Dan in Indonesia: Live update

BeggerI’m writing from Indonesia, where Pak Gunar and I are trekking around some rural villages with a car full of Bible booklets and resources. We are on “mobile mission” with the goal of encouraging & equipping church planters and mission workers.

I’m writing briefly to encourage you that together we’re really making a difference! For those who have given toward our Indonesian outreach, I think you should know that you’re changing lives.

Pak Nehe and wife do a terrific work among Chinese Benteng children

Pak Nehe and his wife do a terrific work among Chinese Benteng children

We’ve just visited Pak Nehe who saw a great need among the Chinese Benteng (group of Indo-Chinese who are very poor on the outskirts of Tangerang). The kids don’t go to school & there are many problems – physically, financially and socially. Many are raised by their mother only as their fathers desert them. Pak Nehe is a Bible college graduate who we trained with The Visible Story. He saw a need and decided to start a school and outreach. They truly care for these Chinese Benteng children, helping their parents and sharing God’s love. We came to encourage him and his wife, bringing Bible resources and words of life for children and parents alike. Receiving hopeThe kids loved our booklet titles, “Who Cares about Me?” and “Why Me?”. Pictured, you can see some students reading and listening to God’s word.

This was the first stop on our mobile mission – the next is a little more confronting as we visit the Leprosy Hospital…. I’ll keep regular feeds through our FB page (“like” here).
