Testimonies

  • 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. […]

  • A Love Story from God to Me

    By Erin Wong on September 7, 2013
    A LOVE STORY When people ask for my testimony, I akin it to sharing a love story. It’s a special story between God and I — I’m not embarrassed about it, nor does it need to be like any other testimony or fit a certain criteria. It’s simply how I fell in love with God and how that love changed […]

  • Finding Comfort in Sovereignty

    By Steven Choi on May 4, 2013
    Sometimes in the pursuit of success, it’s our failures, that develops true comfort in faith. If you take a cross-section of my life, this is what you would see: a medical student struggling with preparing for examinations, with plenty of family baggage. Sometimes life is like a giant sparring match, where I keep swinging and missing. I’m full of missteps, […]

  • Standing Still

    By Caroline Park on May 4, 2013
    I always believed it was a blessing and a curse that my soul had gigantic, albeit rather flighty (pun absolutely intended) wings. While I grew up with a single mother, we moved around quite a bit, and I became accustomed to packing less and less, placing value on only the things that really mattered to me, like my Spice Girls […]

  • Not Saved by Works

    By David Kim on October 6, 2012
    A BAD BEGINNING I was always a Christian. I went to church, got saved, went to retreats and got a healthy dose of guilt and crying when I thought about redemption, regretting the bad things I had done. This was back in middle school. Little did I know, more bad things would happen. High school was really the beginning. I […]
