Finished preaching and got massive back spasms when I got home. Jeremiah Pat also got a cold. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

(1983) My entire childhood is this family restaurant. The Red Lantern is how my family bought our house, it paid for our cars, and it’s why I’m going to school in America instead of China. My earliest memories are of hanging out in the back of the restaurant playing Nintendo and helping my dad clean up at the end of the night. I saw the power of starting your own business; it represented freedom and a way to provide for your family. No one handed my parents a great job that allowed them to buy a house and send their kid to school. It was because my parents pursued their dream that they were able to care for me. My mom always gave me the business section of the newspaper and told me to read about stocks. She said that our restaurant was just a small family business but that one day I could hopefully have my own large business. I think my love for investing comes from these experiences. When I think back to what life was like for my parents, I feel both proud and sad. I am amazed that we had our restaurant for so many years because I know how many restaurants fail. To run a restaurant for 25 years is a fantastic feat but even more so because my parents were new immigrants who didn’t even know English. They had no one to teach them how to do things, and they learned as they went along. I’m also sad because of the life they could have had. My parents got divorced when I was 7. I’m sure the long hours of maintaining a small family business didn’t help their marriage. As I look back, I realize how much my early childhood shaped me. It was then that I began to develop my love for business and entrepreneurship. But it was also then, as I watched our family’s restaurant succeed while I watched our family fall apart, that I began a long journey of learning how to appreciate and love my family even more.

Parenting is hard. Baby Jeremiah is amazing but our work schedules have been monsters. I just started my prep to compete at the World Championships in Athens and Carmen is slogging away at getting the hours she needs to be a licensed therapist. These next few weeks are also going to involve a lot of travel for weddings and work so we’re are brainstorming a ways to make sure Jeremiah doesn’t go crazy sitting in a vehicle. Please pray for us as we continue to adjust. I’ve enjoyed working from home with Jeremiah but it’s also been an extra challenge taking care of all the household duties while Carmen pulls 70 hour work weeks. Having daycare at the gym has been a HUUUGGGEEE answered prayer and we are hoping for more breakthroughs like it. Our next challenge will be finding a house to rent. Please pray for a 3BR 🏡 close to the gym 😁 Would you like to join our monthly update email list? Please msg me!

It’s tough and exhausting being an Asian American minister. When we decided to make our careers about serving God and the Church, we all got pushback from our families. It felt like there was some kind of new criticism everyday. When we finally started ministry, we realized that everyone in charge would either be from our parent’s generation or be of a completely different cultural background than us. That means that we are always going to feel like we are not good enough or be discriminated against. But through it all, we are seeing the greatest church growth in history. Despite all the hardship, we can see our opportunity to be the bridge between East and West. Pray for us. The road ahead doesn’t get easier but we know that God has a plan for us and we want to be faithful.
