Grace Upon Grace & Glad to be in use for God

God rescued me from my lowest to 611 Bread of Life Church in 2011.

Jeff Chan

Over the past 12 years, I have experienced many blessings and turnarounds. From being at the lowest point in my life to restoring relationships with my family, from being confused about my future to being blessed in the workplace, from being poor to being financially blessed, from having low self-esteem to being in a blessed relationship and marriage, and to have a property and healthy and lovely child of my own. These blessings are all by God’s grace, and I am deeply grateful for them.

For the first few years at 611 Church, I felt a calling to serve God full-time. However, I was unsure when the right time would be. By the end of 2021, my 10th year in the workplace, I was wondering if I should spend another 10 years in the workplace, or if I should respond to God’s calling while I was still young. Finally, I chose the latter and believed that this was my true contentment and joy. It was not an easy decision, as I was newly married and making mortgage payments to our apartment. Yet I thank the Lord that with all the support and blessing of my key family members and boss, I was able to make it happen.

I have been studying at the Bible School for nearly two years now, and it has been a great place to learn about the truth of God. Through morning devotion, The Breath of the Tree of Life classes, and the exchanges with my teachers and classmates, the Holy Spirit has spoken into my life. 

In my first year, I learned to grow in love and trust. I experienced many blessings and challenges, including the birth of my child and hiring a maid in the midst of our financial deficit. However, I learned to have faith in God’s provision, and my wife got promoted in her workplace. I was even confirmed twice by prophets that “God had chosen me”. 

In my second year, I continued to grow from a follower to a leader, learning to communicate with authority and overcome my emotional suppression. I learned to love and accept myself and seek help from authority and teachers. Additionally, I learned to understand and meet my wife’s needs. Praise God that I have a wonderful and rich time of learning at the Bible School.
