I was raised a Buddhist. My parents taught me morals, but not anything about faith. I felt kind of empty, like there was something missing.
In high school, I met a friend. We played tennis together. We never talked about anything spiritual. We talked philosophy and stuff like that, but I never really learned who Jesus was and what He did.
One day he asked me if I wanted to go to a church. I was interested. I was really excited that these people would welcome me. I needed friends.
For 2 years, I went to that church. I was very involved. I actually joined the choir.
[When I started college], I met Jonathan Lee [a staff member with Cru]. I shared my story of how I first came to be around Christian people. He went through a booklet with me. It was interesting. I liked the fact that Jesus died for me and my sins. I felt like this was a starting place.
I joined Epic, which is an Asian ministry for Cru. There were a lot of people learning, as well, like me. I joined a small group to learn more about Christ. I started asking questions. I was really curious, just wanting to know more and more. I started reading the Bible.
Through all that time I thought, This is it. There was a moment when I really said to myself, I cannot do it myself, and I accept Christ. Really deep down inside I felt that Christ fills up the void of my emptiness.
I felt like I was reborn again. Back in high school, it was the religion. Now I came to know the Man instead of the religion.

If you are reading this and for some reason you hate God, and you feel alone, know that He is constantly loving you. He will turn the situation around. Therefore, choose God as He chooses you.
It could be said that I grew up in the church, however, my heart was not entirely in it.
