Raymond’s Christian Testimony

It was at a time during a day when I was so disappointed in my overall performance in class. I was in a primary school (grade five) trying get into grade six. I was in a foreign country and I knew for sure I wasn’t going to make it to the next level. The fact of the matter is that I didn’t know English and this school offered all the courses in this language that I didn’t understand. Also, it was over 12 different subjects (classes) that I had to pass regardless of my English ability.

Of course there was no way I was going to make it. Meanwhile, I am not a very bright person when comes to school, so I had repeated a lot in the past and it was about to happen again! I was getting way too old in comparison to my classmates. I couldn’t take it anymore.

When the time came, we did all our final tests and I realized there was no way I was going to make it. One thing I really had was faith in God. I had asked Him to let His angels answer the tests for me and God didn’t. Therefore, I was so disappointed but believed I could do more. So I decided to write a letter directly to God while nobody was around in class; I asked Him to please let me pass on to the next grade–at least on trial.

I folded a letter very well, smart and clean, and whatever I wrote was in capital letters for I believed that God was very almighty, holy and powerful. I went downstairs in a place where there was a pole, with nobody to see me but God. I closed my eyes faithfully and cried to Him to send His angel from heaven to come get the letter and take it to Him. I said the prayer of our Father the first time. As I prayed with my eyes closed, I felt a wind blow around me from nowhere so I opened my eyes after the prayer only to see the letter still in my hands. I became more intense and with even more faith I closed my eyes again and said the prayer of our Father for the second time, and the I felt the wind blow around me, this time stronger than the first time. Then, after the prayer, before I had given up I guess, I opened my eyes only to find that the letter was gone out of my hands! How amazing that was! I didn’t believe it myself. I looked around and around again and again but didn’t find anything at all. I found out that when the test results came back at the end of the semester, I had earned exactly what I had asked God in that letter to give to me. I had been allowed to go to the next grade (6) on trial.

Ever since then I have always passed one grade after the other in first class honor. My life continuously continues to surprise me every singe day.

To God be the glory.

    That’s cool – God works in miraculous and mysterious ways! All we have to do is have faith (we may not get the answers the way we think we will, but He does answer in His time. Blessed are those who still believe and have faith, even though they may not see the answer right away. God is always faithful and will take care of our needs. Thanks for sharing!
