It was a blessing to see some of the alumni come out to the airport to see us off to Jakarta. For some reason, I get this feeling that this Jakarta church will go beyond just Ann Arbor people planting it. There are people around the world, who are supporting and praying for what God is doing and what God is going to do through this new church plant.
It was a short trip by plane from Singapore to Jakarta, but the anticipation was building to finally arrive at our destination.
As soon as we landed, we were greeted by people inside the airport who helped us through the immigration line (we felt like a VIP). After getting our luggage, we packed up three cars and headed out to Karawaci.
It was great seeing our alumni.
We dropped off our luggage at the teammates’ apartments and then we headed out to dinner. Since our place does not have furniture, we were not able to move in yet. It was a bit frustrating since we have been living out of a suitcase the last 4-5 days. But this is once again a lesson of trust and dependence on God.
Right now, we are headed out to an international church in Jakarta. Then we will have our first informal meeting with some people who are interested in starting the church with us. The team and I are just excited to get everything started. God is going to do great things.
