“YOU CHRISTIANS ARE DIFFERENT. YOU HAVE LOVE…THAT’S WHY I’M WILLING TO BELIEVE IN YOUR JESUS.”

Those were the words of Shiao, a woman who came to the Lord through BRIDGES’ Family Outreach platform.  She came to The Bridge through the strong recommendations of a friend and attended the Parenting Small Group.  Over time, it became apparent to the Small Group Leader that Shiao’s attendance was sporadic, due to an ailing father inflicted with cancer.  Sharing his own battle with cancer, the leader gave her hope and engaged Tiger and Helen to visit Shiao’s father.   Shiao reflects throughout this experience:  “I never believed in anything before.  Whenever I’d hear of the negative press the Buddhists get, I’m turned off by religion altogether.  But you Christians are different, you have love.  That’s why I’m willing to believe in your Jesus.”

With follow-up visits by our new Co-workers Siukay and Katy , the Family Outreach Team loved upon the family…and that’s how they know Jesus.
