Background Information

Any Christian who delights in biography and wants to deepen one’s faith will find this book to best help increase their understanding of the international community for the sake of the gospel. Where Strangers Cross is a narrative with plot and characterization. Beside obvious differences stemming from diverse times, careers and geography between Kevin Avery and John Long, it intertwines two spiritual journeys instead of focusing on one life story. In fact, this aspect of the book makes it unique among other Christian biographies. The reason for this alternating point of view is to enhance the Lord as the main character, who brings the two men together to disciple the nations.It is designed to challenge and encourage American Christians by seeing the Great Commission lived out from different perspectives.

Where Strangers Cross
They come from two different worlds. John (Jiang) Long grew up in rural China where the name Jesus never surfaced. Kevin Avery grew up 8,000 miles away with Christian parents in the suburbs of the United States. Humanly speaking, their paths should never cross, yet this situation changes when they follow a transforming Jesus. Not only does God divinely bring them together to start an international student ministry, but also, he reverses their residences. He plants Long as a pastor in Tulsa and sends Avery as a missionary to China, even to the mountain villages of Long's youth. While in exchanged countries, they become strangers of this world, ready to disciple the nations in reverent brokenness.

International Village Ministry
Our ministry focus is endeavoring to be: a care-giver to all international, an equipper to business professionals, executives, an encourager to missionaries (both returned to USA and outgoing to China and beyond), as well as a linkage to mission-minded pastors and churches.
