In Thanksgiving – for This Semester

We had our final Chapel of the semester this week. In this season of safe distancing, EAST has been convening online for all the Chapels this semester. For many of us who have been at EAST for a while, these online Chapels have been very unique in the history of EAST.

We give thanks that online platforms have been available for us to ‘meet’ for Chapel, worship God synchronously, and even interact and pray for each other in breakout rooms!

We also give thanks that we are now into the last week of classes for this semester. It has definitely been a steep learning curve for our faculty and staff to switch over to online teaching platforms, and tough for our students to be in front of the computer for longer hours than before. 

With a spirit of thanksgiving we approach the end of this semester, and also with thanksgiving, we look forward to the fellowship and guidance of the Lord for the semesters ahead.

We say a big “Thank you!” to everyone who has been journeying with us in these times, and we pray that Jesus keeps each one of you close to Him now, and in the seasons ahead.

 

 

My Grace is Sufficient For You

God’s all sufficient grace.

Jacob Li and Liong Kwok Wai’s Mentoring Group recently gave us this reminder at Chapel, as we recalled and recorded recent instances of God’s grace on slips of paper, which we pasted together to form a big “GRACE”.

Piecing together all the testimonies also reminded us that altogether, they spell “GOD”, the One who has made all these possible.

May the grace of God indeed prove sufficient for you.

Appreciating Chinese New Year at Chapel


EAST gathered this week for a very festive Chapel service filled with the celebratory spirit of Chinese New Year. The leading Mentoring Group took everyone through a hands-on session of mutual blessing with the exchange of well-wishes, mandarin oranges and red packets.

Be blessed with a fantastic Chinese New Year holiday season filled with the joy of the Lord!

This Semester’s Concluding Chapel

 

Today we had our last chapel for the semester. Our faculty, Dr Keith Shubert facilitated us in a time of Communion with the Lord.

“The Lord is my Shepherd; that’s all I want.”
Such was the concise notion of Psalm 23 according to a child. The sheep of the Shepherd need only Him, for through Him all will be well.

Blessings by Faith through Earnest & Mingli

 

At a recent chapel service, we saw faith in how Earnest & Mingli obeyed the Lord’s leading to bring their music as a blessing into communities near and far.
