On October 31, 2014, I presented a paper, On Fire for China, the story of Erik Pilquist, Pioneer Adventist Missionary to China, at the joint Adventism in China and the Association of SDA Historians conference, Reflection on Adventism in China and Asia, held at Hong Kong Adventist College. http://www.sdahistorians.org/conference-program1.html
On the same date, I represented Andrews University at a ceremony celebrating the creation of the Center for Chinese Adventist Heritage located in the library at Hong Kong Adventist College. Jean Hong and Kat Ma are the curators for the Center. A news story appeared on the Adventist Today website, http://www.adventistreview.org/church-news/adventists-get-rare-glimpse-of-church%E2%80%99s-work-in-china
After the conference, I participated in a China tour from November 3-14, 2014 led by Bruce Lo, which visited China treasures such as the Great Wall and present and former Adventist sites in Xi’an, Shanghai, and Xiamen (Amoy), China.
