2 new supporters!

We are praying for you all.  We are confident that God is at work in each of our lives through this time of quarantine. God is blessing even in these difficult times! Thank you for praying for us. I appreciate the emails, texts, and calls. We rejoice about another church that voted to become our newest financial partner. Praise God for his provision in our ministry. That is our 2nd new supporter this month!

There have been three more online church services this past week in which I preached and presented. I am about to record one more message for a church that we were scheduled to be with on Sunday. Please continue to pray for these video messages to be used by the Lord. 

Do you speak some of the Indonesian language?

The words “orang hutan” mean “person jungle” or “jungle person”. I know we are all ready to move forward without this virus affecting so much of our lives. I am including two interesting news articles about Indonesia. You get to choose if you want a story that includes COVID 19 or one that does not.
 

News without COVID 19:
“Ray of Light (Sinar)” was born in Indonesia.

News with COVID 19:
We are going to scare you if you disobey us! 

Have you ever fasted for a month?

Did you know that Ramadan is beginning? Do you know what it is?

Pray and Praise 

So many have asked about how we are doing during this time. We are doing well. We are ready to get to Indonesia! We do know that God’s timing is perfect. We are working while we are waiting. Thank you for counting to partner with us through your financial and prayer support. Please pray about an exciting announcement for young people that you know! I’m a part of a group that is wanting to help young people be better prepared for what God wants for them. Check this out and sign them up if they would like to be a part of this exciting ministry. This is for young people ages 8-18.

Quarantine 2020

Check out our video

Please pray for Indonesia.

Indonesia is starting to have severe issues like many other countries across the world. The sickness is spreading quickly. They still do not know the exact total of those who have been affected, but there have been 514 confirmed cases and 48 deaths. One report said the death rate is currently at 13% for those who are getting the virus.

Because of how quickly things are escalating there in the country, the Indonesian government will be paying bonuses to doctors and other medical staff during this time. Indonesia’s main island, Java, is one of the most densely populated places in the world. Only time will tell how this impacts lives over the next few weeks.

I have never heard of a signing bonus for missionaries, but the need for missionaries is far greater concerning Indonesia than medical staff. This virus is dangerous, but there is hope

Without Christ, there is no hope after this life. I love Indonesia. I hurt for them concerning the repercussions from this that they will be hit by for months to come. However, their greatest need is to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray for more missionaries. Please pray for every Christian that is currently in the country. Ask God to work powerfully through this tragedy. Pray for grace for each believer.

We are praying for you.

Please let us know how we can pray for you. We know that this virus has affected people in different ways. How are you doing through this? How has it affected you and your church? Our family is doing well. God has been so good to us. We are thankful for good health and safety as we traveled home from meetings this past week.

Thank you for partnering with us to Reach Indonesia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

March 2020 Prayer Letter

February  2020                                                                                                  

Dear Fellow Laborers,                                                                       

We’ve traveled 5,000 miles this month! We are so thankful for a full calendar with mission hearted churches. God has given us 5 new supporters! Thank you so much for praying and partnering with us in the work that God has for us right now as we prepare to move back to Indonesia. We are incredibly humbled at the sweetness and generosity towards our family from you all.

It was great to hear that a young man, who is deaf, surrendered to be a missionary. We met him at a missions conference a couple of weeks ago. Isn’t it great to see what God is doing in the hearts and lives of people today? I also want to say a special thank you to pastors, mission directors, and the people of the churches for all the work that goes into hosting missionaries. So much work goes in behind the scenes. It does not go unappreciated by our family.

Thank you to all who have given! We now have $3,528 that has been given for our Setup Fund! We will need to purchase everything from furniture to a car once we arrive in Indonesia. If you would like to help with this need, you can do so by either donating through our mission board or by clicking the link below. We serve a great God, and we know that He will provide all of our needs. 

We are looking forward to the Our Generation Missions Camp coming up this summer! For more information and to register, you can click the photo below.  

Reaching Indonesia for Christ,

  • Praise: $3,528 in our Setup Fund!

We are blessed to get to serve God!

We have really enjoyed being in four different churches this past week spread over Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia. Thank you for praying for our safety as we travel. 

Our family’s ministry has had five new supporters so far in February. Please continue to pray about with us that our financial support will be raised quickly. God has been so gracious to us. A family opened their home to us. A church took us to their “mission closet,” which ended up being Costco. We greatly appreciate the gifts and love offerings to us. With that said, we are most excited to see what God is doing in the hearts of those we meet along the way.

Please pray for us as we continue to work to get back to Indonesia. A huge praise is that we had $1,500 more come in this month for our “Set up Fund.” Please rejoice with us about God’s provision. If you would like to give toward our set up fund, you can at the link below.

Thank you for partnering with us to Reach Indonesia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

7 new supporters – Praise the Lord!

                                                                                                     February  2020 

Dear Fellow Laborers,

The new year had a great start with us receiving seven new supporters! We are so grateful to God as we have seen him provide for each of our needs. Please help us pray for at least five new supporters this month. We are eager to return to Indonesia!

Thank you to our supporters for your faithfulness. You are in ministry with us through each love offering, every meal prepared, prayer prayed, and time given to share our burden.

We are saving now for our set up fund. We will need to purchase everything from furniture to a car once we arrive in Indonesia. If you would like to help with this need, you can do so by either sending a donation to our mission board or by clicking the “make a donation” button below. We serve a great God, and we know that He will provide all of our needs.  

Make a donation to help us Reach Indonesia

Indonesia is extremely culturally diverse. Spread across Indonesia’s 18,000 islands are over 300 ethnic groups. Each group has its customs and traditions. There is such a great need for the Gospel to be preached and churches to be planted! We are praying for more laborers. Would you consider giving your life to go to these people? 

We are looking forward to the Our Generation Missions Camp coming up this summer! For more information and to register, you can click the photo below.  


Reaching Indonesia for Christ,

  • Opportunities to witness
  • Many new supporters this month

  • Our set up fund

5 new supporters so far this year!

We praise the Lord for 5 new supporters!

God was so good to us in 2019 and he is still pouring out his blessings in 2020. Thank you for praying for us as we have already been busy with traveling this year. You are part of our ministry as you labor with us in prayer. God is answering your prayers and raising our financial support. We have had 5 new churches partner with us so far in 2020!
 

More people surrendering to be missionaries!

The OG Conference was a huge blessing as people were challenged to be willing to serve on the foreign field. We must not only pray about where in America God wants for us to serve. Please pray for those who have surrendered to take the next step in becoming missionaries. The Devil will certainly attack them.

Indo Info

Instead of having different states as we have in the US, Indonesia has provinces. There are 34 provinces in all. 

Because of their unique features, I want to bring to your attention these three provinces.

  1. Jakarta is the capital city. The Jakarta metropolitan area has a population of around 30 million people.
  2. Special Region of Yogyakarta, has sultan Hamengkubuwono as hereditary Governor and Paku Alam as hereditary vice-governor.
  3. Aceh, for the use of sharia law as the regional law of the province. It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the hadith.

The country is so diverse and so large! I am glad that our God does not change with each new year. He is still able to use regular people to do his work.

Pray & Praise

  • Pray that the needed money will be raised for the building of the Center for World Evangelism 
  • Praise God for safety as we drove through a storm this week!
  • Pray for us as we are planning our future move to Indonesia (Visas, tickets, housing, furnishings, car and schooling for our kids)
