Alex Chen currently resides in the Washington D.C. area with his wife and two beautiful daughters. He works for Campus Outreach which is a campus ministry organization and that is how we met in college.
Alex went to the University of Connecticut and was invited to Campus Outreach’s annual New Year’s conference in 2010 by his brother. We met at this conference and became friends, but our friendship really grew during the summer of 2011 when both of us attended a summer outreach program organized by Campus Outreach called summer beach project.
Throughout our entire friendship even though we were several states apart from one another we have always stayed connected. From our road trip to attend Urbana in St. Louis back in 2012 to exploring Japan in 2017, we have shared so many wonderful experiences together.
Alex is one of my friends who has always challenged me to grow as a man and a follower of Christ in so many different ways.

Candace is from Georgia and went to UGA. She is very very I mean VERY passionate about her Georgia Bulldogs! She is fluent in Spanish and loves spending time with her friends.
Candace is a flight attendant based in Charlotte and Dee met her in flight attendant training in 2018. They immediately connected over Georgia and Jesus. Even though they have been based in 2 different cities, that has not stopped them from growing close to one another in friendship.
Candace played a crucial role in our love story because she was the one that told me that we were going to be in San Pedro Sula, Honduras at the same time on November 25, 2021. So it was Candace who introduced us to one another!
Mary Catherine Siegmann
Mary Catherine is a occupational therapist in Georgia and is married to her husband Luke. To me and Dee she goes by M.C.!
M.C. and Dee met in college at Georgia State University. They met at the honors college one day during lunch time in the kitchen area. Dee was having lunch with a friend when M.C. out of no where laughed at a joke Dee’s friend made. Since that day M.C. and Dee became inseparable having lunch every Tuesday and Thursday during their college years to traveling the world together!
The first time I heard about M.C. was during the month of April when me and Dee were asking each other thoughtful questions a day to one another. The question I asked Dee was: “Who brings out the best in you?” Her answer was M.C and ever since I met her in person I completely understand why she is that person for Dee!
