From handling finances to selling Christian books, Wai has seen the Lord’s hand moving in difficult places and times.

Wai, who is from Perak, first joined OM in 1981 and was part of the International Finance Ministry. In the 80s, most summer outreach teams were given cash and it was Wai’s responsibility as part of the finance office to distribute the cash.

“It was my privilege to introduce a new finance system into OM in 1990 after several years of discussion among the leaders. 

“To see how the Lord so often answered our prayers when OM was in critical financial needs such as during the Logos accident* just strengthened my faith in Jehovah Jireh.

Wai stayed on in OM because of the closely-knitted community of the team in Belgium and the act of sharing everything in common among them, besides of course, OM’s main emphasis of sharing our faith and weekly prayer nights for the ministry and the lost. 

He is currently running a retail book kiosk in another country that also sells Bibles in English and the country’s national language

“We give thanks to God for allowing us to do this in this country. We have seen many Bibles go out and a few people have come to faith. 

*OM Ship’s first vessel, Logos, ran aground off the southern tip of South America in the early hours of January 5, 1988 due to rough weather conditions. All crewmembers were rescued, though nothing else could be saved.
