Today, I start work at a God-given opportunity that came about only in the last month or so. I am now serving as a salaried staff of OMF Singapore, or what is termed Singapore National Office (SNO), as Serve Asia and Young Adult Mobilisation (SAYAM) Coordinator.
Serve Asia is OMF’s short-term missions programme between 2 weeks to 12 months, and my role is to mobilize, train and send Singaporeans, particularly young adults, to any of our mission fields in East Asia. You can find out more at is.gd/serveasia.
I thank God and OMF Singapore for this unique opportunity to experience missions and partnering with individuals, churches and fields in this missions endeavour. Indeed, God’s kingdom is bigger than you or I, bigger than any one church, and bigger than any country or agency.
The motto, “Have faith in God,” hangs over the OMF compound at Cluny Road. How apt for this phase, season of my life, and an age-old legacy of Hudson Taylor himself, and countless missionaries after.
Apologies for not blogging more regularly for a while, kind of took a hiatus of sorts as things settled in real life. Reflecting on my new role, ministry, it’s still kind of that of a shepherd, guiding young people towards God’s mission and kingdom. So in future, look out for more missions related posts, but overall still within the theme of skillful shepherding, and still seeking to engage and integrate theology, ministry and culture.
