God's Gifts in Worship

We have been in Medan for two months. Our language acquisition is coming along nicely and we continue to settle into our new lives here. Much more exciting than the day to day of our lives is how we see God working in Indonesia! On Pentecost Sunday a GKLI congregation baptized 19 new Christians, 13 adults and six children! We also had opportunity to make progress with the GKLI on their new hymnal. For years they have been desiring and asking for help with a new hymnal in Indonesian. In June we got to spend a week working and learning about the substance and traditions of Christian worship. Read more in the newsletter by clicking the button below.

  • For continued blessings of a healthy pregnancy and a safe and healthy birth
  • For the GKLI, especially that the Lord would bless their relationship with the Sanak people..

We Still Need You
