Pursuing a life of passion, purpose, and principle

Transforming lives. Transforming the world.

Week Two in Indonesia

  It is hard to believe that we have been in Indonesia for about a week and a half. On one hand, it seems like we have been here for months and then on the other hand, it seems as if we just got here. With all the busyness in getting the house ready and […]

Every Opportunity

  The Apostle Paul said to the people of Colosse, “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Col 4:5-6). Apostle Paul is speaking to believers and reminding […]

Flexibility is the Key

  We are planning on getting our cell phones and SIM cards this Saturday (FINALLY). It is hard to believe that it has been about a week without a cell phone. I have been temporarily using someone else’s cell phone and another alumnus has given us another phone for our team to use. After dropping […]

Ministry is about Relationships

  Yesterday I played basketball with our guys and some college students who are back for summer vacation. The guys we played against played for the Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH) high school team (SPH is the international school that our kids will be going to at the end of July), therefore they were pretty good. […]

Driving in Indonesia

        Getting things done in Indonesia require “connections” – some are divine connections (sovereignly meeting people) and some are connections through people that we got introduced to through our alumni. I am thankful for our alumni because they know a lot of key people. They have been helpful in getting us connected […]

Getting Settled

  Yesterday we had a great opportunity to worship together with other English speaking people at a well-known international church in Jakarta. The familiarity of the songs helped us engage in worship. Afterwards, we went out with a handful of people who knew about us wanting to start an international church. It was great just […]

Touchdown in Jakarta

  It was a blessing to see some of the alumni come out to the airport to see us off to Jakarta. For some reason, I get this feeling that this Jakarta church will go beyond just Ann Arbor people planting it. There are people around the world, who are supporting and praying for what […]

Transitioning in Singapore

  We got in to Singapore safely. It was a long flight but my family and the team made it by God’s grace. We were picked up at the airport by several of our alumni around 1AM! We went directly to a retreat center and then spent all of Thursday just resting. One of our […]

Our Step of Faith

  Today has finally arrived. Pretty much, Christina and I stayed up all-night trying to finish up last minute cleaning and packing (well, it was more because of my stuff). As we got picked up to go to the airport, Christina and I did a double check to make sure that we did not leave […]

Jakarta Send Off Service

        Today, we had our send off service for the Jakarta Team. Christina said that I would tear up sometime during my sermon. I challenged her to place a bet on it. Let’s just say that I got on the stage and didn’t even say a word and I lost it. I […]

Independence 2009

        Since I am an Asian-American, I try my best to walk in between the two cultures. But sometimes I find myself identifying more with the American culture… I guess it depends on the situation. Even when Korea was playing the United States in the FIFA World Cup in 2002, I found […]

To Be a Man

  Photo by Warners Bro. 300 Movie       In our society we have been conditioned to define manhood by all the wrong factors. If you ask some people to define manhood, you would be amazed to see some of the responses. Some people would define manhood by their first sexual encounter or their […]
