Testimonies

  • Oh Lead Me

    By Jared Nojima on April 2, 2015
    AS I FACED the last year of my college career, I had to come to terms with the reality of my future. What was I going to do with my life? How was I supposed to apply everything I had learned and contribute to the improvement of the world? As I was unpacking these questions, I had come to recognize two […]

  • Assurance in Uncertainty

    By Pat Nimmanant on April 2, 2015
    WHEN I WAS ASKED to consider joining the staff of Epic Movement, an Asian American ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ International (Cru), I thought about how campus ministry had first impacted me as a young college student. When I joined Cru as a freshman in college, I was at a stage of life filled with fear and insecurity. The people […]

  • The Silence of Sexual Sin

    By Justin Lee on January 17, 2015
    It only takes one person to break the silence, but it takes a multitude of people to have a conversation. I did not understand the sheer power of confession and testimony.  Yet it was in the context of conversation that God brought me immense healing and transformation. It was within community that He changed my life forever. I struggle with sexual […]

  • Relentless Faith

    By Matthew Luh on November 10, 2014
    Life is full of surprises. Some surprises are pleasant surprises, others not so much. As a Christian, unpleasant surprises often turn into blessings that strengthen me. Through trials, I am able to grow and mature in my faith. THE BEGINNING During the summer of 2008, after my second year of college at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), I started […]

  • Thriving in the Unseen

    By Carrie Shieh on September 10, 2014
    Having just finished her freshmen year at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Miso was like any other college student, still recovering from the demands of finals week. She wanted me to know from the beginning that she is like any other Asian American woman growing in her faith, trying to figure out how she can best serve God […]

  • Era of Hopeful Uncertainties: Meditations of a Post-Undergraduate

    By Dorothy Lau on July 22, 2014
    It is a strange feeling to be out of school. No longer am I bounded by schedules and exams. “What’s next?” applies more pertinently to next year (or several years), not next week. Endings can be bittersweet. They evoke excitement for novel beginnings, adventures, friendships. Or, the transition from university to “the real world” entails a stretch of freedom and […]

  • Where Is My Home?

    By Hwalih Han on May 21, 2014
    America. Taiwan. Korea.  Having immigrated to different countries at various stages in their lives, Hwalih and her sister find that home was never in any of these countries. Do you ever wonder what it would feel like to become instantly blind, deaf, mute, paralyzed, and brain-dead — all at the same time? Or how about this: Starving after a 12-hour flight […]

  • From Residency to Seminary

    By Jack Tsai on November 2, 2013
    If you told me in high school that in 10 years I would be playing doctor, preacher, and author, I would tell you that you were out of your mind. I was your typical Asian kid — quiet, obedient, and I played the violin. If there were some sort of Asian poster Gerber baby and I were better looking, it would be me.

  • A Blessing in Disguise

    By Nathan Wu on November 2, 2013
    Every morning is the same. I wake up, look out the window, and there’s a cloud or two. Not surprising, it’s Indiana. I get dressed for a rainy day and head out the door, onto a bus that takes me from my apartment to class. On the bus I notice more rain clouds forming, but it’s not in the sky. […]
