Rev. Alfred Yeo, an alumni of EAST and Senior Pastor of Zion Full Gospel Church, shares his personal journey of battling cancer while experiencing God’s presence and the ministry of the Body and prayer. He is learning that “it often takes time before one can see how God can take a tragedy and begin transforming it into a blessing.”
ENCOURAGED BY PRAYER AND BODY MINISTRY
A Testimony by Rev. Alfred Yeo
The month of July 2013 was the defining moment for me. For that moment in time, I felt my life was brought to standstill. After a random check of gastroscopy and colonoscopy, I was told that I had cancer of the osphepagus, and that I needed immediate surgery to remove the cancerous cell and that half of my osphepagus and stomach had to be taken out.
There was no time for me to reconsider any other options. I had to prepare myself for surgery on that weekend.
Someone asked me, how did you feel about the whole situation? Read more
A unique aspect of life at EAST is participation in a Mentoring Group (MG). All students are assigned to a MG which are led by faculty members. Not only is the leader a mentor for those in the group, but each member of the group also becomes a peer mentor for others in the group.
The MGs provide an environment for developing community, encouragement, prayer, fellowship, spiritual formation, integration, and character development. The desired outcome of the MG experience is life change, spiritual growth, mutual support and accountability.
This MG (pictured above), for instance, is co-facilitated by EAST faculty, Dr. Lewis Winkler and Mr. Nelson Lo. It is life-on-life, multi-cultural, and inter-generational. Members from this MG are from 8 countries, in their 20′s to 60′s, singles to granddads, fresh graduates to ministers to second-halfers. Yet all these MG members have one goal: whilst in a safe community of fellow brothers, to help each other be better followers of Jesus and thus be a more effective minister in their family and for the harvest.
For this Lunar New Year, may you be refreshed by a heartfelt poem inspired by Jeremiah 12:5 and composed by an EAST student, Ms. Koh Li Ting.
Since 80% of people globally are oral preference learners, how do we help them better receive, process, remember and pass on (transmit) God’s truths? An answer is to shape our communication approach holistically with the disciplines of orality-framed content.
Rev. Samuel Chiang (Executive Director, International Orality Network) was recently at EAST to teach and consult on “Orality for Learners and Teachers.” He taught a session at the school’s Principles and Practice of Teaching course, during Chapel, and at an afternoon Seminar with staff, students and guests.
Rev. Chiang demonstrated expository preaching through story-telling of the blind beggar healed by Jesus (see photos below).
