Dr. Ming Wang on Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes

Join Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes as we profile organizations and leaders who lead by example. With extraordinary acts of kindness and charitable giving that help countless lives daily, these organizations and leaders embody "Be the change you want to see in the world".

Throughout 2013, listeners have heard from presidents of organizations who are global change agents. We will also hear from CEOs of social enterprise businesses who are changing communities and college educators who are taking their students out of the classroom and into surrounding neighborhoods to learn and serve others.

On Saturday, December 14, 2013, listeners will hear from Dr. Ming Wang of Wang Vision Institute and the founder of the Wang Foundation. Tune in to hear Dr. Wang give updates on Maria, a 15-year-old Moldovan orphan, long and arduous journey from darkness to sight. Over a year ago, Maria was brought to Dr. Wang's attention by Steve and Lynn Hendrich who were on a mission trip. They came back to the states and shared about the young, 15-year-old blind girl who had been living in a special needs orphanage in Balti, Moldova. In the fall of 2012, Maria’s story became the inspiration and primary focus of the foundation’s annual fundraiser, the Eye Ball.

Along with Maria's progress, Dr. Wang will share how science and faith coexists and his journey to United States. This show will help us see clearly the gift of being a blessing to others and how our talents are meant to be used to help enrich the lives of others.

Living Your Best Life, a radio show that empowers, inspires, and motivates us to live our BEST life, is heard on 760AM The Gospel in the Middle-TN area, Tune In, Inspirational Networks, military bases and on Ustream.TV worldwide from 9:00-10:00am CST.
