Brian Wo – China, 2008
“I’m persuaded that if more people saw what I see on a regular basis, they would want change.”
- Bryan Steveson, American Lawyer, Author of Just Mercy
Brian Wo, an American Friends of ICC board alumni, stated recently that when we enter into the suffering of others and their stories of oppression, neglect, marginalization and suffering, our hearts are broken and we can no longer turn our eyes away and do nothing. His trip to China birthed in him a ministry of compassion which now includes serving with the Bay Area Anti-trafficking Coalition.
Just like our black brothers and sisters and women who are trafficked, children and families in China impacted by disability continue to need us to come alongside them. They need our voices to advocate for them. They need our hands to extend mercy and love and hope. And they need to know that we share with them a common humanity – that in our diversity we are created in the image of a loving God to love and be loved.
Twenty seven years ago, David Gotts walked into welfare centers in China and saw a need for change in China. In 1988 Bryan Stevenson stepped foot on death row, met an innocent black man headed toward execution, and knew change had to come. Brian Wo spent 2 weeks in China and understood the need for compassion ministry.
