This is My Life

In early November, I mentioned that a reporter from the Episcopal News Service came to Hong Kong to do stories on the Young Adult Service Corps Missionaries working in the city. Two weeks ago, one of those stories was published. In the story below, you will see what I do from day to day here with Mission to Seafarers in Hong Kong.


Special thanks to Matthew Davies for putting this piece together. Your gift for storytelling is certainly an asset for the church. I hope this video inspires someone thinking about YASC. Hands down, it has been the best decision of my life.

Another glimpse into the outreach of the Mission here happened just this morning. The Mariners' Club, in conjunction with the Hong Kong shipping community, sent a shipping container stocked full of much-needed supplies to the Philippines for those still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan.

What was in the container? Good Question:
  • 7 Boxes of Toys
  • 1 Box of Toiletries
  • 2 Bags of Shoes
  • 1440 Bags of Sugar
  • 400 Bags of Rice
  • 3,690 Packs of Noodles
  • 1,560 Bottles of Water
  • 1,392 Cases of Dried Food
  • Lots of Love
Got Rice?
