Friends & Family,

As we set aside special time this month to celebrate those we love, I’m reminded of the love of the Father for us. The love of the Father is so powerful that he sent His Son to die for us even though we didn’t deserve it. This topic is in our thoughts and on our lips on a daily basis here in Indonesia.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to travel with a team to the Maluku Islands to work among the Unreached People Groups there. Our primary goal was to bring the gospel to a village of 38 families out in the jungle. The believers in the more populated areas have been praying for this village with the hope of planting a church and setting up a pastor to shepherd the people (to find out more, you can follow the link below).

On Sunday, we visited churches in Ambon City, the biggest city in the Maluku Islands. I preached a message of God’s love for the lost. Just like the story of the Prodigal Son, the Father is waiting for his children with open arms. The Gospel is powerful, the love of the Father is powerful. But as we see in Romans 10:14-15, “How will they believe in whom they have not heard?” If no one tells them their real Father is waiting for them with open arms, they will never know how to get home. This is our passion and why we do what we do.

Together we are fulfilling the Great Commission and helping the lost find their way home.
