Q. Who's more organized?

Hannah Beth: "Xiao, definitely. I'm a terrible planner, I prefer to wing it, my calendar is crumpled up at the bottom of my backpack, and the inside of my car is a train wreck. He keeps a Ziplock bag of quarters - just quarters - in his glove box, just in case. Sometimes I put nickels and dimes in there to throw him off."

Q. Night owl or early bird? 

Xiao: "Night owl, I like staying up late and  hitting the snooze button a number of times before I get up in the morning."

Hannah Beth: "It depends... I love starting the day early with a pot of coffee and a long run, but I also love late night conversations, movies, and a glass of wine."

Hannah Beth: "I'm excited about traveling together, exploring God's creation and always trying new things. I think we're a good team because I'm more of a risk-taker, and he is the voice of reason but also loves adventures. I'm excited to serve together, too."
