For my life, to extend the Kingdom of God was embodied largely to Ph.D theological studies, mission work, and parish local ministry. I researched and worked extensive areas of curriculum designing for various ages from infant to elderly for church program. Often, the experience of my lectures and seminars also helped me greatly the studies of church growth in America between transformation of life and church revival.
In addition to academic experience, I and my husband were called for Africa mission, in Kenya Leading Bible studies, teaching, and church-planting were main program of mission trip.On May 20, 2012, I and my husband had the special calling and founded a church, GO & Disciple Church with 12 families in Cypress, CA. God is with us. The church grew to about 200 members meanwhile.
Beside ministry, since 2013 I began to teach @ Bethesda University largely consisted of international students from China and Korea. I saw the hope and focused to the endless possibilities that out of their immigrant setting and circumstance, the power and miracle of God will be even greater to defeat their loneliness and challenges. It is my prayer everyday that today will be the day in which God’s timing collide to ours that His will be done on the earth in His time and space.
