A chance opportunity in 2011 allowed me to come to Brazil from China. When I had just arrived, I was overwhelmed with fresh and new experiences and filled with curiosity, and I had a good feeling about the future. But after some time, this fresh and new feeling was quickly replaced by the loneliness and pain of finding myself in a far-off foreign land.

Ever since she was little, the main character went to church along with her parents, but later in her life she starts to feel spiritually empty and grows distant from the Lord. By chance, she and her husband stumble upon a movie online made by The Church of Almighty God, called Yearning. She hears the words of Almighty God and feels that they possess power and authority, and she feels certain within her heart that they are the voice of God. By watching the movie, she learns that the Lord Jesus has already come in secret, that He is Almighty God—she is elated, and continues to seek and investigate. By reading Almighty God’s words, she becomes utterly certain that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus. She accepts His work of the last days and attends the wedding feast of the Lamb.
