Originally in my August 3, 2005 Journal [before moving to China 2 weeks later]:
While I was driving home yesterday, I was thinking about [my former leader’s] ministry & the potential. I believe there are hundreds of recent college grads who would love to go teach in China if they understood the implications. They don’t have to raise support, the curriculum is not intense, & they can play a role in spreading Christianity during this critical time in China’s history where Communism is waning & China is opening up to the rest of the world while also becoming a world power. And I think of how many universities there are in China who would love to have an American teaching English. The demand is huge. The supply is available; they just don’t understand the need yet. I must help get the word out.
