Myanmar Pastor, EAST Alumnus: God is Our Help

Myanmar Pastor, EAST Alumnus S Htike Wai Saing

EAST News had a short interview with a recent Myanmar Pastor serving in Judson Baptist Church in Singapore, Ps S Htike Wai Saing. He graduated with a Master of Divinity in Teaching and Exposition in 2019. He has been a full-time pastor with Judson Baptist Church since 2014 but had started teaching Sunday school and serving as a youth leader since 2008. The last time he was back in Myanmar for ministry and visiting family and friends was in March 2020 before the circuit breaker happened in Singapore. The short interview below shows his heart for his people back home in Myanmar.

  1. What kept you busy in terms of ministry, family and church especially in the past year when Covid-19 happened?

Last year, I was kept busy with  near-daily zoom meetings and bible studies. I led nine bible study groups a week including my family and friends in Myanmar. My daily timetable has to be optimised to spread my time as efficiently as possible. Between studying the bible for two hours a day, leading bible study everyday,  and praying for my country, I had little free time left. Despite this, I did not feel tired and I enjoyed it very much.

Updates from an Alumnus who served in Central Asia

EAST News caught up with our alumnus Jonathan and his wife Michelle (not their real names) who have been serving in an adopted country within Central Asia for over 5 years. Jonathan had graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry. Last year, he and his wife returned to Singapore due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Below is an interview with them in regards to how Covid-19 has changed their lives.

  1.  How has Covid affected your work in missions?

Our cell phones beeped!  A message from the Singapore Embassy came into our WhatsApp chat group for Singaporeans in the creative access country where we served.  What caught our eyes was this sentence, “I would strongly urge all Singapore Residents on non-essential business to seriously consider returning home expeditiously.”  Something does not feel right and our antennas went up!  That was back in March 2020.
