Blessed Good Friday!

Blessed Good Friday!

Good Friday is good because Jesus Christ died so that all who trust and believe in Him will have eternal life, and we no longer live for ourselves but for Him who died and was raised. Put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour today – find out more here or here.

For all who already trust Jesus, may this Good Friday be a day to reflect on our Saviour’s indescribable love for us that led him Via Dolorosa to Calvary, where He died that death we should have died. May we then live the life He wants and wills us to live, with faith, hope and joy abiding in Him.  Because He lives, we can face tomorrow.

Blessed Good Friday to all, from all of us at EAST!

P.S. See our Holy Saturday reflective post on “Why is there suffering?

New Beginnings: Adjunct Faculty Ng Khim Fatt

Adjunct Faculty Ng Khim Fatt with his wife Chan Wei Har

After Khim Fatt’s graduation from EAST, he felt the conviction to pursue further studies in a ThM in New Testament Studies at Trinity Theological College as he wanted to fulfill God’s calling in his life to reach out and equip Christian workers. He felt that teaching with EAST Extension Centers (EECs) aligned with his God’s call upon his life and just before the Covid-19 pandemic started, he had the opportunity to teach a New Testament Narratives class in South Asia through the EECs. During the pandemic, Khim Fatt was able to teach New Testament Foundation and co-teach Greek online for the EECs, in Mandarin even.
