Jesus gave his disciples a final command “Go and make disciples of all nations.” What if the nations come to where we are? What an opportunity for Christians at our doorstep!
Hi, our names are Pinceau (Pin) and Enoch, and we are part of the ISMC team in Toronto. Pin is from Hong Kong and Enoch is from Sri Lanka. We are married and have two girls. We met each other in a student led Bible study group at our university when we were both international students in the UK.
We served with internationals in the UK for twenty years. We were international student chaplains at a large UK university and saw God’s amazing work among many international students from the nations. We have met many wonderful students and supported them in practical ways through friendship, fun, and lots of food in our home. Sharing life as a cross-cultural family with students from various cultural backgrounds and beliefs, and being able to walk along with them in a new country; to pray for them, and sometimes with them, are special moments that have encouraged our own walk with God. God opens up so many opportunities to build genuine friendships, and through them to share the Christian faith and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Developing Christian leaders who become influential in their home countries, or wherever God takes them, is a powerful testimony of international student work throughout the world.
God has since led us to ISMC and to be part of their international student outreach in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). We are excited to see how God will continue to reach and minister to international students through the ISMC team. God is already at work among the amazing International students studying in GTA. Pin and Enoch both work together as a team and compliment each other’s different gifting. Pin is a wonderful networker, very pastoral, and loves contemplative prayer, while Enoch loves sports, friendly banter, and trying out new ideas. In all this our two daughters also play an important part, as many young students enjoy the energy they bring to have fun and entertain people.
We invite you to partner with us in serving God’s will on these campuses, and wherever God directs us. Will you join us in…
PRAYER: We would love you to pray for us as we serve God as a family. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Eph 6:11-12). Let us also know how we can pray for you and in what God is doing in your life.
FINANCE: Your financial partnership will enable us to develop new outreach work among international students. We desire that our partners will be blessed in joining us in this ministry (Philippians 4:16-17).
ADVOCATE: God is doing great things among international students through ISMC. We would love you to share among your network, and be an advocate for us of what God is doing through this ministry.
