Dive In – Kyle’s Testimony

{story originally shared during the Grace Extended service on March 29, 2014}

“Hi everybody, I’m Kyle. I came to China about two and half years ago to be with Liuqi, who is now my wife. Liuqi’s mother was attending the Chinese seminary school at the Chinese church here and she told Liuqi and I about this foreigner service. I really wanted to attend. I hadn’t been to church since I arrived in China. To be honest when I got here I think I hadn’t talked to a foreigner in over a month. I was nervous. I came to a GE service and was just listening to the worship and watching the service and I could just feel the Holy Spirit moving in this church and the power of God right there in that room. I had to be a part of it. I must have been a little over-eager because I was running around trying to be a part of it somewhere, trying to get involved in AGIF!

I started singing on the worship team and helping out with the sound. I think at that time they didn’t really need much help but eventually I just started showing up on Saturdays whether I was scheduled or not. I just needed to be here serving God. I needed to be the hands and feet of the body of Christ as an active member of his church.

God is always working around you. He is always doing things. It’s our job to find where he is working and join him there and be a part of it. People are always talking about “God’s plan for their life,” but God has a plan. He’s doing stuff right here, right now. What are you doing?

I know what my spiritual gifts are and I can tell you that as a Christian nothing will give you a sense of joy and fulfillment deep down inside like knowing your exactly where God wants you to be doing exactly what he wants you to do. I can’t tell you what it’s done for my marriage and my spiritual walk, daily, just serving Him.

It’s an honor to be a part of this body. I encourage each of you to become an active member of AGIF. Whether you are serving coffee, or helping run wires before the service, it all needs to be done and it’s all part of what God’s doing here. It enables this whole body to go out into shanghai and be a powerful witness for Christ.”
