Welcome! My name is Vivian Mabuni and I am an Asian American Christian woman, wife, mom, and cancer survivor. My different worlds influence who I am, how I lead, and the way I connect with God and others.

I'm so glad you are here. Though I much prefer hanging out over coffee "in human" (what my daughter used to say in preschool), I'm grateful technology makes possible a way for people to connect over time zones and long distances. Please feel free to look around and connect via social media. 

"For in Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen." Romans 11:36
