Personal Retreat 2008

I am heading out for a couple of days for a personal retreat. There are a lot of things to pray through, especially in light of everything that is going on in our churches and the things that are to come this year. I have been sharing with people that when we fail to take […]

Motorcycle Day of Destiny

Yesterday, before I headed back to Ann Arbor, I had the opportunity to meet up with my friends, Steve Lee, Peter Kim, and Dave Lee for a quick lunch. It was good to catch up with Steve one last time before they headed back out to Kenya. Afterwards we went to Chicago Cycle to “just […]

Tyler’s 2 Years Old Gathering

On Sunday, the family and I meant up with Christina’s side of the family to celebrate Tyler’s birthday. He is 2 years old and our kids love their cousin. It is incredible to see how a kid grows up so quickly. I was reminded of the time when our kids were at Tyler’s age. He […]

Sunday at HMCC of Chicago 08.17.08

It was great worshipping with the HMCC family in Chicago. Usually when I am there, I am preaching. But this past Sunday I was able to just worship the Lord by giving the announcements and hearing Pastor Jimmy preach. Some people in our church like to call my announcement giving as “sermon-noucements” but I like […]

Atlanta Update 2

Yesterday, we had to change our plans. The Georgian schools started this week (early huh?) and Six Flags changed their hours of operation to only the weekends. One thing I have learned over the years is that you have to be “flexible” in everything. If not, then life will become difficult – not only for […]

Atlanta Update 1

The family and I arrived in Atlanta yesterday. We were greeted by Pastor Matt and ended up having lunch together. Then, the family and I went to the World of Coke. It was great learning about the history of Coca-Cola. The best part was being able to taste close to 64 different flavors of Coke […]

Whites in the Minority by 2042

The United States has always prided itself in being a “melting pot.” Now, with the latest predictions by the U.S. Census, it is estimated that by 2042 (in about 34 years) the “Whites” in America will become the minority. It will be pretty interesting to see how things will play out in terms of prejudice […]

An Incredible Conversion

    Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a Hamas leader     I don’t know if you have heard about the conversion of Mosab Hassan Yousef from Islam to Christianity; but this is no ordinary conversion. Yousef is the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the most influential leaders of the militant Hamas […]

Heading Out to Chicago – August 2008

This morning, the family and I are driving out to Chicago to spend some time with our extended family before all the craziness of a new season of ministry starts. We will also spend a few days out in Atlanta with Pastor Matt and the JCA family. They have been so gracious and generous to […]

Chinky-Eyed Mistake

Praise God for the Olympics. There are so many illustrations to choose from, it is truly a preacher’s banquet to feast upon.           If you look at this picture carefully, you will realize that the Spain’s Olympic basketball team is posing by making slit-eyes with their fingers. Wow! And this is […]

Not Pretty Enough for the Olympics

There was an interesting fact that surfaced right after the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The little Chinese 9 year old girl, Lin Miaoke that sang the Chinese patriotic song for the ceremonies really did not sing the song! She was lip-syncing to the voice of another 7 year old Chinese girl, Yang […]

Hanging Out with the Boys

Today Christina spent some personal time with Karissa, while I took the boys out. As the kids are getting older, I am seeing the importance of having the girls’ day out and the boys’ day out. It allows the children to observe and learn various manhood and womanhood principles from the parents. In the future, […]

Covenant BBQ

It was great hanging out with some of the married couples in our church yesterday. Dr. Peter and Dr. Clara opened up their new home to all the Covenant groups in our church. Throughout this summer we have broken up into smaller group (3-4 couples) so that deeper relationships can be built. But yesterday was […]

AMI Pastors’ Summit Update 2

In the afternoon session, we had the opportunity to hear about what God is doing in all of our missionary post around the world. The testimonies were powerful. There were stories of divine connections and appointments, Chinese nationals coming to Christ, business opportunities for missions work, and etc. It was a fresh reminder that God […]
