all

However, even in the sixteen years of idleness, my life was still filled with the grace from God. Out of my rebellion, I tried running away from home three times. I not only left my home, but I left God. In retrospect, I really thank God He still took care of me and helped me come back home safe.

When I was 15 years old, David and I signed up for Duathlon. It was the boldest decision I made in that year. It was a rainy day in winter and the wind was blowing very hard. Before heading for that place, I kept reciting the quotation printed on my wallet “Be strong” in Joshua 1:9. No matter in running or cycling, I mumbled the quotation and prayed He kept me sound and safe till the competition ended. That was my first time experiencing God’s grace after I had left God for so long. From that time on, I decided to come back to His side. God not only became a true figure in the Bible stories but became the only God in my heart. I started to participate in various discipleship courses from church.

After having decided to get baptized, I joined the rite of Passage held by my school. My parents passed a letter to me before the ceremony started. It was about the blessings and expectations they had for me, and then my teacher told everyone to write down our thankfulness to our parents. After reading the letter, I was in tears because I thought of my parents’ concern and love that God gave to me. I’m very grateful to God for giving me many elders and friends who love me so much .Thank God for letting me meet Him when I was young.

Glory to our Lord!
