Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
On any Sunday in Silicon Valley, daddy says, that only 6% of the people who live here go to any kind of place of worship.
Not just church. But anywhere. A temple. A wat. A mosque. A synagogue (Sat).
The god of the valley is money and success is education.
I don’t know about them things. I like the stories of Joseph and his coat of mini-colors (Ed. many colors), and the basket of Moses, and lions and great fish and and…. I like Sunday school. I like the people I meet in Sunday school.
Victor Ho is the friend of a friend of daddy, Skip Vaccarello. Daddy’s friend is a Christian. My daddy and mommy are, too.
I’ll think about the Christian thing when I understand salvation, propitiation, justification and other things that end in …ation. For now, I will just enjoy Sunday School.
It seems there are Christians in Silicon Valley who can also do well in business.
Victor Ho is one example. He created a company called FiveStars.
FiveStars was a company devoted to helping local merchants stay in business.
Christians do that sort of thing … help.
You can read the interview that daddy’s friend had with Victor Ho.
And maybe you will learn that you can be a Christian and do business in SiliconValley, too.
I’ll think about that later. First I need to learn what comes after 16. 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 22 …
Do you think Christians can be good business people, too?
Here are two more interviews with Chinese-American men who are Christians and good business people, too.
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
