Cambodia | Seventy Times Seven
November 4, 2009
“My name is ‘A’, and I am 16 years old. Thank you so much for producing this wonderful program, Happy Children’s Garden!
I have listened to the Happy Children’s Garden program since last year. I love the songs and the Bible stories in it. Each time I listen, I try to write the song down because I want to teach it to other children.
I’m still growing in Christ… even though I have accepted Christ as my Savior, there have been many times when I still felt discouraged.
One day, I got very discouraged because of something my friend did. I felt that I was not going to talk with her again for the rest of my life. However, when I arrived home that day, I heard your program and it spoke to me. I remember the story that day talked about Peter asking Jesus how many times he should forgive others. Jesus replied, ‘seventy times seven’.
Forgiveness! I knew about forgiveness in my mind, but I still didn’t want to forgive my friend. But at the close of the program, you reminded me of the verse from John 3:16.
‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’
When I heard that, God changed my mind immediately. I knew I had to go back and ask my friend to forgive me. God enabled me to do this.
Now, we are good friends again. I know that God wants me to show His love to this friend of mine. Please pray for me!”
Prayer and Praise
- Praise God for the work he is doing in the lives of young Cambodians like ‘A’.
