My life When I was young, I was naughty and fat, people often called me Fat boy. And I wasnt very pleased that people called me fat. I went to church with my parents and younger sister. But at that time, I didnt enjoy going to the church, what I enjoyed most was playing game boy after church. Also, I was quite naughty as I said, can you imagine that in a Maths lesson, someone jumping out of their sent when the teacher is not looking? Yes, that was me. I think I am a lucky boy, because I know God when I was young. When I went to school in Hong Kong, I usually went with my sister, Heidi. We needed to catch the bus every day. I think it is because of this, my sister and I are good runners. Once, we missed the bus that we usually went for, so we waited for another for a long time. Suddenly, my sister said Should we pray to God, brother? So then we prayed together. After we opened our eyes, we saw the bus we needed! My sister and I were so happy! And I felt close to God, because God helped me. When I was a first former, I was studying in Hong Kong. But in the middle of my first year, my friend asked me to go to study in Christ College. When my parents knew this, we pray, my friend told me to go, to learn more things, which I couldn't learn in Hong Kong and I would also learn more English, but my piano teacher told me that I would spend a lot of money on school, flights and miss the time with my parents. Finally, I made my final decision, I went. It was so that I would learn more and have more hoildays. When I first came, I couldn't speak much English and I couldn't do any thing with it. When people told me some jokes, I didn't laugh. When people called me fat, I laughed. I couldn't speak like a normal person, and I didn't try to talk to those people. I couldn't play rugby and hockey. People thought that I was strange. But what could I do? Some people said I put some chocolate in the sink! What could I do about it? I couldn't do anythings, because I lost everything. So I cried, because I felt bad, I lost somethings which I didn't know what it was. I talked with the people who are in the bible study. I told them 'I can feel something empty in my heart, but I don't know what it is.' They tried to think what it was, but it didn't work. I felt empty. I wanted to be better, so I started to read the bible everyday, and go to church, I did more things which I think God would like. And it helps. I can speak more English and I write down a happy thing for each day, I call it 'How God helps me', because my mum told me to write a happy thing to make me happier. I though this is the end of my unhappy life. But although God is near me, he would still make some challenges for me. In my first term in third form, I found out that some people didn't like me. Some people didn't talk. I told the people who are in the Bible study that some people didn't like me. Then one of them said 'You need to remember 'God loves you. Although everyone doesn't like you, God still loves you. Pray more.' Even though we are naughy, sad, have no friends, are fat or don't know God, God still loves us. So I looked at the mirror in the morning, then said 'God loves me'. Finally, I found out why my heart was empty, it was because I lost the love from people and God. I didn't know love is that important in the past. So, I try to love everyone, my friends, my teachers, my parents.And I will do as Jesus did, love people first. It is all because of love. If this world doesn't have love, you will have no friends. If Jesus hadn't loved us, he wouldn't have died on the cross. Look at Jesus, he chose to die for us, he sacrificed himself for millions of people. Do you know when Jesus was on the cross, he didn't wear anything. His blood was all over his body. So, I hope that you can love people as Jesus loves us. And remember all we need, is God.
