For a long time, I wanted to participate in the ministry of my church, but I didn’t know what I could do. I don’t have a good singing voice and am not able to play music. I didn’t think I would be very good at welcoming people to the services. I didn’t have the ability to interpret the sermon for others. I was confused. What could I do as my ministry? Then, I felt God speaking into my heart, ‘Lina, you can write articles for the church magazine. ’ Without hesitation, I began writing and sending in articles regularly and some of them appeared in the magazine.

Some of my friends told me that they were blessed by my writing. I thanked God for this opportunity to serve.Ministry is not merely serving inside the church. God has many ways for us to serve – caring for children, elderly people, widows or for someone in need. We also can be good listeners. When we serve God with all our heart, we will shine like stars in the world. Finally we will hear the King say to us, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’.
Prayer: Beloved God, open our eyes and hearts so we can see the opportunities you give us to serve others. Amen

Would it be possible to have a section where the Gospel is explained for Deaf people who are not yet true Christians to view? Maybe it could be a translation of a good tract? In fact, as Christians, we can never study the Gospel message enough for as we grasp it more and more our love for God grows and compels us to share it with others. God bless your endeavours for Him KS
