This past week was amazing. I attended the Temecula Valley Rotary and was introduced to Marc Ang, founder of Asian Industry B2B (http://aib2b.org), a group of concerned community leaders who are intent on illuminating the needs of the Asian business leaders in the Orange, LA, and Riverside areas.
As soon as I heard Marc speak, I new we had kindred spirits and when he shared his vision, I could feel our missions connect. Immediately, I could see we were like minded as he talked of the stigma of mental health in the Asian community and asked how we could get services to them. Marc invited me to speak at their upcoming September Mixer which is focused on Mental Health. What a blessing and amazing opportunity to share the Encouragers mission and to discuss ways to better serve the Asian community.

I Look forward to presenting at this event, and invite you to learn more and get involved. Jesus experienced a time when the needs were greater than the services he could provide. He made this observation and offered a solution:
The Workers Are Few
35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
Matthew 9:35-38 New International Version (NIV)
In the centuries following the death and resurrection of Christ not much has changed when it comes to the needs of the many being served by the few. Won't you join us as we reach out to support those who seek to serve the hurting?
