Matthew, Kali, Laurel, Eleanor, and Caroline serve in Medan, Indonesia with LCMS International. Matthew supports The Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church (GKLI), by mentoring pastors, providing continuing education, and overseeing translation projects.

Much Appreciated Support

Our reconnecting has brought us to 11 congregations, six cities, and four states. There's a lot that's different, but support for the Lord's work in Indonesia remains strong. In this issue of The S.E.A. Side we reflect a bit on our travel, plans for our travel through Taiwan, and, as always, provide a hand full on new pictures.
