Starlight Mandarin Ministry associate

I am the Mandarin Ministry Director of Starlight. I was born in a traditional big family in northern China. In university, I studied financial market management and became a manager after graduation. I have always been seeking truth and the meaning of my life. In 2004, my family immigrated to Canada, and we went to a church on Sunday. The Holy Spirit greatly touched me, and I immediately accepted Jesus. The Lord led me to a completely different way, to become a mother of three children and a homemaker for 12 years. In 2016, I studied theology at Ambrose University because I wanted to serve the Lord better for the rest of my life. My greatest passion is to share the good news of Jesus anywhere and at any time. I enjoy hiking with family and friends.

"Then your light will break forth like the dawn,

    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,"

Isaiah 58:8-9
