Ella is serving in a restricted area in Asia and is a first generation Christian in a Chinese Buddhist family. She came to Christ in university and was called to reach her people in the last year of her undergraduate study. She then worked in a Christian organisation and after a few years, received clear direction to go deeper in training ministry, and proceeded to take her master’s in Divinity.
Ella has developed basic courses for first generation Christian leaders in rural churches in Asia to help them understand the Bible and practical ministries useful for newly founded churches. She also works with brothers and sisters to develop camp activities for children and youth. Her goal is for church leaders to build up churches with holistic ministries through appropriate training.
Although churches in this region of Asia face much restrictions and persecution, they are becoming more and more involved with mission. This need pushes Ella to go into further studies to help develop mission projects with these local Christian groups.
Ella is currently training and equipping Christians in Asia to become missionaries. She also heads other missional initiatives such as Marketplace Ministry and Business As Missions training.
