              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).

Forthcoming book on May 3, 2011!!

So excited to announce that my mom and I just finished writing our memoir titled Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God, A Broken Mother's Search for Hope. It will be released on May 3, 2011 by WaterBrook Multnomah (division of Random House). It's a memoir from two perspectives: a prodigal and a prodigal mom which makes use of an evolving parallel narrative with alternating chapters. We hope that it gets into the hands of those who have given up or are about to give up hope. And I pray that prodigals discover that they can always come home—no matter how far the country—our Heavenly Father is waiting!

Very excited for this book to come out and to hear more about your story!

Just watched the video online and it is such a blessing to hear your testimony and see God using your unceasing anguish for individuals who are struggling with their sexuality and their families. Thank you for your efforts to speak Gospel truth into this issue, and many blessings ahead.
