Through all my seasons

Ministry Profile: Hazelyn Mohan

‘I am leaning on God for His strength, His peace and His provision.’ 

Tasmanian Baptist Council Southern representative, Hazelyn Mohan, serves on the music team at Claremont Baptist. She has a heart for Christians who have lost their first love – God. Read on to find out more . . .

I am originally from Singapore and came to Tasmania 14 years ago to pursue my Bachelor of Laws at UTAS (does this make me a Tasmanian now?). I still am unable to get used to the weather and I often wear bright coloured coats, different coloured socks and shoes on each foot and layers and layers of clothes.

No one has time for same colour shoes on each foot! 

I currently work full time for the State Government (and that in itself was a journey of faith for me!). I am also pursuing my Masters in Cyber Security with UNSW online and on a part time basis. 

Family life

I come from a small family and have an older brother who is four years older than me. He is married and lives in Singapore as do my mom and dad. I am the only one in my family who has moved out of Singapore.

Faith Seasons

My own faith journey has been a roller coaster, but I know that through all my seasons, God never let me go. Not once.  

I come from a strong Pentecostal background and my dad has been in ministry for as long as I can remember. In Singapore, I attended an Assembly of God where I was encouraged to find my own faith and accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour.  

My own faith journey has been a roller coaster, but I know that through all my seasons, God never let me go. Not once.

I accepted Christ at the age of 14 and was baptised several years later; I only began to truly seek Him when I was older. When my dad started his own church, I was the pastor’s kid which meant that I was the first to arrive and the last to leave. I was the usher, the Sunday School teacher, the set up and tear down person, part of the music team and everything else in between.  

Having grown up in a home where God was always first, it created a strong foundation for me when I was ready to pursue God with all my heart, soul and mind.  

I have a heart for Christians who have lost their first love – God. My desire to help them find God again and reconnect with the One who loves them so much.  

When I graduated from UTAS, after being called to the Bar, I wondered if I should join my friends in Melbourne. However, doors were never opened for me and I didn’t feel at peace when making the decision to move. On hindsight, I now know that God had a greater plan for me. I met some wonderful people who I now worship with, attend bible study and do life with.

Church Life

Through fellowship, prayer and support, my faith grew here in Tasmania. I love to serve people. Through Intercultural Church (IC Church), I was given the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and be part of the music team, do a bit of sharing and sit on the elders board.

Late last year, IC Church joined with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Claremont Baptist Church. At Claremont Baptist, I serve on the music team and I am also on the Tasmanian Baptist Council as a Southern representative.  

IC Church continues to regularly meet every other month for food, fellowship and to grow our faith. I attend monthly meetings as part of the Glenorchy Churches Network, which is an opportunity for pastors and leaders to gather and pray with each other as we serve our community.  

I am also the Secretary of the Glenorchy Community Care program which is a not for profit food program that was initiated by the Glenorchy Churches Network to show God’s love to the community doing it tough by not just meeting their physical need but also their spiritual needs through prayer.

In my spare time, I like to read fiction stories – especially if they are of the crime and mystery genre. I listen to true crime podcasts most of the time. Mostly, if I am not at church or work, you can find me at home where I am most comfortable in my PJs and layers and layers of clothes to help keep me warm! 

Current challenge

I am time poor at the moment due to working full time and studying part time as well as being involved in my various ministries. I cannot wait for next year when I would have finished my studies and can get involved even more deeply into God’s work.

Patience is not my virtue, and my mom always says that I have a patience of a 5 year old! So if anything, in this season of my life, I am leaning on God for His strength, His peace and His provision.

The Best piece of advice?

People don’t care about what you know until they know that you care. 

Pray For… 

You can pray for me that in this season and next season, I will step out in faith and keep my eyes on the Lord.

Short ‘n’ Sweet

I am looking forward to. . . the end of the year when I would have finally finished my course (God willing!)  

I am worried about. . . my grades (currently!) 

I am confident. . . that I may not have enough but I have a God that is enough for me (Amen!). 

I am joyful about. . . the opportunity to serve God  

I would like to change. . . nothing (except maybe make time move faster so I can finish my studies!)  

I am at my best. . . when I am well rested and have chocolates (mostly the chocolates!)
