Come and see

 

The Worldwide Day of Prayer (WWDP) on 31 March 2021 at EAST, 118 Joo Chiat Road was a time of community, corporate prayer, and “come and see” for the EAST faculty, staff and students.

After a time of worship and reflection, adjunct faculty Ng Khim Fatt gave the heartfelt exhortation from the Word. It was given  to “Come and See” what God is doing around and among us. That was followed by an hour of prayer walk around the neighbourhood in five separate walking routes, lined out by students Choong Voon and Jasmine.

Updates from an alumnus in Colombo

From left: Edward, Daniel, Julia, Hanna & Samuel

EAST Alumnus Edward Kim graduated from EAST in May 2016 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies. After his graduation, he and his family has served in Colombo, Sri Lanka, with Sri Lanka Campus Crusade for Christ. Below is a short interview with him to get an update of how he and his family have been doing.

  1. What led you and your family to serve the Lord in Colombo, Sri Lanka?

Before graduating from EAST, I had planned to return to East Asia which I had served last eight years as a missionary, but Father God led me & my family to Sri Lanka, strange country to us at that time. In Sep & Oct 2016 (eight days), I visited Sri Lanka for field investigation. However, I found three main reasons which made me hesitate to serve in Sri Lanka after visiting. Firstly, I felt the weather was too hot for me. Secondly, the language (Sinhala) was difficult to learn. Lastly, it will not be easy to serve covertly on Campus because skin color of most people there is different from mine (Local campus students mentioned to me you are white, but my skin is not so white in East Asia. Anyway, I am easily recognisable among the local students on campus.)

Finally, I obeyed God’s leading after receiving several signs through God’s words, especially Genesis 45:5-8. Then my family arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka in Feb 2017.

Preparation and prayer

 

Ephesians 6:17–18: “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”

 

Spiritual warfare is a very real part of our Christian lives. This battle fought spiritually, is naturally fought with spiritual weapons. Previously in Ephesians 6, Paul details various parts of armour and attaches spiritual values to each one. (Ephesians 6:10-16)

In the end, he concludes with the word of God and prayer, every Christian’s most powerful resources.

 

Prayer is to become a permanent fixture in every Christian’s lives, as emphasised by Ephesians 6:18 “praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”

 

When going into battle, we need to be as prepared as possible, and Paul’s advice here is that prayer is one of the best ways to prepare our hearts and mind for spiritual warfare. Are you ready?
