Christine Pang is from Pahang but she lives in Kuantan. She came from a family who practise ancestors worship. At seven years old she went to a Christian school where she was exposed to Christianity. By 18 years old she became a Christian. She was working as an account clerk, but she had a call from God. John 6:27 – inspired her. God asked us not to work for foods that will spoil but to work for foods that endure for eternal life. At age 23 years she joined Logos. In 991 she joined OMF and had her first mission to the Philippines. Later she went to Macau.
She said if you are passionate about something you will spend time and effort towards that goal. E,g if you are keen on environment you will go green.
Act 6:1-7 Story of Philip
1. Ordinary yet extra ordinary – full of the Holy Spirit.
The above passage was about the Grecian Jews complaining about the Hebraic Jews that their widows were not taken care of. So the 12 disciples arranged for various people to have different responsibilities. Philip was assigned with the group to spread the Word because he was full of faith and the Holy Spirit. Just like him we must be passionate for God.
2. Out of comfort zone brought outstanding outreach.
Act 8:4 – the disciples were persecuted, they were scattered but while there they spread the Gospel. Simon the magician thought he could buy the Holy Spirit. But the Holy Spirit is not for sale, the Holy Spirit is free for all. Simon was converted.
3. On your mark go – Acts 8:26
Are you passionate about being Spirit led? Acts 8:26 Philip was led by the Spirit to go to Gaza where he met the Ethiopian eunuch. He was reading Isaiah which was talking about Jesus but he could not understand. Philip explained to him and converted and baptised him.

My Last Four Years in Macau
1st May 2010 – 31st Aug 2014
After her mission to Philippines, she went home to start a Chinese church in her home church. After that she was sent by OMF to Macau. She was sent to a Cantonese speaking church. She struggled because of her broken Cantonese with Malay word influenced. But by grace of God she used the method of teaching to her mum into good use there. She was asked to be a Bible teacher in Pui Ching School where she taught English to form 2 and form 4 students. She was well liked and did a good job there. In her other ministry she met people from China and she helped some of them to be Christians.
She also had the opportunity to meet Vietnamese house helpers in Macau. She met Ah Dong a leader of the Vietnamese, and through her work many also came to know the Lord. Another Vietnamese Ping Onn was converted and she shared to lead others to Christ. A Pastor of Zion church there was keen on helping the Vietnamese and through his church many Vietnamese were ministered to.
She met Thelma an 80 years old Christians who has been residing in Macau for 20 years. Her ministry was distributing Christian tracks to people. Christine saw that her track was useful and she wanted to use it but she did not know how to convey this to Thelma. One day Thelma called and offered her the copy right if she could produce 10,000 copies in Vietnamese. She did not have to pay for them. Christine agreed but wondering how she was going to achieve that goal. God was graceful and He brought several Vietnamese some in US, some in Macau to work on this project. Christine met a Vietnamese Christian in Macau who is familiar with IT as well as printing. Finally the tracks were produced. Praise God! These will be given out to Vietnamese in Macau, Malaysia and other countries.
