About Us

Welcome to the JamesandAiLingplusSophie blog. :)


We’re a little family in Singapore that is quite a bit different from normal Singaporean families. We live and work together in our little home. We run a little art and design house called Daytime. James does most of the work while I look after Sophie full time and help him out occasionally.


We met in 2002 at Youth With A Mission (YWAM, Singapore) when I was doing my Discipleship Training School (DTS) and James was on staff for the first time. Got married on 17 July 2004 and Sophie came into our lives on 25 Sept 2006. It has been a wonderful journey growing and serving the Lord together.


This blog is to journal our lives, observations, reflections, whatever we feel like actually. Oh yes a big feature of the blog is SOPHIE! Our baby is turning TWO in Sept 08 and this blog has gotten a lot more exciting with her in the picture. :)


Update Jan 09: We’re a little Singaporean family currently based in Matamata, New Zealand. We’re currently doing a Family Ministry School with YWAM. We rented out our little home in holland village and wrapped up our design company.


Update Jun 09: We’re back in Singapore for a short break and doing a bit of travelling around. We’ll return to NZ in July 09 to serve for a year on the Matamata YWAM base. Sophie is turning 3 in Sept 09.


Update Nov 09: We’re now in Vanuatu for outreach but we’ll be back in Matamata, NZ. We are now serving as full time missionaries in New Zealand and we’ll be doing this for 1 year from Jul 09 – Jul 10. We are part of the Family Ministries School that runs two schools – Family Discipleship Training School (DTS) and Family Ministries School (a level 2 YWAM school). Sophie is now 3 years old.


Update Apr 10: We’re staff on the Family Ministries School in NZ. I’m expecting no 2 due in Aug and Sophie is now 3 1/2.


We would love to hear from you so do drop a note to say hi!
