A Brief Note from the Far Side of the World


Well, here I am in Jakarta, Indonesia, having meaningful access to a computer for the first time in several days. I am in Jakarta visiting my brother and his family, and recuperating a bit from a fascinating and insightful trip through parts of Cambodia, where Bethel Church has an important partnership with some very strategically placed missionaries who are really making a difference for God’s kingdom.

Here in a few days I will unfold a bit of the details and observations regarding that journey. Suffice it say, the people with whom we worked in Cambodia are a beautiful people who are desperately needing a Savior. Theirs is a nation that has been through so much (like the regime of the Khmer Rouge), and now by God’s grace there is a great window for spiritual birth.

In the meantime, I am soaking in the sights and sounds of Indonesia. My brother and his wonderful family are terrific tour guides, and this is a remarkable country. Again . . . once I settle back into my normal routine, I’ll pass along more. Until then, don’t forget that the Lord Jesus loves you and eagerly relishes being your Savior and Friend.
