"I physically can’t remember why on earth I chose Baylor, because Baylor is not one of the places in China that’d people would be like ‘Oh, Baylor, that’s my dream school!’ Looking back on it, I can say it was God’s plan. There’s no other way to explain it, because literally there was no motive for me to just go to Baylor, because all of my friends were picking other schools. I’d say it’s God.

"I met my best friend, Sarah Webber, in the first week of college. We were in the same dorm, in Brooks College... She’s so kind and gentle and caring that we became really quick friends. She told that me she believed in God really early on, and I was like, 'Interesting...', because I knew she got like a 4.0 all of her life, and she was in pre-med with a Spanish and a business minor. Back in China, only the old people believe in Jesus, at least as far as I know... ‘Only weak people need Jesus.’ So, I was like, ‘Oh, okay, you’re perfectly fine and you’re smart. You know science better than I do, and you believe in this "supernatural thing," so it must be real to you, at least.’ That really brought my interest into this whole thing. Other than that, she was really, really caring. She wasn’t always purposefully sharing the Gospel with me. She shared the Gospel with me through her life, basically.

"She brought me to Christ. She’d eat with me, she’d hang out with me. I remember the first Thanksgiving dinner I went to was through her. She brought me to her lifegroup and there was like a party there. I was like, ‘Oh this is so cute! This is the first time I had turkey!’ She loved me so well. I didn’t realize that was her investing in me, but she loved me so, so well, and eventually she brought me to Christ. She was the first real friend I’d ever had, and after that I joined the Chinese church community and people there, and instantly found a home away from home."
