              What many would consider their worst nightmare has become a reality for Christopher Yuan. While attending dental school, he began living promiscuously as a homosexual and experimenting with illicit drugs. Within a few years, he was expelled from dental school, imprisoned for drug dealing and discovered that he was HIV positive.

              But God has turned his nightmare into an exciting and inspiring story of redemption, grace and transformation. Christopher has an understanding heart for and a desire to minister to those working through issues of sexuality and to those living with HIV/AIDS. He speaks locally and internationally to youth, on college campuses, in churches and in prisons.

              Christopher graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 2005 and Wheaton College Graduate School in 2007 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis and is currently pursuing a doctorate of ministry at Bethel Seminary. He now teaches at Moody while continuing his speaking ministry which has reached four continents around the world. Christopher has spoken at both Saddleback Church and Willow Creek Community Church in America and at many conferences including InterVarsity's Urbana and the Moody Pastors' Conference and Men's Conference. He is also featured in the award-winning documentary, "HOPE Positive: Surviving the Sentence of AIDS" and has co-authored with his mother, Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God, A Broken Mother's Search for Hope (forthcoming May 3, 2011 by WaterBrook Multnomah a division of Random House).

I Am Against Homophobia

Thursday,  May 17,  2007 was the International Day Against Homophobia.   Alan Chambers wrote in his blog regarding this day and how we as the church should respond to people who are "gay" identified.   Please read below what he has written.

"One of the primary focuses of Exodus International and one of my missions in life is to help the Church come to see those who are gay -identified or who struggle with homosexuality as people whom Christ died for and loves equally.   The Church should be more welcoming to these folks than the local gay bar.   Gay and lesbian identified people should be able to find more help within the Church than they can outside of it.   It has long been my goal to so impact the Church with the message of truth and grace that Exodus would be able to go out of business."

"So,  when it comes to the evils of homophobia,  bullying,  name calling,  hatred and violence where those affected by homosexuality are concerned,  I stand with all decent human beings who are fighting and praying for an end to the ignorance and ungodliness that cause them."

"Join me,  won't you?"

I'm willing to join Alan,  are you?   Let's shower all "gay" identified men and women with the love of Christ so that they would all become "new creations" (as everyone does who comes to Christ,  "gay" identified or not).

I will totally join in. It was great to see the film at Exodus, and talk with your parents and a few others in regards to expressing love and hope.
Be blessed man.
