Born to Chinese parents, Brian did not visit China until his senior year in high school. Since then, he has visited China eight times for tourism, language learning, teaching and serving. When Brian spent one summer working at an orphanage, he was heartbroken to discover that 99% of the abandoned children were girls. Through that experience, he gained a passion for ending gendercide and bringing value back to girls across the world. During his undergraduate stint at Harvard University, Brian came to a living faith in Christ, and has since devoted his life to serving the Lord, with the hope of bringing the Gospel to unreached people. After college, Brian worked as a campus minister serving undergraduate students. When he was invited to join All Girls Allowed prior to its founding, he was surprised to discover how little was being done about the devastating consequences of the One-Child Policy. He has since been challenged to grow his faith and has committed himself wholeheartedly to the cause of ending gendercide in Jesus’ name. May God get the glory!
Valerie uses her skills as an artist to communicate the message of All Girls Allowed through many visual media including animation, video, and design. After graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology's Film/Video/Animation program, she freelanced for several production studios and worked with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship before moving to Boston to join the All Girls Allowed team. Because of Jesus' transformation of her life, Valerie is overjoyed to use her talents to help girls and mothers. Her heart breaks especially for victims of abuse, and in joining this work she is responding for God's intense love for girls, mothers, and the least of the least in China.
Director of Discipleship
Jay was born in a Christian family in China. He learned how his grandparents abandoned their firstborn daughter, and the consequences his family suffered for it. He also watched how his relatives who worked in the Family Planning office persecuted pregnant mothers for a living. Those childhood experiences made him dislike the One-Child Policy and gendercide ever since he was young. Through his experience in serving at different churches around China and working at All Girl Allowed, Jay realized the church should minister to women and teach the Chinese society about the issue of gendercide. Jay's role at All Girls Allowed involves sharing the vision of ending gendercide with different church networks and supporting them in building partnerships.
Director of Operations
Joy was born in China as the only child in her family; her father did not like her just because she was a girl. As someone affected by gendercide, she felt strongly called to work for All Girls Allowed when she heard about the ministry. Due to her own experience, she has a great passion for unloved baby girls and mothers in China. She became a Christian in 2004 and answered God’s call to be a children's minister a few years later. She went to a Christian university for graduate school in US.
Yilian became a Christian when she was in college and served in a house church. She joined the All Girls Allowed Case Team in July 2012 because she cares about people who are suffering, especially those at the bottom of society in China. As a mother, Yilian's heart is broken when she thinks about the innocent babies that have been killed and she mourns with their mothers.
Peiyi was called to be a daughter of God in September 2010. Since then, God has given her a burden for lost souls. He also guided her to serve at church since September, 2011. She was shocked when she first saw the picture of Feng Jianmei and her forcibly aborted baby, even though Peiyi was a doctor in China and has delivered babies before. In September 2012, she decided to join All Girls Allowed. She longs to help hopeless people to know Jesus.
