When I was completing my final year of university, my campus pastor sat me down and asked me to consider doing a one-year internship with my campus’ Christian fellowship. I jumped at the chance to spend a year getting paid to serve God.
About Andrew Koay
Andrew's guilty pleasure involves swaying to hits of the 80's such as George Michael's seminal art piece, Careless Whisper. Unfortunately, his guilty feet have got no rhythm. He can usually be found laughing among friends or shushing them in a cinema. Being a fresh political science and sociology graduate, Andrew's refusal to give up on the university lifestyle has resulted in him continuing to hang around campus as a ministry intern with the university's campus ministry. He is partial to great Mexican food and rejoices in its scarcity in his part of the world, knowing that it's a reminder not to get too attached to this life but to look forward to the new creation.
Entries by Andrew Koay
It was four years ago now, but I still remember vividly my excitement and anticipation in the weeks leading up to the start of university. Many of my friends and family always looked back on their time there fondly—some even longed to relive their university days. And it wasn’t hard to imagine why.
Standing outside the four-storied terrace house, it’s easy to get lost in awe. In land-scarce Singapore, it’s huge. It towers over you, its modern concrete exterior—a combination of clean, sleek lines with glass railings and a high varnished wood gate—showing you what luxury looks like.
“God told me to…”
All my life as a Christian, I’ve heard people around me use those words. People I looked up to would recount testimonies of how God had dramatically changed the course of their lives through an audible voice.
YMI (which stands for Why Am I?), is a platform for Christian young people all over the world to ask questions about life and discover their true purpose. We are a community with different talents but the same desire to make sense of God’s life-changing word in our everyday lives.
YMI is a part of Our Daily Bread Ministries.
