Watchman Nee’s Testimony


Watchman Nee

Watchman Nee (1903-1972) served the Lord in China, spending the last twenty years of his life in a communist prison camp there as a witness to Christ. The Lord has used his books to bring many around the world into a deeper relationship with Himself and into the practical experience of the Body of Christ in genuine local churches.

In this small volume Watchman Nee relates some of his early experiences in learning to serve the Lord. In the introduction the compiler, Kwang-hsi Weigh, states:

These three testimonies were given by brother Watchman Nee in a co-worker’s meeting held at Kulangsu, an island off the southeastern coast of Fukien province, China, in 1936. As far as I know, this was the only occasion in his life on which he spoke about his personal affairs in detail….I hope that the readers will not pay attention to the person himself, but will pay attention to the work of the Lord in him, and to his willingness in allowing the Lord to perform His work.
