From the mountains of Puebla, Mexico, to the flatlands of Iowa and swamplands of Florida—Sam Yang has learned a thing or two about how to adjust to new places.
In 2000, Sam’s family moved to Mexico, focused on reaching the unreached people in the mountains and sharing the gospel with them. A strong faith and perseverance helped Sam there, and in his next stage of life.
After graduating from Dordt College, Sam began a PhD program for mechanical engineering at Florida State University. He hopes to teach science through a faith lens, but also to teach the principle of giving back. He says the Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation helped pay for more than simply his undergrad tuition.
In addition to giving financially, Sam hopes to give his time by returning to the mission field when he is able.
