Volunteer Missionary









Mr. Y. T. Wan served as an educator in China for 6 years before coming to HRDI. While taking a break in his hometown, Hong Kong, in 2014, Mr. Wan was introduced to Miss Sarah Chang who had just temporarily returned to Hong Kong from Cambodia. Miss Chang is a Hong Kong Alliance Mission missionary responsible for the operation of HRDI in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She had shared with churches about the recent need of HRDI, namely, the temporary departure of their director, Mr. Philip Chhourn, for study leave. HRDI had been praying that the Lord would send someone to help out in the institute during the absence of their director. Mr. Wan, who grew up in the C&MA circle, is no stranger to the work of HKAM. In fact, he had served in an Alliance Church and taught in the Hong Kong Alliance Seminary. Because of his experience in the field of education, Mr. Wan thought he might be helpful in HRDI. And since he did not have immediate responsibilities in China at the moment, he was willing to serve as transitional personnel in HRDI. The rather difficult situation in Cambodia also fits well with Mr. Wan’s heart for serving under-privileged people. Mr. Wan is an enthusiastic educator who likes to encourage and help students in practical ways. He also enjoys motivating and training teachers to be more effective people helpers. What Mr. Wan wants to accomplish is already well-stated in the vision of HRDI: People’s lives changed through quality and holistic education.
