Born in Malaysia of Chinese parents, I found myself trying to fit in wherever I have been, but struggling to do so. At home, I had become a follower of Christ at an early age, and felt as if I had betrayed my Chinese heritage. Growing up, I felt awkward at having embraced a Western faith while claiming to be part of the local culture. Later, as I lived in Western countries, I found myself not really being accepted by Westerners, even though I ostensibly shared a little of their culture. Even when I am supposed to be most at home, among spiritual brothers and sisters, I found myself still, as it were, standing in the outer.
