A Bachelor in China Finds Contentment Through God’s Word
“I am a bachelor and God’s Word is everything I have… I am content.”
Loneliness was just part of Wang Jinting’s life. He accepted it. Born into poverty, Wang felt he had little to offer a wife. He lived alone in a small home. His garden was his only source of income.
When he became ill with pulmonary disease, Wang thought he would die just as he lived… all alone.
Out of desperation, Wang began attending a local church. The church members prayed for Wang, and he became healthier! Wang decided to follow Christ.
But like so many other new believers in China, Wang desperately wanted a Bible of his own to help deepen his faith. Thanks to our financial partners, friends of American Bible Society visited his village with Bibles!
From that moment, Wang was never alone again. “I am a bachelor and God’s Word is everything I have,” he says. “When I have free time, I read. The Bible is my daily life. I receive energy from reading. I must read to know God’s will.”
Now Wang spends his days serving others in contentment. “[The Bible says] if we have food and covering, we should be content. I am content. In fact, when my crops are harvested, I will go to the city and help cook food for the Bible Training School students.”
Wang’s life is full of companionship with brothers and sisters in Christ… and his Heavenly Father, thanks to the faithfulness of our financial partners who help people engage in God’s Word.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
