I still cannot believe what He let me be a part of! It was extremely hard at times with many struggles, but what I received is way more than I would have ever thought or imagined. It was because of obedience. It was because He knows what's best for me, I don't. We think we do, but we don't.
If Glenn and I would have said, no, we would have missed some of the biggest blessings of our life! Making life-long relationships with Chinese students, sharing the "greatest news" with some, getting to be in the classroom with them each week doing our best to teach them our language, living life with them on campus, worshipping with some, celebrating with them in their accomplishments, listening to their hearts.... And in all of this, becoming changed more for Him! We LOVE Chinese students so much and in the years to come we look forward to building relationships with more Chinese on campuses, continuing communication with all of our Chinese friends still in their homeland, ministering to our Chinese friends that have come abroad and sharing with many how the hardest thing that God asks you to do will actually bless your socks off! You won't believe what He will do with your "yes"!
