"I was born in a christian
family, and accepted Christ into my life at the age of fourteen.
It was then that church became something I wanted to do rather than something
my parents made me do. I'm a Junior in college now and with a little
help am making it through."

"I grew up in a Christian
home. My father is a Cambodian pastor and was a missionary in the
refugee camps in Thailand, so I am PK and MK. I accepted Jesus as
my Savior when I was seven years old. My mother is Filipino.
I did not feel like I fit in growing up because I did not understand my
identity in Christ. After a prodigal period in college, I started
to listen to God calling me back home to Himself. After graduating I enrolled
at Multnomah Biblical Seminary for the one year graduate certificate program.
I heard about NW Karate for Christ and was reintroduced to a lifelong love
of martial arts (I had studied Hath Goju-Ryu as a boy).
Now I am studying in
the M.Div program at MBS; the karate club is my internship at Central Bible
Church. My spiritual gift is Mercy and I like to teach and lead by
example. I like to encourage people to worship and trust in God.
I am learning to be faithful in prayer, especially for my family and students."

Tae Kwon Do - I studied for a year,
3 hours each day, but only tested out to green belt. I also studied
briefly in Kenpo Karate. I have experience in boxing also.
But most of what I do is to show God's power over the sin in our lives.
