              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).

Whoever believes in Him...

I just returned from Atlanta where I spoke at a Christian school, a Christian HIV/AIDS support group and Sunday school at First Baptist of Atlanta. There was a young man at this Sunday school who heard me speak when I was in Atlanta last year. We also went to see the Passion play the day before with his wife. He had told us even though his wife was a Christian, he was not.

But after the Passion play, hearing my testimony, and the teaching and prayers of his Sunday school teachers, this week Zijun has placed his faith in Jesus Christ! He plans to get baptized with his wife this weekend, Palm Sunday! Praise the Lord! God is good and does things in His perfect timing. Let us rejoice and be glad in Him!

Stan gave a gift card from Family Christian Stores the other week. I bought a new Bibles and had my name imprinted on the front cover. This is the most precious gift I ever received.
