Leadership is living God’s vision and inspiring others to live it.
the largest unevangelized island on earth
The following article was written by MTM guest teacher, Bro. Samuel Bucher, from Palmer, Alaska:
Arriving in Indonesia, we deeply felt our dependency on God as we experienced city life, strange languages, dangerous traffic patterns. The cultural differences from America was amazing.
Our coordinator, Richard, did an excellent job, planning ministry events, being interpreter, provider of transportation, exchanging currency, and many other roles, including being a delightful Christian Brother.
Brother Samuel Bucher passionately delivered “Rules for Godliness” to the Bible School.
Edward, another gracious, sincere brother assisted us as interpreter, and was also a very helpful Brother in many ways.
Two days included teaching at a Bible College on the topic “Rules for Godliness”, and “Servant Leadership” and in the afternoon we participated in teaching English at a language learning center.
We made home visits to the elderly and sick to pray with them and be an encouragement, as well as attending a Bible Study and Prayer meeting Wednesday and Thursday evening, contributing, as requested, to the services.
Several other evenings we participated in the Servant Leadership conference, and I taught on “Lessons from the Book of Philippians.”
We had the opportunity to go to another school and teach Servant Leadership to a group of teachers. We also made a visit to a sick elder in the hospital to pray for him and to seek his encouragement.
My son, Isaiah, gave testimony and devotionals from the Word, as requested and also helped at the language learning center.
Black tea plantations stretch from hill to hill and are a tourist attraction. The MTM team thanks all of you for standing with us in the fields of harvest.
Sightseeing was interspersed throughout the week.
I believe a great open door of opportunity is before the believers of Indonesia, and I desire to continue to pray and give myself to help them serve the Lord Jesus and advance the Kingdom of God.
I am grateful that God directed MTM to invite me as guest teacher. I am grateful to Merle and Judy for “shepherding” us through the experience. I am grateful for the financial support, thoughts and prayers on our behalf for this ministry trip.
Editors note: A big thank you from MTM to Samuel and Isaiah Bucher along with their Alaskan Brethren for supporting these Indonesian Leadership Conferences. May God’s blessings rest on all of you who partner with MTM to inspire and equip native church leaders to reach their own unreached for Christ.
