Dr. Leon and Angela Yuan have experienced much heartache from a broken marriage and their prodigal sons. But, God has given them the grace to rely upon His power to change the unchangeable and focus upon their own daily renewal and transformation. Leon earned his PhD in physical chemistry in 1969 and his DDS in 1979, and has been practicing dentistry in the Chicago area. Angela is the founder and president of a non-profit organization that owned a 60-unit low-income, senior citizens home. Both have been highly involved with Bible Study Fellowship International, serving in leadership for more than thirteen years, and were a part of the pioneering team invited by the Chinese communist government to start BSF for the locals in mainland China.
