Friends & Family,

Have we got news for you! Since our last update, we have seen God do some incredible things and answer some of the prayers we (and you!) have been praying for a while. We are now wrapping up summer team season and will be moving right into travel season next month. It is amazing how God has set us up for success here; learning and growing through working with the Kemps and countless opportunities through Chi Alpha Jogja! We have a lot to share this month!
The Alpha Course was incredible! All of the students who went through this course now have a deeper understanding of who Jesus is and many of them are so close to putting their faith in him. Every one of them is eager to continue meeting, so our 10 week course will resume in August with more amazing discussions. Please pray that God would lead us to the material that will have the biggest impact in their hearts!
My hands down favorite moment during our Alpha Course was when we talked about healing. One of our students, is a runner who had been having some pain in his leg. We prayed for him in the name of Jesus and he was instantly healed! Praise God!
Our (and your!) prayers have been answered! Almost a year after moving to Indonesia, we finally got our long-term Visas. And it couldn’t have come at a better time...
That’s right, maybe a week after we got our Visas, 10 agents from immigration showed up at our house with flashlights and video cameras to check our paperwork at 8:30 pm! We’re not sure if someone tried to report us or if it was an attempt at extortion. It was a bit overwhelming, but once they saw we had our long-term Visas they realized there was no issue. Then, almost with disappointment, they said it was just a routine check…at 8:30 at night! Haha! Praise God for taking care of us! I made them take a picture with me afterward and half of them walked away.
Summer at Chi Alpha Jogja is a whirlwind of teams coming and going. As a member of the Chi Alpha staff, we get to host some of the teams as they invest in the ministry and outreach here. It’s incredible to see the impact a team can make as they spend time praying on campuses and meeting new students. Each week at our Friday night outreach, we are splitting at the seams from the inflow of new faces who now have the opportunity to get plugged into our community.
What an incredible season we are in! God is doing amazing things here because of your heart for the nations, because of your support and because of your prayers. Please take a minute to review our list of specific prayer needs below. We are eternally grateful for you!
