I was planning to go to the polytechnic and so had about three months of holiday. Between going out to work and joining Project Serve, I decided to join Project Serve as I felt it was a more meaningful way to spend my time. If I wanted some work experience, I could always get it during internship. So I signed up for the three-month track and never regretted it. I realised that SYFC is a community who is very focused on reaching youths with the gospel. I really enjoyed my time with my brothers and sisters in Christ, learning and serving God together.

My church leaders encouraged me to join Project Serve but I didn’t know what to expect. So I went for the Welcome Tea and heard that I could learn to use art to share the gospel. I thought the idea was very cool! During Project Serve, we went for sketch walks and also conducted calligraphy classes for interested students. I was also involved in creating some animations for an immersive technology project. I was able to use what I like to do to serve the Lord. Before this year, I had already read through the New Testament two times but I didn’t understand what I was reading until I joined Project Serve. I learnt to read the Bible on my own and understand the gospel better than before.
