May is a State Registered Nurse since 1976. Her passion and desire to impart good nursing knowledge and practices led her to join a local polytechnic as a Nursing Educator since 1996.

Having served in the ministry for more than four decades they understand the challenges that pastors and senior Christian leaders often encountered and needed friends to talk to and walk with them. Beng Hock and May want to invest this phase of their lives to be “friends” (instead of calling “mentors” they prefer to be “friends”) of pastors and Christian leaders, to walk alongside them and help to strengthen their lives, marriages and ministries.
