It was my lifelong mentor who introduced your great website to me. As a new, self-made and "unofficial" Christian in mainland China, I had felt rather "helpless" to explore and expand the horizon of Christian world. Once taking a glimpse of your vast contents, I knew that I found my family! "Our Daily Bread" is most close to my heart, and I have been too hungry to wait for the update of your daily piece! It turns into a kind of addition. The most amazing thing is that I have even noticed my changes each day, though it might be small and insignificance. Now I come to write the self journal titled "My Daily Recipe", the "brainchild" of your "Bread", where I drop down any good deed I make or any bad habit/deed I eliminate/suppress every day, no matter how tiny it could be. I become happier day by day, because I feel our Holy father is watching me and listening to me, most lovingly every moment. I will never be lonely in our Christian family. I believe I could cook most delicious feast under my recipes inspired by your rich bread!
Our Chinese Spring Festival is fast approaching. Although it is not a Christian holiday, I would like to wish our Father and all our family members happy and peace every day in the Year of Sheep!Read
Last year my husband retired after 31 years of military service, including time in Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. I took note of a magazine article he was reading this week. It was titled "Alive Day". In it were written the stories of various people who had faced a particular day in their military service when something took place that could have ended their lives. These people recognize the anniversary of this date annually. It was described as the "day they were wounded, and their lives were changed".
Christians have a similar day in our lives, although most of us do not recognize it annually. We may share our testimony from time to time, but it might be a good idea to practice celebrating our own "ALIVE DAY". We would celebrate the time when we came to know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and be born into life eternal.
We need to thank all those who serve in our armed forces for their service and protection of the freedoms that we enjoy in this great country. We also need to thank The Lord for his provision of our own individual "Alive Day".Read

I AM OVERJOYED AND OVERWHELMED BY THE POWER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND WHAT HE HAS DONE IN MY LIFE.
I WAS A DRUG ADDICT, LUST IN THE WORLD , COMMITING CRIMES ON DAILY BASIS. I WAS IN AND OUT OF JAILS FOR OVER TEN YEARS.
SEVEN YEARS AGO I ENDED UP IN A CELL, ALONE, CONFUSED , EMPTY, AND DESPERATE.
WERE I FOR THE FIRST TIME OPENED A BIBLE, AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME IN JEREMIAH 33:3,
AS MY EYES WENT STRAIGHT TO THIS VERSE I STARTED TO CRY DESPERATELY AND FULL OF JOY KNOWING THAT GOD WAS SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO ME. "CALL ON TO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER YOU, AND SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS YOU DO NOT KNOW" (JER. 33:3) AS I STARTED TO READ THE BIBLE I COULD'NT
STOP CRYING AND TO KNOW I HAD A SAVIOR THAT LOVED ME SO MUCH, AND I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT HIM.
I FELL IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
I WAS FACING 25 TO LIFE , AND YET THE LORD HAD SET ME FREE. I HAD SURRENDER MY LIFE TO JESUS.
I REMEMBER ASKING HIM, THAT ALL I WANTED WAS TO COME OUT DIFFERENT, TO SERVE HIM, AND IF IT MEANT FOR ME TO STAY IN JAIL FOR LIFE, TO USE ME FOR THE GLORY OF HIS NAME.
AS TIME WENT BY I WAS SENTENCED TO PRISON WERE I ENCOUNTER TO LIVE WITH LIFERS. JOYFUL AND TRUSTING IN MY SAVIOR I WAS RELEASED AFTER SERVING 17 MONTHS.
IT HAS BEEN A HARD WALK AS HE HAS TAUGHT ME TO GROW IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF MY LIFE, BUT I HAVE SUBMMITTED TO DO HIS WILL.
TODAY I VOLUNTEER IN JAILS AND I ALSO SPEAK ON THE RADIO IN A MINISTRY THATS CALLED
"I WAS IN JAIL, AND YOU CAME TO ME"...
THE LORD HAS RESTORE MY CHILDRENS ,AFTER SPENDING TEN YEARS WITHOUT THEM, HE HAS EQUIPT ME TO INSTRUCT THEM IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD, THEY ARE ALL SAVED, AND FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, ONE OF THEM IS GETTING BAPTIZED.
ONE THING I MUST SAY AS I STARTED MY WALK WITH THE LORD IN JAIL, RBC MINISTRY WAS A GREAT PART OF MY WALK. AND WHEN I CAME OUT IT KEPT ON LEADING ME TO MY DAILY SCRIPTURES AND WALK WITH THE LORD.
I MAY NOT HAVE MUCH MY BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTER, BUT I HAVE A LOT OF LOVE FOR YOUR MINISTRY AND GRATITUDE FOR YOU WERE A GREAT DEAL IN MY WALK. BY GRACE I RECIVED, AND BY GRACE I GIVE WHAT THE LORD HAS STORED IN MY HEART. GOD BLESS YOUR MINISTRY, YOU TOUCH A LOT OF HEARTS IN JAILS, AS I GO TWICE A WEEK, ONE THING I NOTICE IS THE WOMANS IN THERE ALWAYS HAVE A DAILY BREAD FROM RBC. MAY MY TESTIMONY FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO CONTINUE IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD. THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SHARE MY TESTIMONY, AND MAY THE PEACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ALWAYS BE WITH YOU...Read
Hello. I use to get Daily Bread a long time in the mail. Then I got a divorce and it all stop.
I friend of mine told me tonight that you had a website here and I can get on and get my Daily Bread there. I was really happy to hear about it cause this is what I need right now. I have been going through so much in my life that I need some devotional reading to do on my break time and really any time I needed some encouragement or just to feel God close.
I just want to thank you for being here and I have you now on my mobile so I can take you anywhere!
