The Bloom Family to China

I was born into a loving Christian home, where as long as I can remember my parents would take me to church and teach me about the Bible.  I grew up knowing the Bible stories and knowing about how Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead, but it wasn’t personal.  I knew about Jesus, but I didn’t know why I needed Him.  As I began to get older, eleven, twelve, thirteen I started realizing that some of the things that I did were wicked and wrong and that God wasn’t happy with them.  I thought if I kept doing those things, then I would go to hell, so I tried to stop doing those things.  I would try hard to stop sinning, but I would always mess up.  Finally after struggling like this for a few years, when I was fourteen I came to a breaking point and realized that I needed God`s help.  I still didn`t understand the Gospel and that no matter how good I acted that I was still a hell-bound sinner, but I think God used this point to start showing me my need of a Saviour.  In the next four years, I started listening to sermons that a preacher preached through the book of Hebrews and Romans.  I remember him explaining how the Bible teaches that Jesus` blood is able to pay for every single sin.  I finally came to a point when I was eighteen years old as I was working out in the yard while listening to a sermon from the book of Hebrews that I realized that it wasn`t about what I did, but what about He did on the cross. I realized that I didn’t measure up and I trusted in what Jesus did on the cross to save me from my sin. I trusted Jesus to make me right with God.  This is how I came to know Christ.  This is how I fell in love with the Gospel.  It is my favorite story!  How Jesus died for the sins of the whole world, was buried, and then was raised from the dead.  I hope to be able to tell the millions of people in China about this wonderful news.
