Thomas and I are close friends. He is from an Asian country while I am from America. I consider us more than friends. We are also mutual mentors to one another, a brotherhood that began in 2010.
Back then, Thomas was gaining a heart for a certain unreached Buddhist people group. When I met him, he needed help learning how to serve this people group so I began to walk alongside him to mentor him in cross-cultural ministry.
Beyond just the cross-cultural ministry side of our relationship, I watched Thomas closely. I watched how he served this unreached people group. I witnessed how he sacrificed monetarily out of his poverty. I saw how he persevered through difficult circumstances. To say the least, I was learning a lot from Thomas and still do.
