Prayer Pointers – 15 April 2021

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6, ESV

We have a loving and all-knowing God, who hears our prayer and provide for all our needs. We are to abide in Him, share our needs, and trust in Him to provide for us. We are, therefore, grateful for His calling and raising various stakeholders to minister and serve with EAST.

Thank God for:

  • Calling and raising all our stakeholders in their ministry to EAST

Pray for:

  • God’s blessing and protection for EAST board members, ministry financial partners, and field education supervisors
  • Field education supervisors to effectively guide, mentor and minister to students under their charge

 

Updates from an alumnus in Colombo

From left: Edward, Daniel, Julia, Hanna & Samuel

EAST Alumnus Edward Kim graduated from EAST in May 2016 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies. After his graduation, he and his family has served in Colombo, Sri Lanka, with Sri Lanka Campus Crusade for Christ. Below is a short interview with him to get an update of how he and his family have been doing.

  1. What led you and your family to serve the Lord in Colombo, Sri Lanka?

Before graduating from EAST, I had planned to return to East Asia which I had served last eight years as a missionary, but Father God led me & my family to Sri Lanka, strange country to us at that time. In Sep & Oct 2016 (eight days), I visited Sri Lanka for field investigation. However, I found three main reasons which made me hesitate to serve in Sri Lanka after visiting. Firstly, I felt the weather was too hot for me. Secondly, the language (Sinhala) was difficult to learn. Lastly, it will not be easy to serve covertly on Campus because skin color of most people there is different from mine (Local campus students mentioned to me you are white, but my skin is not so white in East Asia. Anyway, I am easily recognisable among the local students on campus.)

Finally, I obeyed God’s leading after receiving several signs through God’s words, especially Genesis 45:5-8. Then my family arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka in Feb 2017.

“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.” – Psalms107:6, ESV

Thank God that we can come to Him by faith, trusting Him to deliver us when we are in trouble. Even when we are not in need, we can always come to the Lord in thanksgiving prayer. Shalom.

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.” – Philippians 4:4, ESV
What a privilege to be able to rejoice in our Lord, from whom all blessings flow and who protect us from all danger and harm. May He grant us supernatural joy and shalom peace as we place our trust in Him through all circumstances of life.
