Actually Making A Difference

Last week I received an invitation to attend a open house from a high school friend.  This open house was about the work that she and her husband are doing in China.  So last night my wife, son, and I attend this open house.  They have been in China for 8 years.  The first two years was spent just learning the language and the culture.  They knew that they were called to go there to have an impact for Christ.  Trust me it is much better to hear them explain it.  He is using his studio and music knowledge to convert music and videos into the Chinese language and culture.  She was heavily impacted by the cultural dis-valuing of Chinese women and started an organization to help them get out of a dead end life.

I am always impressed by people who have such a clear understanding of what they are called to do. When they talk about what they do, their passion and commitment immediately show through.  This family is making a real difference in peoples lives. It was a great privilege to reconnect and have our families meet.
