    My name is Youth in Asia, I did ministry in China for 7 years, and now back home in Canada. Just waiting for Jesus to return soon. I miss him.

    Sometimes I have questions, and this board seems to have some knowledgeable people.

    I took this name from a ministry to young people, used it for a long time.

    I did ministry in China, for most people around me, English was not their mother language, so puns were never a priority. But my name does seem offensive to the western church. I guess just like the ancient word "gay" has lost it's meaning, so did Youth in Asia :(

    The first time I encountered that word I thought they'd said "youth in Asia."

    Welcome to the Baptist Board... Youth In Asia... But I have a question, since you're not in Asia anymore, shouldn't your profile read Youth In Canada?... Brother Glen;)

    Oh now I see you are using your name to honor your fiancee, who is actually the Youth In Asia... Well as my wife would say, that is really sweet and if any ladies happen to see this, ladies he's a keeper... You're kind of a romantic rascal aren't you?... Brother Glen:)

    Ok, lets lighten up, he's:Inlove

    Welcome to our corner of the world. Honest questions will always receive honest answers.
    And, most often, some humor, sarcasm, response questions, misunderstanding of motives, little patience, sermons on why you are wrong, etc.

    In other words, about the same from the Body of Christ anywhere! Some can't handle it, but most enjoy the ride.

    BTW, where in China were you? I've traveled a little in that part of the world as my wife (an alternative heath doctor) did some studies there and got an award at a conference in Hong Kong.
