When I was 7 years old, I first asked Christ in my life. I was keenly aware of my sinful state and knew that I needed a savior. I was later baptized in the same church (Tigard First Baptist) as I wanted to publically profess my love for my Creator and Redeemer. I first attended Village as a youth. After attending college for two years, I returned to Village. As an elder, I hope that my gifts of encouragement and teaching can be useful to not only care for the staff and the Mission of Village, but also all Villagers. It is a blessing to worship in a multicultural setting and I want to use my gifts to engage Villagers to embrace multi-ethnic ministry. Please pray for my family, as both of our kids are engaged to be married in 2017. We are so blessed to know and love our kids’ fiancé’s and we are so grateful that they are all seeking to serve the Lord in their church communities. Additionally, please pray for Kim and I as we seek to share the light and hope of Jesus at our places of work.
