Dear RM friends,
I’m writing to you from Asia. Because of some critical family issues, I had to step down from the leadership role in RM and move back here. I miss my colleagues and you all indeed. I’m very confident that the next leadership will bring RM to even higher grounds in God’s hand. Even though I’m away, I’m still part of the rainbow family.
Talking about the Rainbow family, one of our visually impaired college students called me and said that she felt like she feels so connected to us. She always asks, “When is Uncle Roland coming again?” Other students, teachers and friends keep telling me how much they have been encouraged by Rain, Kery, Seb, Peggy’s recent visits because they know how much they truly care. They bring beautiful music and tidings from afar. They go all the way to visit them in person. Even though there was an urgent sponsorship application that came in late, they were so assuring and willing to try their best to do something for that student to make sure that he does not drop out of school due to financial hardship.
There is just so much love, hope and potential in the effort ahead under the leadership of the board and Rain. So please keep remembering, keep supporting and keep discerning about joining these service trips of love. I’m sure Rain and Kery can tell you a lot more about their plans and schedules.
So far, I’ve been blessed to spend more time with my family. Among other things, my eldest brother (who is practically my father figure), has had some medical challenges recently. We’ve had long and meaningful talks over ham macaroni soup noodles and Hong Kong milk tea. Being the youngest of seven, I’m somehow the listening ear and comforter for him and other siblings.
Nowadays, I spend some time in Hong Kong and some time in China. The under-privileged, the marginalized and the disabled that God has led me to befriend are still very much in my heart. Now that I’m closer to the field, I have made myself available to God and to RM to be next to these people and minister to them even more.
In the meantime, as part of the Rainbow family, please watch out for RM’s postings about the exciting things God is doing among those who are disadvantaged. I’m planning to come back for the Rainbow Missions dinners and hope to see you there too.
