100 Days of Rejection by Jia Jiang

Gateway Church in Austin has so many remarkable people doing so many remarkable things. I am constantly surprised and amazed by our community!

This past Sunday, Jia Jiang, shared his story with us. You will be inspired, challenged, and encouraged hearing about his journey which includes moving from China to the USA, finding faith, starting his family, starting a company, experiencing the pain of rejection, and then finding notoriety because of his 100 Days of Rejection Therapy. Here are some of the highlights:

“Love is the international language no matter where you are from.”

“I learned that everything does not go perfectly because God wants to show me what’s really important.”

“God has a plan for everyone. Just ask!”

“I don’t know what is ahead of me, but I know God is behind me making my paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).”

“What you are going through could be a dark piece in the beautiful jigsaw puzzle that is your life.”

“Don’t focus on what you cannot control. Just focus on what you can control. Don’t worry about the outcome.”

“By trying to avoid rejection, we end up rejecting ourselves.”
