Another Proud M Theol Graduate!


This morning, my Master of Theology student, Lal Rawn, successfully defended his thesis on "The Concept of Indwelling Presence of Spirit-Paraclete in Jesus' Farewell Discourse in John 14-16". Heartiest congratulations to Lal Rawn, who is from the Evangelical Free Church of Myanmar.

Today's viva is just one of the many happy moments for Lal Rawn. His wife is expecting their first child in about 2 weeks' time.

I wish you all the best, Lal Rawn. It is a real joy to see how far you have come. All your sweat, hard work, and perseverance had finally paid off. I am proud of you. Well done.

I share the great joy too...

I wonder candidate from myanma background, how to cope with the Th M english requirement successfully?

sir, with my poor english, you think I can cope too?

This is exciting. Especially with Myanmar making it harder for non-citizens to stay ... now I hear they have to leave the country after 3 months and reapply for a visa (no more extensions of visas.

Praise God and God bless STM for her part in helping the church in Myanmar.... er Burma?

Hi Paul,
Thanks. Lal Rawn is a theological educator in Myanmar, so he will be returning to the college to teach.

Hi Sceptics,
First, we do require TOFEL score. If one falls short, there will be English courses available. Second, some of our students are admitted to MMin programme first before being upgraded to M Theol - that will give them some time to get adjusted to the use of English langauge.

I think if you are willing to put in some hardwork, there should not be any major issue on English language. Help is available.

Praise God!!!!Special thanks to you..Dr. Lim Kar Yong, for your un-tireless guidance. Your fine insights and wisdom in NT studies without which I would not have been able to complete this work. I am proud to learn under your supervision as Paul is proud to learn under Gamaliel. Once again Thankyou.
