It’s been a while since I have posted something on my blog; therefore I wanted to post a quick entry.
I am in Singapore’s Changi Airport waiting for my flight back to Jakarta. It has been good to just catch my breath in light of the six-day whirlwind trip back to the States. Even though I wished my trip was longer, God allowed me to accomplish everything I needed to in such a short amount of time.
It was encouraging to see people in all the HMCC churches. It is always a joy to see familiar faces and to just reconnect with people. Also, I was thrilled to meet some new people who have been coming out to our churches. Some of them have just recently accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. This reassured me that our members have been reaching out to people and sharing the Gospel. It was a blessing to see.
I also had many opportunities to share what was happening in Indonesia. After awhile, I felt like a broken record repeating things over and over again, but I was blessed to see that so many people were interested in what God was doing in Jakarta. It just reminded me that this church plant is really a partnership. I am thankful for all the people that have been praying for us and financially supporting us.
The best part was spending some time with the site pastors. Whether it was over a meal or sharing some coffee, it was great just hearing all that God is doing in their lives and in all our churches.
I am praying that all the churches will reach the next level.
Even though it has only been four months since I left for Indonesia, as I went to all the locations, it felt as if I never left. Thanks to all the sites for their hospitality and prayers.
