26 Jul Opening of doors in the right season
Praise be to God, whose power has never failed. In May, the local government invited AsiaCMS’s Indonesian partner agency to meet to discuss a new project. This time God was opening two projects for us, one in central Jakarta and another in East Jakarta.
Thanks be to God for giving us new energy to work on these two projects after Idilfitri, the new year celebration after fasting.
One exciting event in June was a project with the marginal people in Ranca Buaya (Tangerang, outside Jakarta). We’ve been carrying out some activities to empower children and women for education and economic development.
During Ramadhan, God opened the way for us to collaborate with Woman Fellowship from 12 churches in Jakarta to hold a bazaar for 1,000 families.
The local leader in Rawa Buaya responded with a joyful heart because we as Christians can emphatise with those who are in need during this special month. May the Holy Spirit continue to reveal himself to them from time to time.
We praise God for his blessing that this Indonesian agency has been entrusted by the government to manage two low-cost housing programmes for the poor in West and East Jakarta.
Please pray that the Lord will provide us with his strength and wisdom to make a success of these projects. – RP, AsiaCMS co-mission partner, Jakarta
