Purpose 158: Vivian Mabuni: Open Hands, Willing Heart
John introduces us today to Vivian Mabuni, a national speaker and writer with a passion to share hope and life through intimacy with God. Listen in as Vivian discusses wrestling with the goodness of God, and walks us through the devastating aftermath of the 90’s Rwandan genocide. She describes to us how the image of God being reflected through the Rwandan people was breathtaking and awe-inspiring. She also has a lot to say about women in ministry! Did you know that Jesus was counter-culture for the time when it came to interacting with women? Find out what this means on today’s episode.
Vivian has 30 years ministry experience on staff with CREW (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ). Vivian grew up in Colorado as a cultural buddhist and came to Christ in high school. As a teen, she drove herself to the mall and bought her first bible. She tried to read it but it just didn’t make sense. Around this time her father moved the family to Hong Kong, and Vivian grew angry with God. She didn’t know anyone, she couldn’t speak the language, and yet…God met her right there in Hong Kong, of all places! Vivian is an author of “Open Hands, Willing Heart: Discover the Joy of Saying Yes to God”, a book on surrender.
