Jian’s Claim to Fame
We take Jian with us when we do CrossFit on a regular basis. Actually, the day after we came home, she wanted to go to the gym with us. When she watches everyone working out, she lets it all sink in, and then she wants to try. She had already taught herself to walk on her hands and do pull ups. The most difficult exercise in CrossFit is called a Muscle Up. It requires you to start from a hanging position, pull yourself completely up, then push yourself completely up. I am still not able to do it after working hard for 2 years. After practicing a handful of times, Jian can do it!
We took a video of her doing it, and in less than 24 hours, 65,000 people had viewed it and were inspired by her strength! When I read some of the comments to her, she said, “Who are these people saying these things?” I told her that we don’t even know most of them. She said, “Do they know God? God makes me really strong.” Wow. What a platform she has and a heart for others. I can’t wait to see how she will continue to inspire others in the future with her natural instincts to be a leader.
