About sun down, a white man with heavy British or Scottish accent walked to me and waved his hand around my throat, and said with a loud voice, "You are not allow to do so. You cannot preach to other people's throat and push what you believed is true down to their throat. They have rights to believe whatever they want to believe. Stop doing this or someone will slice your throat in return." He almost was screaming and I was shocked for a while. Then I told him to keep his hands off me as that is insult. If he kept punching my body, I would call the police. He continued to yell at me and asked me to stop proclaiming the gospel as well as handing out the tracts. Slowly I picked up my strength and told him clearly that I have the right to speak and this country protects the freedom of speech. People can choose to listen or not, accept or not. You and others have no rights to attack me physically or ask me to stop doing what I love to do. He became even furiously and continued yelling at the top of his lung at me. I repeated twice that he must not insult me by words or I would call the police. Due to my cold responses, he started to walk away and made action like slicing my throat. I shouted back to him with calm," May the Lord bless you." He almost burst to laugh when he heard my blessing.
Did his malicious words hurt me deeply? when I noticed other people started to look away from my eye contact, my heart was almost crying. What a shame the man had brought to me. He made me like a criminal or a bad person who wronged him. I prayed to G-d to give me peace and strength to finish what He wants me to do. I recovered slowly from his attack and abusive words. That time, I also learned that evil words have powers as well. Yet, with His Love, we can overcome this world.
I love what I do because what I do is to follow what the Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to do. I long not any men's praise or approve but try to serve my Lord with a pure heart. He is greater than any one in this world. As apostle Paul wrote, \\ If you suffer for doing good, it pleases G-d. \\. May His Name be lifted high. Amen.
