Cru Singapore’s 50th Anniversary – His Story, His Glory

 

2022 is a milestone year for both Cru Singapore and EAST. On 17 September, Cru Singapore held a celebratory event at Bethesda Bedok-Tampines Church to mark her 50th anniversary celebrations and saw about 400 people gathering together for a time of worship, prayer, message, photo-taking at a photo-booth, and food (snack boxes were distributed and coffees made available to go with the pastries). Guests who arrived were treated to a keepsake coffee table book of over 50 stories titled “His Story, His Glory”. It is a collection of stories from the lives of Cru Singapore staff, disciples and volunteers from the pioneers, the present and even the past (one specially penned by Chan Chong Hiok on behalf of Chen Hui Lin, leader of Media Ministry for many years, who has gone back to the Lord).

Below are thoughts from an EAST staff, a faculty spouse and an alumnus who were present at the event. May their sharing give you a glimpse of the day’s festivities.

Crossing Cultures Digitally with CCTI

One of EAST CCTI (Cross-Cultural Team Internship) teams this year crossed borders digitally to work with ministry partners in Cambodia to conduct sessions of outreach and equipping to communities of young people. The sessions covered leadership education, life skills, bible study and music as topics of interest for young people. Read the Team Cambodia ministry report here and watch the video above or click here.

CCTI ministry is typically cross-cultural as teams will be ministering to people groups of different languages and cultures. In addition, teamwork within CCTI teams is also cross-cultural because these teams are typically made up of students from different nations. On top of learning how best to communicate with each other in the team, each team must also plan and decide how best to minister in a cross-cultural setting. This is indeed a putting together of the heart, head and hands–the holistic approach of equipping at EAST.
