In the face of an overwhelming outpouring of love and support for the Chean family, two links have been set up for well wishers to send tributes and messages.
In the wake of Joseph Chean’s sudden passing, the outpouring of love and support for the family has been overwhelming.
His daughter, Ashley, has requested for people to refrain from contacting her family directly, in particular her mother, Kim.
In a statement to well wishers, Ashley says: “We really appreciate your prayers through this season and it’s so beautiful to see how many of you have been deeply impacted by him. We’re so incredibly overwhelmed.
“The girls and I have prayed together and committed him to the Lord and trust that God is watching over all of us.”
“Although it’s really beautiful to see how all of you have loved him, I ask that you refrain from directly contacting my mother or my sister during this season. All we know is already on the Internet. Please wait for us to release more information. We will update you as soon as we can.”
Instead, well wishers can leave a message in either of the links below:
- This Telegram group will be read by Joseph’s family
- This online obituary site has been set up by one of his former mentees
Joseph, known for his lifelong passion for missions, particularly in YWAM, was involved in a road accident at 10.20am Istanbul time on November 15 on his way to the airport to return to Singapore after leading a Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Discipleship Training School in a nearby country. He passed away from his injuries.
He leaves behind his wife, Kim, and daughters Olivia and Ashley.
In an earlier statement to well wishers, Kim said: “The girls and I have prayed together and committed him to the Lord and trust that God is watching over all of us, and His glory will be seen in all this.
“We are holding up as well as we can and we have immediate family to see to our needs. I know you will be praying for us. Thank you.”
