“My story: painting for his glory”: a delightful collection of paintings. “My Story: Painting For His Glory” is the creation of published author Andrew Lai, who completed his secondary education at the Anglo-Chinese Secondary School in Kampar, Perak, Malaysia. After graduating from university, he became a math and science teacher in Malaysia. After immigrating to San Francisco, Lai worked as a cost engineer, then became vice president of a small construction company. All the while, he was teaching an adult Sunday school class at a Baptist church, which eventually ordained him as a pastor.
While pastoring the church, Lai attended and graduated from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, California. Because of his thirty years of service to Yiu-Mienh Baptist churches along the west coast as a lecturer and youth camp director, he was awarded an honorary doctorate. of Divinity by Evangel Christian University, Louisiana.
Lai was married to his wife, Liza, for forty years until she died of cancer. He has three children: his son, Daniel, is Young Life’s associate regional director in San Francisco; his daughter, Christina, is a linguist; and the youngest daughter, Emily, is an auto mechanic. All three are married and each have two young children.
Lai shares, “Even though he has loved art since elementary school, the author didn’t have the chance to go to art school. After graduating from college, as the eldest son, he needed to find a job quickly to help support his widowed mother with six children. As a math and science teacher, he volunteered to also be an art teacher due to teacher shortages. After getting married, he had to work to support his own family. However, he never failed to help make artwork for his Baptist Church, such as painting many ten-by-thirty-foot sets for children’s musicals, Easter and Christmas dramas, etc. .
“It was only after he retired from pastoring the church that he seriously took up art as a hobby. This led him to become an award-winning international artist. Many would say he is self-guided, but he instead refers to himself as a God-guided artist. He painted many paintings of wild animals, flowers and birds, landscapes, portraits, etc. Some of the paintings featured in this book were sold to raise funds for missions and church planting work. He likes to describe himself as a “painter of his light”; that is, to paint for the glory of God. Hence the title, My Story: Painting for His Glory.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Andrew Lai’s new book offers a visually inspiring selection of highly crafted works.
Lai shares appreciation for his God-given talent and hope to enrich his fellow art lovers.
