Loving Singapore Block by Block

On the eve of Singapore’s National Day long weekend, the Day of His Power event was held online for the first time. A number of notable church leaders in Singapore shared from their hearts about the state of the church and missions in Singapore. Pastor Lawrence Chua from Living Sanctuary Brethren Church shared the strategy of “Loving Singapore Block by Block” as his church has sought to be a good neighbour over the years.

Jason Wong from the fathering movement, Elijah 7000, also pondered about Singapore as a land of beautiful houses yet with broken homes. Truly, today more than ever, as believers, we need to be sharing the hope we have in Christ to rebuild the broken homes in our beautiful nation. Happy National Day Weekend to all Singaporeans!

Alumni: We came to the right place

When Baatarsuren “Baataraa” Buyanmandakh (Mongolia), came to Singapore in Dec 2012, he was “heart-broken.” His younger son, Munhuul, three and a half, had passed away the year before. He and his wife Zulaa have another son, Odko, 12. Before the tragedy, the former Mongolia Campus Crusade campus leader had already planned to go for theological training. “We want to build future church-planters for the 200 unreached villages and towns in my country,” he says.

At first, the Buyanmandakhs were offered places, with free housing, to study in the USA. “But after visiting two schools there, we felt that their teaching contexts may not be relevant to our future ministries,” says Baataraa. “So we came to EAST. As soon as we settled down, we knew we’d come to the right place.”

Alumna: God’s Perfect Plan for Me

When Koh Li Ting, came to EAST in 2012, she was already diagnosed with stage-3C melanoma cancer. “I never dreamed that I’d complete my studies,” she says.

Not only did the former Cru Singapore campus staff reach the finishing line, she was preparing herself to serve in a land God had called her to since she was 17 years old. “Ten years ago, I spent six months in one of its cities,” she says, “and saw how God could use a Singaporean like me to reach out to the minority people groups.”
