Recently, EAST News got in touch with Dr Tan Sin Guan and Dr Voon Yeen Bin who graduated from EAST in 1999 with an MDiv and an MA respectively. They have many sweet memories of EAST. Their eldest son Matthias was even born while they were both here. Matthias learned to walk in the school library at Dorset Road when he accompanied his young parents to EAST. Fast forward to today, Matthias has graduated from Messiah University in the USA and is preparing to enter the workforce. He has a younger brother Zechariah, 20, and sister Seraphines, 18.

EAST Mission Hub: A Facility to Bless the Nations

 

Since the founding of East Asia School of Theology in 1992, the Lord has provided suitable places to nurture the school. In the initial years at a meeting room in Cru’s Great Commission Training Centre expanding to a larger rented facility inside Parish of Christ Church that became home to the growing EAST family for 25 years. In 2018, thrust into a period of transition with a building re-development in Christ Church, the Lord led the Board of Cru Asia Ltd and the leadership of EAST to a freehold commercial building in the Joo Chiat area. Today, 118 Joo Chiat Road is home to East Asia School of Theology as the EAST Mission Hub.

Bangkok Alumnus – Lockdown but not lock out from ministry

Jonathan Yaesung (Son), Rachel Yaerin (Daughter), Jaesoon Kim (Wife) and Simon Chung (Alumnus)

Simon Chung Yongho, EAST alumnus who graduated with a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies in 2011, has started serving in Bangkok, Thailand, with the Thailand Campus Crusade for Christ together with his family since 2012. EAST News caught up with Simon recently and found out how he has been doing in Bangkok. Below is a short write-up that Simon has sent to us.

“Due to Covid-19, Thailand had to be on lockdown for a while. But it was only closed temporarily and I was able to go back to mission on campus. With all the restrictions in Bangkok, I was not able to do all the normal things I did (on the campus) before Covid-19. In addition, we have reduced time spent on the actual campus, and moved a lot of events online. Online Zoom classes and other apps were able to help us become more involved than pre-Covid period. But I cannot say I am totally satisfied with this. We still miss seeing one another in churches and meeting up physically.

Mikeel Arana on a Mission

Design: Wong Ee Yuing

 

Mikeel Arana is our first year Master of Arts in Christian Ministry student from the Philippines. He has been enrolled since last July but due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation around the region, he has been studying online. He was recently featured in a video sharing about using his multimedia skills for the Lord.

“I started my graphic design and video editing journey at church. I still remember the first youth event poster I made with PowerPoint and the first PAW Fest video made with Windows Movie Maker. Haha! Never did I imagine that I’d get to do what I do now—making graphics and videos for churches, ministries, and brands. God has given me these gifts and I want to serve Him with the gifts He has given me. Moreover, He’s given me the gift of life so now I live my life for Him.” – Mikeel Arana
