A Country Of My Own

A Country Of My Own

During his sophomore year in Singapore Management University, Shawn Wang made a decision that didn’t make sense to most— he chose to follow God’s leading and use his student exchange programme to walk the mission field in Quito, Ecuador.

In this deeply personal account of those 160 days, he shares what it is like to live as a young missionary in a foreign land, building the local church alongside fellow seasoned missionaries. Drawing from his journal entries and written correspondences, he presents an honest, insightful, and realistic first-hand experience of what it is like to follow God in obedience, to the mission ground.

‘A Country of My Own’ is a candid account of the joys and challenges of serving the locals in Quito, Ecuador. Glimpsing from the diary first penned in 2013, this book recounts a defining chapter in the author’s life of following God amidst uncertainty, and how that experience continues to shape his life today.

SHAWN WANG published this book in obedience to God’s prompting, and continues to share his experience to inspire undergraduates to organise their student exchange around missions work. He dedicates all sales proceeds of this book to his home church, Hope Church Singapore, in support of its missions efforts.

Our values are the daily beat to which we jive.

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
