Popular Taiwan film celebrity and television show host Chien-chou Chen (Charles), also known as Blackie is dark-skinned, 190 cm tall, compassionate, and eager to help character are all very familiar to most people.
Several days ago, Blackie appeared at the “I Wish’ press conference held in Bay Area, California. While speaking to numerous North American Chinese media, he shared honestly his experience of believing in the Lord, and stated that faith has completely changed his values.
In 2002, when he first began to join World Vision, said Chen, he was not a Christian for several years later, but until he met a Christian celebrity, who is also his current girl friend ‘Fan Fan’ – Christine Fan.
“Fan Fan is God’s greatest gift to me," he said.
Blackie confessed that when he first became a Christian he only held onto the very simple thought, which is hoping to go to heaven together with the loved ones.
At that time, he didn’t have the habit of reading the Bible. There was one time when his girl friend Fan Fan had to leave Taiwan for a period of time for work and his home is under remodeling, so without a place to live he stayed at Fan Fan’s home together with Fan’s mother.
Fan’s mother is a devout Christian and a deacon at a church. After finished watching Korean drama at 9:30 p.m., she would announce that “It is Bible time.” Then, she and Blackie would read the Bible by taking turns after each comma. In the beginning, he really felt uncomfortable, but he slowly got to know many stories in the Bible. Then, he started to like the bible and began a true faith.
“I really love the Lord! What I regret the most is that I didn’t come to know the Lord earlier! Faith completely changed my values. Now, I am not afraid to face anything, because I know that there is a God who really loves me, He will help me, guide me, and make my cup of blessings overflow," shared the Taiwanese pop-star.
