Description

Welcome to the first interview on the Asia for Life Podcast!

This episode is a casual conversation about pro-life ministry in Hong Kong. Joe Woodard talks with Kevin Lai, from the pro-life NGO Joy of Life. First, they discuss what's on everybody's minds now—the recent events in Hong Kong, and especially the massively popular protests against the extradition legislation.

People take different sides on issues like this, and even little differences of opinion can cause a lot of tension in families. But Kevin is a good listener and a conscientious father, and he shares about how his son decided to join the protests in a very creative and positive way—and ended up with donations from strangers—including sports drinks and even homemade Chinese herbal tea.

After zooming in on the recent protests, we talk about Kevin and his work in marriage ministry. He also shares about the surprising growth of pro-life ministry the past few years, and the production of a new pro-life movie project that will be released at the end of this year.

Kevin Lai has worked for the Catholic diocese of Hong Kong for 28 years, in the Diocesan Pastoral Commission for Marriage and the Family. So his full time job is coordinate ministries that help couples and strengthen families. Besides that, he helps run a small pro-life NGO, 喜樂生命 (Joy of Life). And last week, he actually took annual leave to volunteer for the 6-day Cana Marriage retreat in Hong Kong.

He's been pouring out his life for years, to bless families and to protect life through pro-life initiatives. So I'm very grateful to have him on the podcast!
