It took over a year to get it published, but whoever said perseverance pays off wasn't lying. This month's issue of Breakaway magazine--a Focus on the Family magazine for teen guys--features an article I wrote about one of my many trips to China.
This is my first article published in a national magazine, and I just received the go-ahead to write another one for their November issue. To read the full text, you'll have to check out the magazine, but the link above takes you to a preview of the issue. "Beyond Borders" is the title of the article, and the description is situated just above Relient K. It's pretty amazing to think that my article will be sitting in on coffee tables and nightstands across the country, reaching some 100,000 subscribers. I hope it inspires them to live a life worthy of the Gospel. May I be faithful with the small success God has given me, so he can trust me with more in the future.
