About D.C. Lee
D.C. Lee is a native Texan, Longview High School (Go Lobos!) and Dallas Baptist University graduate (1997), who has spent the majority of the last 20+ years serving overseas as a cross-cultural educator, missionary, and missions coordinator in Asia. Things got really exciting after he got married in 2008 and convinced his wife to move back overseas with their two young sons. They added a daughter while on the mission field. After 5 years in Asia, the Lee family returned to the States at the start of 2020 due to the rapid spread of COVID in their mission country and province. After two years back in the piney woods of East Texas, the Lee family now calls Singapore home.
IN HIS OWN WORDS (from the preface of “Floor Of Heaven, Roof Of Earth”):
“I was first introduced to the untamed rivers of southwest China when I spent two years as a foreign exchange student at a small university there. Catching a bus from the city for a half hour’s ride out to a large bridge at the foot of a Miao village and then swimming, floating, and hiking my way back to town was one of the recurring highlights of my time in that special place. Years later, my wife, children, and I would call that city our home. We spent countless hours, alone and with friends, splashing in the currents (sometimes with water buffalo!), barbecuing over hot coals on rocky shorelines, and exploring endless trails from one village to the next. Our oldest child was even baptized in one of our favorite streams. The beauty of the landscape was only surpassed by the beauty of the people who call these mountains, valleys, and rivers their home. We will never forget them.”
