Gospel-preaching experience. I was coming from work on a Saturday from Phelan. And I noticed that I needed gasoline, but I didn’t want to stop in Phelan to get the fuel there. I had a sense to go to the gas station in Phelan anyway. When I stopped at the pump and got out, there was a man staring at me. He was big and looked like the military type. I was afraid of him, so I tried to avoid him. I went inside to pay, and when I got out to pump, the man was waiting for me. He was in between my car and the building entrance. When I saw him, I took a can of tear gas in my hand in case he would attack me. He looked at me intensely and asked what I have in my hand. I told him, “This is tear gas.” He said, “was I mean to you?” I said, “No.” I put back the tear gas into my pocket. I went to pass around him. He followed me and asked me if I was a priest. I didn’t answer, and he asked again louder, “ARE YOU A PRIEST?” I didn’t answer. When I was pumping the gas, he approached me and asked again, “ARE YOU A PRIEST?” (This whole time I was in my mind, but after he asked the third time, I turned to the Lord and asked Him, “Lord, do you want this man to be saved?” the Lord answered me, “Yes.” At that moment I was attached to the vine. I had the Lord’s authority.) I asked the man, “Do you believe in God?” He looked the other way and replied, “Well, yes.” Because I didn’t know what God is for him, I asked him again, “Do you believe in the Lord Jesus, He is God? The Bible says, if you believe in the Lord Jesus, you will be saved. Would you like to receive the Lord Jesus? Would you like to pray with me to receive the Lord Jesus?” When I said that, he grabbed my hand with his two hands. He closed his eyes. Then I told him, “The Bible also says that whoever calls on the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved. Repeat with me, Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus (he began to repeat), Lord I believe in You. I receive You as my savior. Forgive my sins. Come in to my spirit.” He prayed with me all of this. I told him, “Now you’re saved!” He opened his eyes, but would still not release my hands. He then said, “I killed many people. But, they were all bad.” I told him, “when you and I believe in the Lord Jesus, He forgave all our sins.” He looked at me, and I could see that he unloaded a big burden. And there was peace in him. And then he let my hand go.
•林子隆弟兄見證集• 第十五章 多次受苦的經歷（五） 五 四十天的監禁 求你領我出離被囚之地，我好稱讚你的名（詩一四二7上）。 借著你們的祈禱，和耶穌基督之靈的幫助，終必叫我得救（腓一19下）。 我回來以後，主不丟棄我，照樣讓我在教會中有事奉。從一九九一至一九九三年，神很祝福福清的福音工作，三年來全縣受浸的人數達到五千人。一九九二年後，教會開始注重青年信徒的造就。第一次只有幾十人，後來人數逐漸增加到幾百人，範圍也越來越大。有許多當年受成全的青年聖徒，今天已成為配搭的同工，在各地盡職。福清的弟兄們也被主帶到同心合意的地步。 一九九三年十二月，我又被拘在市拘留所裡，前後監禁了四十天，這是我第六次入獄。公安人員辦理好拘捕手續要把我帶走的時候，我請求他們讓我作一次禱告。那時，我的妻子、媳婦、一個孫女及一個外甥女站在我的身邊，我開口向主禱告：“主啊，你既然許可我再次進入苦難，我就求你給我夠用的恩典。我把自己奉獻給你，也把我一家的人交托給你，求你看顧她們，並保守她們在你的愛中…。”禱告完了，我就被送往福清市拘留所關押。 當我被關進一間號房時，就有一個管教幹部進來對犯人們說，“這個老人犯有心臟病，你們不可動他，出了事你們要負責。”隨後，又有一個監獄醫生來說，“這位老人是好人，不像你們為非作歹，你們要好好對待他…。”這兩個人我都不認識，竟然會如此關照我，實在是神的眷顧。幹部走後，號裡的犯人圍在我的身邊，問我是因什麼事被拘捕的。我說，“我是信耶穌的，因為教會的事被捕。”他們就開口罵道：“信主是叫人作好事，也給抓進來，政府真是亂來。”於是他們把號裡最好的鋪位讓給我，給我許多的照顧。我感激他們，更感謝愛我、保守我的主！ Source: http://www.graceterrace.com/linzilong-ch15-5/?lang=zh-hant
