Business as missions: Building relationships
WE HAVE BEEN running our language centre cum cafe for just over a year. Through the connections established with our students, customers and neighbours, we have had opportunities to pray for those who need healing.
Thaa, one of our students, needed emergency eye surgery last year. We prayed for her and visited her during this critical time. Recently, our daughter Kaitlyn was invited to be the flower girl at Thaa’s sister’s wedding and Jeh Sie was asked to speak a word of blessing for the wedding couple. What a privilege to declare Numbers 6:24–26 at a Buddhist wedding!
One of our neighbours has been unwell for over a month. We prayed for her in Jesus’s name. Do pray that she will have a revelation knowledge of Jesus as her Creator and Healer!
We believe that this is what business as mission is about, that through relationships we will be able to reach people with Christ’s love and truth.
Kevin and Jeh Sie Chan relocated to Malaysia in May 2017. Jeh Sie is serving as PA to the Field Ministries Director and is also the Field Administrator for the senior field leadership team of WO.
From July 2011- Jan 2017, Kevin and Jeh Sie ran a Kingdom Enterprise among the Isaan Least-Reached People group (22 million, 0.1% Christian). They ran Global Connections Language Centre on the northern edge of the city for the first three years, and at the end of 2014, they moved to the other side of Korat city to start BORED? Board Games Café to reach university students. BORED? is now run by a local team and continues to reach out to Thai young people in Korat
