Why did they take the risk?

One of the far northern islands of Indonesia had some refugees show up on boats. The people were from Myanmar and are called the Rohingya people. The Indonesian government strictly refused to offer aid and forbid anyone from receiving them. They cited the concerns of Covid-19 being spread into that part of Indonesia. 

Many of the citizens refused to obey the government and went to help. They risked catching the virus to help these people. They risked getting in trouble with the government.

My thought goes to the spiritual need of these people. Some people will spend their entire lives trying to help the physical well being of others. We need more Christians to spend their lives to help the spiritual well being of others. Please pray for more laborers to serve in the field of Indonesia! 

Here is the original news article.

Thank you for praying for our pastor!

Our pastor, Austin Gardner, is recovering well at home now. God has really worked a great miracle in bringing him through a long stay in the hospital. Please continue to pray for his complete recovery. Elizabeth and I really enjoyed being able to go and see him for a short visit this week.

Pray and Praise 

Our family was blessed to be a part of our home church’s Mission Conference as well. We miss them as we are on the road, but it was wonderful to spend some extra time with them all. God is doing a great work in and through our church. There are two meetings that I wanted to let you all know about. More info can be found at the links below. Also, feel free to contact me with any questions.

We were in two churches this past week. It is great to be back to meetings in person.

Prayer Requests: 

  • Pray for pastors as they lead their churches during this time.
