Despite his exotic looks, Hang is actually a local: he has lived in the Borough of Greenwich for most of his life. Hang has a Hong Kong Chinese heritage and he speaks English and Cantonese. Hang is a qualified pharmacist and is married to Janise. He enjoys all things related to comic book superheroes, all the while knowing that there is one real living “superhero” who saves the world: Jesus Christ. Janise is a Malaysian who studied in Singapore, worked in Johor Bahru and now lives in London with her husband, Hang. Janise underwent ministry training at St Helen's Bishopsgate and while serving there, became convicted of the Gospel's power to unite people of different tribes, languages and nations. She enjoys cooking and experimenting with varying cuisines. Currently working as an English-Mandarin interpreter, she is slowly picking up Cantonese while hoping not to be confused with her Hokkien dialect, or forget the Malay language. Jing, originally from China, came to the U.K. as an international student. She completed her doctorate at Warwick University and also attended Cornhill Bible College recently.
