Give Back to EAST

Alumni Michael Tien (left) and Wong Soo Fong (right)


My wife, Soo and I are alumni of EAST, having spent 5 wonderful years at EAST as students.

During one of my first lessons the lecturer made this statement “If the student has not learnt, than I have not taught”. In my years of previous education, I have not heard such a statement and I knew that my time at EAST was going to be extraordinary.

A Christmas Reflection by Mrs Margaret Chan, EAST Partners-in-Ministry Program Director

There are quite a number of Christian platforms advertising Christmas concerts for our viewing on Youtube over the Christmas season. There are also Christian choirs giving online performances via zoom platform. Churches all over the world will conduct Christmas services on Christmas day. These are joyous ways to proclaim the Christmas message to the public, for viewers to enjoy performances and for worshippers to rejoice over the Christmas message being proclaimed.

Abba Father sent Jesus into this world as a tiny baby not just for us to celebrate Christmas once a year, in merry making and giving of gifts. Abba Father sent Christ into this world to become the Saviour of sinners so that we can be reconciled to Him and become His beloved children.

The true light

Design by Blessed Ong

The true light, Jesus Christ, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into being through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God. Have you received Jesus Christ into your life and truly believed in his name? When you pray to God and received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you become a child of God and that would be the greatest Christmas present you can ever have. If you have already believed and trusted in Jesus, take time to ponder this wonderful gift of being a child of God because of Him.

From FEAR to FAITH: Reflection on Faculty Development Day (Nov 23, 2020) by Ms Napitchaya Su Panum, EAST Faculty

I joined EAST in October 2019 with little teaching experience. It was my first time being on the other side of a seminary classroom! The fear of inadequacy was one of the biggest challenges for a “teacher-in-training” like me. However, the Lord has turned my fear into faith in the One who calls through EAST’s Faculty Development Day (FDD) training!

My doubt was caused by my misconception about teaching and learning. I knew that I couldn’t meet the traditional “Sage on the Stage” lecturing standard. However, through my experience during FDD, I learned that the “Guide on the Side” facilitating skill is the real art and science of teaching and learning that I need to develop.
