“Both riches and honour come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.” – 1 Chronicles 29:12, ESV

Are you struggling in your own strength to meet deadlines and to make ends meet? Let go and look to the Lord for empowerment.

Praise God:

  • That our powerful Abba father rules and reigns, bestows honour and wealth to whoever He favours.

Pray for

  • Our hearts to be aligned with God, as we submit ourselves in humility to Holy Spirit’s leading.
  • EAST community to be blessed by God, to be used by Him for His purpose to glorify Him and bless others.

Hearing Each Other Out in Inter-generational Dialogue

EAST and Capelle Church Equip recently hosted an inter-generational dialogue over the joys, challenges and hopes of Christian leaders across the generations.

The panel presented and interacted over three aspects of ministering across the generations. They engaged each other’s thoughts and constructively responded to a number of questions from the floor covering the generational challenges on multiple fronts. These include having conversations with (and between) children in the family, recognizing the merits of the different generations, having genuine interest and concern for the younger generations, responding well to leadership, recognizing the need to nurture upcoming generations, and cultivating a helpful culture of interaction that facilitates healthy conversations in the long run.

Each member of the panel represented a different age group covering the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. It was a lively discussion yet unifying and edifying in its desire to bless and which concluded with prayers of inter-generational blessings and thanksgiving.

May the event video be a usable resource for further discussion and prayer in your community.

EAST Alumna Sophie Lo as Mother, Wife & Christlike Leader

L to R: Nelson Lo, Hannah Lo (17), Sophie Lo, Joshua Lo (15)

Leading up to this Mother’s Day weekend, we are featuring an EAST alumna and EAST staff Mrs Sophie Lo who is a mother, wife and leader in EAST Community. Sophie is a mother to two teenagers, Hannah (17) and Joshua (15), wife to EAST’s Dean of Administration Mr Nelson Lo, and works in the EAST HR Department. She graduated with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (2020) and was awarded the Spiritual Multiplier Award. Currently. Sophie also oversees the social media platforms for the WOW MOM ministry of Cru Singapore. Below is an interview with her on her juggling responsibilities among her varied roles and thoughts on motherhood.

  1. Sophie, how did you manage to juggle your responsibilities as a wife and mother while also completing your studies, and fulfilling your duties at the EAST HR department?

Slow and steady described my study journey at EAST. When my kids were very young, I took one course at a time, so that I could give attention to my kids and yet reaped the benefits from my studies. As my kids grew older and more independent, I began to take on more courses in order to complete my program within a time frame. The journey was slow and took me a very long time. Fellow students who started their program at the same time or even after me, have graduated one after another while I would still be registering for courses to complete my credits requirement. Despite the slowness and length of time taken, I have enjoyed my studies thoroughly, was able to apply most of what I learnt in my ministry, and could also fulfil my duties at the EAST HR department.

Prayer pointer 5 May 2022

 

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” – Psalms 28:7, ESV

Do you feel burnt out, defeated and in tatters?  Who can you rejoice in and trust to put a song in your heart to raise you up triumphantly?

Praise God:

– That our heavenly father, the creator and author of our lives has our best interest at heart.  He is readily there to bless us.

Pray for

– Our hearts to be attuned with God’s will to know and to fulfil his purpose in us so as to glorify him.

– EAST community to continue to rise up in God’s strength and protection; trusting Him to lift us up in victory.
