CNY MG Outreach 2023

 

On 1 Feb 2023, the eleventh day of the Chinese New Year, five Mentoring Groups (MG) together with the Advancement and Academic staff went to the Joo Chiat neighbourhood with goodie bags of groceries and CNY greeting cards as a blessing for the community.

We had opportunities to interact with the residents and shop keepers in our neighbourhood. For our new international students, it was an eye-opening learning experience to be part of this outreach to connect with our neighbours this festive season. This has provided a bonding time to serve together as an MG.

This event was organised by both students and faculty. This was a time for our teaching faculty to serve together with our students and be part of their learning experience outside the classroom. In this way, our students were also being developed in leadership and ministry skills. This is part of what we do at EAST to develop our students holistically in the head, heart and hands.

The residents we met were welcoming and some even invited us into their homes for drinks, photo-taking and sharing in this festive time of celebration as a community. We are truly thankful for this opportunity to be a blessing to our neighbourhood during this festive Chinese New Year.

Prayer Pointer 2 February 2023

 

Are you confused by the noise and distractions around you?

“I am the good shepherd.  I know My own and My own know Me.” John 10:14 – ESV

How can you be assured of yourself and know the right way forward in the midst of crowd?

Praise God:

That God, the Good Shepherd, the one God of the Universe who made us, knows what we need and calls us His own.  We only need to know and to follow Him.

Pray for:

  • Students, staff and faculty members to know Him and listen to Him through prayer, reading the Bible and living out His Words.
  • EAST community will be able to distinguish His good voice from other voices. To live a life of loving God and blessing otherrs.

Faith in Action – Love Your Neighbour

Rev Gabriel Liew spoke on “Evidence of Faith”

 

How do we reconcile saving faith and good works in our Christian belief and practice?

Hear from Rev Gabriel Liew, a pastor with Living Hope Methodist Church as he spoke on “Evidence of Faith” in the first day of the Lunar New Year. He shared from the Scriptures backed by a lived personal experience of reaching out and ministering to those in need as an expression of loving his neighbours. He is also very involved with inter-faith work and seeks to show Christ’s love as “blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9, NIV).

Clare’s EASTperience

 

A day before my flight to Singapore, I questioned myself again “Is this what God wants me to do? Did I make the right decision to go to Singapore for my theological education?” Just as always, God spoke to me through His word and I am assured that this is His next step and direction for me.
