The process of setting up the 7 overseas Gospel-based drug rehabilitation centre

1992

Rev Berechiah Lee was a medium before he believed in Jesus Christ. He was also a gang fighter and drug abuser, addicted to heroin for 11 years. He entered Breakthrough Missions in November 1992, where his life was renewed through the gospel-based rehabilitation programme and began serving in this ministry until now.

2007-2012

After receiving his Bachelor's degree from Singapore Bible College, God led Rev Lee and his family to Vancouver where he served as a pastor of the Chinese Baptist Church of Vancouver. He saw many social ills in Vancouver, typical of big cities – drug abuse, alcoholism, gambling, cyber addiction, sex addiction, family violence – that resulted in psychological problems, family disintegration, deaths and other tragedies. These social maladies are pervasive and have afflicted the country and society, including many Christian families. The problems are intractable and change is impossible without a transformation of life.

2013

Encouraged and supported by Pastor Simon, Rev Lee resigned from the church to set up Breakthrough Missions Canada – Life Transformation Centre. The centre was registered as a legal, non-profit gospel organization to support the Chinese churches and Chinese social organizations in Vancouver in their work on addiction problems. Together we will be the salt and light of the earth and the name of the Lord is lifted high.

2014 - Present

The Canadian government recognized Breakthrough Canada - Life Transformation Centre as a charity organization, which would entitle us to tax exemption for all donations above C$20. By faith, we continue to provide free accommodation and life-transforming services to all addicts who come to us.

2020

Bringing Breakthrough Singapore and Sikkim together is sister Faith, Mission Director of India Northern Border Christian Ministry with the objective of mobilising Christian ministries in North India. Moses Nursuses Lepcha, a church leader in Sikkim, shared his concerns with Faith on the large number of drug addicts wandering without a home while inflicting great pain on their families. With a strong “Macedonia vision” and urging of the Holy Spirit, Faith sought help from Pastor Simon Neo and his ministries. 

Sister Faith and her team had followed Pastor Simon on a mission tour to some drug rehabilitation centres in Kunming, China a few years ago and she has had a good understanding and appreciation of Breakthrough’s ministry. Faith had brought Sikkim’s needs to Pastor Simon’s attention who had corresponded with Moses for more than a year before meeting him at Sikkim last year. 

Moses, being the full-time Director of Breakthrough Sikkim, has set up an executive committee to guide the direction of the Centre, has rented a place as the Centre’s premise and has accepted residents. It has adopted an operation modelling on Singapore’s Breakthrough, being a non-profit making, free-of-charge and faith-based Christian drug rehabilitation centre relying not on any rehabilitation medicine nor one’s own efforts, but solely on Jesus Christ alone. Main objectives, likewise, are preaching the gospel and re-integrating ex-drug addicts into the society. Currently, monthly rental of the premise is funded by a Christian sister, food is supplied by the Director’s family.
