From a traditional Chinese religious background, J encountered the grace of God through friends and church. Even her mother submitted to Christ through reading the Chinese Bible. While listening to a talk by Patrick Johnstone, J responded to an altar call to submit herself to missions in Japan. After attending another church, she came to ARPC and immediately became involved in the photography ministry, Drawn by Light. During this time J began exploring the Japanese Christian work in Singapore in the Japanese churches. She found a group reaching out to Japanese expatriates in Singapore led by a Japanese Christian couple. When they left, after much prayer she and her team started a Japanese/English language exchange cafe. This was paired with one-on-one meetings with the Japanese participants. Listen to this amazing story of God’s grace.

Light from Asia 02: Is a Christian a leader or a servant? A conversation with Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark
Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark discuss Christian leadership at the ARPC missions roundtable. What is a Christian leader? Someone who tries to influence people towards God’s purposes. Servanthood is not pleasing people but leading people to do what God wants them to do.
A leader puts together the jigsaw puzzle of the body of Christ to build them up. One of the privileges of leadership is being stretched. Christian leaders submit to God. Example: David submitted to King Saul and trusted God. The challenge of giving feedback to leaders. You grow as a leader by growing in your present circumstances. Example: Moses said God would make a way.
