I grew up in Lancaster County, PA (USA) amidst small towns and the countryside. Then I lived 30+ years in East Asia with various roles: church worker; student of Chinese language and culture; ESL teacher of children, university students and adults; co-worker in businesses; language coach; and others. In the Summer of ’14, I returned to my roots in PA and am now juggling several jobs and responsibilities as I figure out how to live here. I also have a number of hobbies but no time to pursue them all. And I am also curious and inquisitive and love learning new things and exploring new cultures. I also love asking “why?” But my greatest passion is to seek and know what it really means to be a follower of Jesus in today’s world.
