Vivian and I have long served the church. The Apostle Paul often referred to the church as “the body of Christ.” In fact, he even makes the astounding statement that the church represents “the fullness of Him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:23)
We know that Paul is not talking about the institutional church, but the church of Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, Vivian and I have lived our lives with the goal to strengthen the local church. In many ways, we have seen this as the nearest thing that we could do to also serve Jesus Christ Himself.
