While he was pursuing his Master of Divinity in Intercultural Studies at EAST (he graduated in 2019), David was also the President of the Student Council. Some would have remembered his youngest son Samuel who would come along to help with vacuuming the premises after various events. They were a good father and son team. David and his wife flew into town from Hong Kong where they reside to visit Samuel who has recently been enlisted into Singapore’s National Service.

Passing of an Alumnus in India: Rev Themshang Sharik

(L-to-R) The late Rev Themshang Sharik, his wife Worthingla, and their children

 

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of an EAST alumnus, Rev Themshang Sharik, who has gone to be with the Lord on Sunday, 27 June 2021, at 4.25 am. He has been in ICU for almost 50 days due to post-Covid complications at a hospital in Guwahati, India. He is survived by his wife, Worthingla, and six young children. Let us uphold the bereaved family in our prayers.

Mr Themshang Sharik graduated in 2001 with a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counselling and since then has done church planting, training, and pastoral ministry back in North-East India. Until his passing, he was pastoring the City Fellowship Church in Guwahati. In late April 2021, his whole family came down with fever, headache, body ache, cough, etc. Thankfully all his children and wife’s conditions have improved since then. Themshang’s condition, however, took a turn for the worse, was tested positive for Covid-19, and he had to be hospitalised.

Please contact our EAST Alumni Coordinator if you have further queries on the above. Shalom.
