As an Asian American Christian who came to faith as an international student in the USA, I am just now beginning to explore my identity as as Asian American. Being in an interracial marriage, I also toggle between two worlds and two cultures. In the end, I find my voice in my identity as a follower of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your work in the study of Asian American Christianity.
