Kim Jung Young
Jung Young is a member of OM. She ministered in Eastern Europe in 1991, and finished her long term missionary course in Singapore in 1995. She started ministering in Cambodia in 1996. She serves as the Director of His International Services.
Martin started serving with his wife as volunteers at HisChild Cambodia in 2013. Initially, he was serving as a manager at the Community College in the organisation. He was then appointed to oversee the whole project when it was resumed in Sept 2013. His responsibility include overseeing the construction of the building, preparing for the school operation, and engaging with external parties such as government officials, architect, construction company, lawyer, accountant, agents, and sponsors.
Before joining HisChild, Martin Chan was working as an IT manager in Sydney Australia. He had an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and a post-graduate degree in Business Management. He first came to Cambodia with his wife through Global Aid Network (GAiN) as short-term medical mission members in 2007. It was in 2012 when he and his wife realised God was leading them to become full-time missionaries serving in Cambodia.
He enjoys listening to all kinds of music, from classical to jazz and to contemporary Christian worship songs. He also enjoys travelling, swimming, skiing, and reading. One thing he misses in Cambodia is to spend time in front of a piano to play some of his favorite classical pieces from Beethoven, Chopin, to Liszt.
Koh Soew Kin
Mr Koh is an elder from Glory Presbyterian Church in Singapore, and that is the reason our team call him Elder Koh. He came to HisChild Cambodia as a full-time missionary in 2012. He was the Principal of a Christian school in Singapore before he retired and joined HisChild Cambodia. He will help us in setting up our school curriculum and will provide his expertise in preparing the operation of the school.
Besides his vast experience in education, he is also a very technical savvy person. Other missionaries always knock on his door and ask for technical help. It ranges from some small technical issues on their smart phone to a complete update of the operating system.
In his leisure, he enjoys spending time with his wife or reading IT journals and books.
Eunhee is one of the longest serving missionaries in HisChild Cambodia. She started serving in HisChild in 2008 and has been serving as our kindergarten principal since 2010. Like Elder Koh, she was a kindergarten principal when she was in Korea. She was a Montessori certified educator. Her responsibility in the team is to provide expert advice in setting up the curriculum for the kindergarten of our school.
Besides providing advice on education in the project, she is also a prayer warrior. Her prayer is strong and powerful, and she is very sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
