Jesus Christ and to know the deeper meaning of the Christian life. They

background. My parents and grandparents were all strong Christians. … the
Bible was one of the first books I learned to read. … I loved to gather
around the piano with dad, my sister, and my three brothers and sing while
mom played hymns. … During my college years, the Lord seemed to fade into
the background. Then, in the middle of a hardship I cried out to Him, ``God,
where is the love!'' … an acquaintance of mine invited me to a meeting of
the local church. There was so much life and light! The singing was so
enjoyable that I felt as if I had never really sung before. … twenty-six
rich years have passed. … I can't express enough the thanksgiving in my
heart for the help I have received through the church meetings and the
ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.. T.A.
