It is with great joy and jubilation that we are able to share with you some wonderful news. After almost six years of prayer - God has answered our prayer of making our home church legal.
It's official...the International Church in Kota Baru has its government paperwork! Now for phase two: A church board, governance, finances, full time pastor (s), building, etc, etc, etc...He is building this flock through so many here now and over the last 5-6 years here...thank you for worshiping with us and building "The CommUNITY"!
As we sat in the service at a church in Jakarta, Paula kept fighting back tears. As we walked out we looked at each other in sheer amazement of how big our God is! All legal channels were blocked in this community - but the love and care of an Indonesian church hours away has enabled us to be a legal English speaking church in Bandung.
Let us say that again - An INDONESIAN church in Indonesia has now legally planted an ENGLISH church for expats. It is ironic how it works. We came all of this way to be missionaries - and the local church is ministering and serving us.
Join us in prayers and songs of thanksgiving!
Blessings in Christ!
