Publisher's Description

Chasing God is Roger Huang's gritty, heartfelt story of obedience to God's call to follow Him into the heart of the city. That mission can inspire you!

 
Leaving behind his abusive home in Taiwan, Roger  discovered both the American Dream and his French bride, Maite. A dramatic event took place before his very eyes and prompted Roger to rethink his future and his calling. As a couple, Roger and Maite chose not to ignore the plight of the poor and homeless in San Francisco's most impoverished district, the Tenderloin. Since founding City Impact, Roger has led many in discovering the power of prayer, fasting, and serving hands-on in a community starved for hope. Chasing God is a testimony to God's miraculous provision and will challenge you to consider how to serve and care for your own city and community.

    Amazing things can happen through one person and the power of prayer!

    This is the story of Roger Huang and the ministry that he started in the Tenderloin district in San Francisco. Huang suffered significant abuse at the hands of his father in Taipei as a child. After coming to the States and witnessing a young boy beaten by bullies in the Tenderloin district, Huang was so distraught that he hadn't come to the boy' aid and set out to find him. In the process, his heart was burdened to help others in the area who were drug addicts, prostitutes, alcoholics or misdirected kids. He starts by passing out sandwiches to people in the area and begins to build relationships with them. He eventually starts teaching the kids lessons about Jesus and this soon evolves to a regular program called Super Saturday. As Huang and his family continue to build relationships with the people in this area, they even begin a church and an elementary school in the area.

    Chasing God tells the story of the amazing things that can happen when one person steps out in faith and is obedient to the plans that God is asking him to follow. Miracle after miracle happens as they face significant obstacles (sex clubs next to the elementary school they've started, a bigger building needed for their growing school, finances needed for repairs to keep the school going, etc.). Each problem is met with a divine intervention from God with Huang receiving all that he needs...often at the very last minute. A perfect summary of his life, Huang says"I like to say I am God's bellhop. I just open the doors that He asks me to, and He does all the work. It is a beautiful and crazy life that God has given us in the Tenderloin. And He just keeps surprising us with how He works everything out." The ministry has grown in so many different directions to meet the needs of people in this area. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas, over 20,000 meals and 10,000 grocery bags are distributed to the apartment buildings in the Tenderloin.

    While I always enjoy hearing about the start and growth of a ministry (and the passion of the people involved), the book's story and cadence became a little predictable. A need was identified, a prayer was answered and then there was another need identified along the way, etc. . I hope to never become bored with answered prayer (Ha!), but the overall reading didn't maintain my interest in the end like it did in the beginning of the story. It became expected that each need would be met. It might have been interesting to learn more about the different people in the Tenderloin and how their personal situations had changed dramatically as a result of this ministry.

    I received a complimentary e-book of Chasing God from David C Cook in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
