Leadership Network Update

Yesterday was a full day. We went through some back-to-back sessions. But it was great to sit down some of the guys in ministry and talk about topics that applied to where we were at the present moment in ministry. I realized that getting into smaller group and just picking each other’s brains is helping […]

History Is Made

  Photo: Reuters       Tonight as we were eating dinner, some of the people who had iPhones were checking the election updates. By the time we were having dessert it was pretty clear that Obama won the election. When I got back to the hotel room, I was watching the concession speech by […]

In San Diego

I am out to San Diego for a Leadership Network conference. I am part of a learning community, which is made up of a small group of Asian-American pastors who are leading multi-ethnic churches around the U.S. I met up with Dave Lee at the airport and we headed out to our conference location. We […]

I Voted Today

Since I will not be here in Ann Arbor tomorrow, I ended up voting through an absentee ballot. In this historic election it felt good knowing that I took part in the process. But there is one confession. I did not know some of the candidates that were running for some of the smaller offices, […]

Jakarta Information Meeting

I am excited about this day. Not only is Pastor Paul Liu going to be speaking in both our Sunday Celebrations, but we will be having our Jakarta Church Plant information meeting. While I was out in Indonesia, I was able to meet some key people who will be able to open the door for […]

Hanging Out with Paul and Family

It has been great having Paul and his family hang out with us. Friday night, he shared from his life and some testimonies of the work that is being done in S.E. Asia. He has only been there for 3 years and already he is finding himself picking up more of the local language. It […]

Missions Week 2008

        I just got back from Jakarta. I can’t wait to share more of what God is doing in that part of the world this coming Sunday. It was great having a meal together with the family tonight. After all the meals on the road and all the company of people that […]

Jakarta Update 10.29.08

I am at Singapore’s Changi Airport right now (waiting for the ticket counter to open). Today, I had the opportunity to meet with Dan and Yonas for lunch in Karawaci. It was great talking about business and transforming society through various spheres. For some reason, whenever I am around business minded people they expand my […]

Jakarta Update 10.28.08

Today Lord woke me up early (5AM) therefore I had this strange feeling that He wanted me to intercede. I spent some time praying for Indonesia and the church plant in 2009. I headed out to Karawaci again this morning and went through the long one-hour commute. A person can possibly spend a quarter of […]

Jakarta Update 10.27.08

Today was a full day. Due to the limited time here in Jakarta, there have been back-to-back meetings with various people. I met up with Pastor Dave Kenney, from International English Service and talked about obtaining a religious visa so that our family can get into Indonesia. He’s a great guy. Over the years, I […]

Singapore Update 10.26.08

This morning we went to two church services. One was an Indonesian church that attracted a lot of the Indonesian speaking people in Singapore. They also have a translated English service where the congregation is a little bit more diverse. Then we headed out to a service where one of our alumni attends. After visiting […]

Singapore Update 10.25.08

I finally arrived in Singapore around 2:10AM! I was encouraged to see Jackson and Stephen waiting up for me to give me a ride to my hotel even though it was late. After a few hours of sleep, I met up with Jackson in the morning and spent some time catching up. We talked about […]

Layover in Japan 10.24.08

You know that you have to stop traveling when: 1) You have to start dating the entries because there is only so many ways to say that you are at a layover 2) You start recognizing and feeling a sense of comfort at particular airports 3) You have memorized all the free hotspots for Wi-Fi […]

Heading Out to Jakarta and Singapore

I am at the airport getting ready to board for my trip out to Jakarta and Singapore. I am looking forward to spending some time with our alumni in Singapore. It has been encouraging to know that some of them have been meeting together monthly. I am hoping that God will strengthen them and encourage […]
