Christina Winrich was born in Wisconsin, came to faith as a musician working in France and then rashly offered the Lord a whole year of her life to serve Him in missions! After taking 3 short-term mission trips (one to South America and two to China), she landed up on a a year’s cross-cultural programme run by our Antioch School of Missions in China. Her one year ultimately became five in China, largely spent using her skills as a special needs educator, then teaching oral English in a university. After that, she went for specific Bible training in Canada and eventually moved on to serve in Japan with Overseas Missionary Fellowship. In this interview Christina shares openly about the challenges and joys of serving God in another culture (or two!). She shares movingly of how the Lord redirected her towards “less than 1% Christian” Japan and about the hard work of mastering a second Asian language with characters (though it does have a kind of alphabet as well!)

Dear Christina, Writing down today‘s date I thought it might be your birthday today and googled your name. Really interesting your journey, I‘m very impressed by you mastering Chinese and Japanese...Today is March 16, maybe it isn‘t your birthday after all. Anyway, wishing you all the best!
excellent interview. Especially that we know Christina very well from China. Even had her for a time come and spend some time with us here in South Africa. Bless you for the good work. Richard and Bernice
