張秀英姊妹於香港出生,十六歲時隨家人移民到美國,在紐約定居。她從小就到教會,十四歲時決志,後來在大學時清楚神的呼召,轉學到紐約上州水牛城大學修讀語言學,因為她相信如果日後神呼召她到非洲宣教,會比較容易學習當地的語言。

大學畢業後,張姊妹於1992年在芝加哥的三一神學院接受神學的裝備,第二個學期時上了一門兒童事工的課程,啟發了她對兒童工作的興趣,透過指導教授的鼓勵和教導, 開始在教會的兒童主日學實習,後來她以宗教教育碩士學位畢業。

神學畢業後,她與楊啟瑜弟兄結婚,之後配搭楊弟兄在教會的服事,和作全職的母親,在家中照顧兩個幼小的孩子。在2001時神帶領張姊妹在一間剛植堂的教會擔任兒童事工主任,開始了她兒童事工服事的生涯。在服事中神讓張姊妹看到兒童主日學,就像一粒種子,種在幼小的心田,漸漸長大、甚至會結果。透過與弟兄姊姊的配搭,把神的話語和真理活潑的教導孩子是她服事的宗旨。

2007年六月張姊妹被醫生診斷患上胃癌,神給了她一句非常有力的應許:「願你看見你孩子的孩子。」(詩篇128:6)藉著生病,神讓姊妹更看到生命的寶貴,每一天都是神所賜的,要把握機會,帶領更多的小朋友認識神,「教養孩童,使他走當行的道,就是到老他也不偏離。」(箴言22:6)

Tammy Yang was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States with her family when she was 16 years old. Her family settled in New York City. Being born in a Christian home, Tammy went to church when she was young and became a Christian at the age of 14. While she was a college student in New York City, Tammy felt that the Lord called her to full-time ministry. She then decided to change her major to linguistics and transferred to SUNY Buffalo. She believed that if God wanted her to be a missionary to Africa, it would be easier to learn a new language.

After graduating from college, Tammy went to Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago in 1992. In her second quarter of the theological training, she took a children’s ministry class. It was an eye-opening experience for Tammy and she felt in love with it. With much encouragement, support and teaching, Tammy’s professor/mentor challenged her to do her field education in children’s ministry. She later graduated from Trinity with a Master of Religious Education.

After graduating from the seminary, Tammy married to Chii. Besides being a full-time mother to two young children, she also assisted Chii in his church ministry. Then in 2001 Tammy was involved in a church plant and became the children’s ministry director. Her love and enthusiasm for the children continued to grow. She believes that the work of children’s Sunday School is like sowing seeds in the children’s hearts. These seeds will sprout, grow and bear fruit one day. Her goal is to teach the Bible creatively so the children can truly understand God’s truth and not be bored by it.

In June 2007, Tammy was diagnosed with stomach cancer. God was faithful and gave her this promise from Psalm 128:6 “May you see your children’s children,” assuring Tammy that she would see her children grow up despite of her illness. From her sickness, Tammy realized life can take an unexpected turn and she should not take anything for granted. Every new morning is a blessing from God. As she continues to serve God, she is deeply convicted that we need to win this generation for Christ. “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
