- About the Author
What will you do if you are standing at a crossroad in life and God calls you to leave familiar surroundings for an adventure with Him?
In a remarkably vivid account, Jiamin Choo reveals her most intimate and candid moments from 25 handwritten journals penned over six years to share the life of a young person who, fresh out of school, obeyed God’s call to choose the path less trodden and serve in full-time missions.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the National University of Singapore, Jiamin became a volunteer crewmember on board Doulos, the World’s Oldest Ocean-Going Passenger Ship built in 1914.
From 2005 to 2009, she sailed to over 30 countries to bring a message of hope, and learnt to love the world beyond her shore, one port at a time.
Jiamin is now back in Singapore, serving with OM, an interdenominational missions organisation that wants to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached.
After graduating from university, Jiamin served on board OM’s ship Doulos from 2005 to 2009 and wrote Out of the Harbour, a book based on her missions journey in over 30 countries. Her passion is to journey with young people, encouraging them to draw nearer to God and His heart for the nations.
She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (National University of Singapore) and a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (Singapore Bible College). When Jiamin's not making tea, taking photos or counting stars, she can be found curling up with a book or journal.
