When I was 12 years old, I put my faith in Jesus Christ and He saved me and changed my life! A few years later I felt His call upon my life to full-time service to Him, going overseas preaching the good news of His death on the cross for sinners.
It was while I was in pursuit of this call that the Lord opened a door for me to move to China. After finishing college, I moved to Fujian, China as an English teacher. Though I didn’t know how someone like me could preach in China, I was trusting that if I went and learned the language, the Lord would open a way for me to do so.
I moved to China in December of 2010 and spent the next five years teaching English, learning to speak Chinese, absorbing the culture, and involving myself in a local national church.
It was during those five years that I met Anny Grace, the love of my life. I invited her to church where she heard the gospel and eventually too was saved! Our relationship grew and we got married in China in April of 2015.
We loved being involved in the local church there in China and were constantly seeking more opportunities to serve and preach the gospel. My work as an English teacher, however, was no small hindrance to our goals. It consumed much of my time and limited opportunities to preach, teach, and share the good news of our Savior.
As my wife and I prayed for a way to do full-time ministry in China, I was reminded of a team of missionaries that I had previously discovered online. Upon reaching out to the team, one of the missionaries called me and explained how he received training and raised funds to get to the field and serve as a full-time church-planting missionary in China.
Our prayers were answered! There was a way for me to do full-time ministry in China after all! Within six months, the Lord allowed us to make arrangements to come back to the States and train. We currently are on deputation to head back to China for the cause of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
