              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).

Nick Vujicic - no arms or legs but created perfect in the eyes of God

Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. I had watched some short videos of his testimony on YouTube but none of them did God justice because they were too short. This is a longer video of his testimony. It is 13 minutes but worth the time - you will be blessed. My favorite quote is toward the end when Nick exhorts us,

"Circumstances do not have to change for us to become victorious."

Amen to that, Nick. You are a warrior and a man of God, created perfectly in His image. Too often I get replies after my testimony, "Do you know or believe that God can heal you?" I usually give a short but kind answer. Of all people, I know and desire to be completely healed. But if there was no suffering or sickness or death in this world then we would not long for heaven. I, along with all of creation, groan and wait eagerly for the redemption of my body (Rom 8:23). But until then, my time, my life, my all will seek to glorify the One who has give me life.

DVD to Help Battle AIDS in Africa .

In 1993, I produced a documentary a film entitled, TRACY'S CHOICES. This is the story of the first person, in the state of Illinois, to be sent to prison, for the knowing attempt to transmit HIV. It's more a film about the choices young people make, and AIDS was the backdrop.

Soon after the release of TRACY'S CHOICES, I learned two realities. The secular world wasn't very interested in the Christian message, and churches refused to admit that activities, leading to HIV infection, could possibly be present in the church. So the program languished. Then a third reality set in. I thought to myself, and began saying to others, "TRACY'S CHOICES is a film that was simply produced too soon. In time, conditions will change, and a market will develop." Well, that's what seems to be happening.

A couple of weeks ago, I shipped 500 DVD copies of TRACY’S CHOICES, to an international ministry, for their use in AIDS education in Africa. While I’m very pleased by this development, TRACY’S CHOICES was produced, primarily, for showing to American young people, because as we say in the film, “It’s time we told our kids that some of the choices they make can kill them.”

Since the sale to Operation Mobilization, and my promotion of that event, I have been asked for preview copies by Urban Ministries, and The National Baptist Convention. Then yesterday, a large ministry in South Africa asked to become a distributor. To say the least, things are picking up speed.

So, I simply wanted to let you know about this film, in the event there are others you can inform.
