On Tuesday Steve Wible, pastor of the Christ Center Chinese Alliance Church in Miami will be here in the studios on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte to speak with us regarding the current situation in Hong Kong. He and his wife, Juniata, were missionaries in Hong Kong for thirty years, and that region of the world is near and dear to their hearts.
Raising children is daunting but raising children with special needs often brings a new set of challenges. Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte author and educator Jolene Philo shares that when we speak of children with special needs, "Nothing is more important than meeting the emotional need for love. Just as the body craves food, so the child's spirit craves love. When their love tanks are full, children respond more fully to the rest of life."
Rev. Steve Wible and his wife, Juniata have served in the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China since 1975 and have pastored five churches. Steve co-founded the International Christian School of Hong Kong where Juniata was Chair of the Fine and Performing Arts Department. He also co-founded Systematic Asian Leadership Training and has taught in East Asia for the last 26 years. Steve now pastors the Christ Center Chinese Alliance Church in Miami. He and Juniata have four daughters, three sons-in-law and three granddaughters.
During her twenty-five-year career as an educator, Jolene Philo collaborated with special education teachers to mainstream children in her elementary classroom. She left education in 2003 to become a writer and speaker. Jolene is the author of five resource books for the special needs community. She and her husband, Hiram live in Polk City, Iowa and have two adult children and three grandchildren.
Mornings with Eric and Brigitte helps start your day with spiritual encouragement, fresh conversation on current topics, and Christ-centered music—plus the latest news, weather, and traffic.
