On the evening of 30/11/2007, HISTEAM was born in the witness of a group of pastors, brothers and sisters who share the same vision, and willingly bless this new ministry.
The night started with a light buffet dinner, and a full house packed the living hall for the memorable night. Pastor Andrew shared about his calling, and the vision he received from the Lord to assist the local Chinese churches on caring ministry to the underprivileged. He counted the blessings from the Lord that encouraged him to walk in faith and trust in Him.
The night was graced by songs performed by Rev. Edward Chui, and Brother Yap Soon Lee.
Special thanks to one of our mentors, Dr. Denison who shared about message from the Lord for His people as stated in Micah 6:8. Another mentor Dr. Tan Kim Sai held a unique commissioning where he asked the management team members to wash each other’s feet in turn, signifying the service and humbleness as of our Lord Jesus Christ. He then reminded us on the 3 principles:
1. It is more blessed to give than to receive.
2. It is greater to serve than being served.
3. It is more excelled to satisfy others than own self.
Finally, a commissioning prayer was said by all attendees.
Since then, HISTEAM can only move forward, continue to grab the opportunities of serving the Lord and His people, and at the same time experiencing the grace of the Lord.
