In our 35+ years of marriage, we have raised three sons, lived and worked in three countries, traveled to over 100 cities, and spent over half of our lives outside of North America. We became Christians at MIT and met in our senior year. We have served in Chinese American churches in Boston and Los Angeles in various leadership capacities including worship, youth, college, young adults, training and prayer ministry. Our mission trips have taken us to Mexico, Middle East, China and India. We published three books and taught parenting, stewardship, & all kinds of other classes together. We were interviewed on radio and TV programs and spoke at numerous conferences to thousands of people. As a family, we served together at orphanages, taught English to Tibetan minorities and led worship as a family band.


We are explorers at heart, and love an adventure, from camping by the Great Wall, to rafting down the rapids in Bali, or learning Vietnamese cooking in Hoi An. We also love to try new cuisines from Korean street food to French haute cuisine.


Now that we have just empty nested, we are living a minimalist lifestyle, hitting the road in our quest to impact lives.
