We have a great God!
Dan Hardie (Australia & NZ director) and I have just spent 5 days in Jakarta with the team, seeing how God has been moving through our work with street children in the slum areas, in the leprosy community, and in the orphanage and community centre in Bumi Inda.
Once again I was struck by the joy many in these communities have, despite the struggle and suffering they have faced.
- We saw how in the slum areas, the government has again demolished the shelters that had been erected for families and watched as children played, sang, and listened to a gospel talk together.
- We saw, prayed with, and ate with leprosy sufferers who have experienced a life of pain, lost limbs, and living as outcasts.
- We gathered with children who have lost one or both of their parents, yet week in and week out they have found a new family amongst God’s people.
- We met with students and graduates from Pulita Dunia who have a passion for seeing the gospel spread and the kingdom grow.
Here are some of the highlights:
