Favorite Calvin memory
I first traveled to China in 2000 with the Calvin semester abroad program in Beijing. The professor and fellow students on that trip became life-long friends and the experience of studying in China through the Calvin program had a profound impact on my life. I am grateful that in God's providence the semester program introduced me to China and created future opportunities to be a witness in China.
