Indonesia Update

Nothing that exciting to report from the land of Indonesia.  The last few days have been consumed with in house ministry and planning.  Every week I lead staff meeting and am offering some systems coaching to get the team moving forward in some of the areas Open Life does really well at.  Meetings meetings study and meetings.  That sums up the last two days.

Love where the series Mindful has come and can’t wait to bless this church with the next talks in their West and East campuses.

Dana has gone to a Baby Shower and Prayer meeting and is beginning prep to lead some teaching times for 45 minutes each.  She will do great I have no doubt.

Finally today we went and visited an Orphanage in town.  They would not let us take photos, but Dana did snag a video that is way cute.  Everyone played with the babies and toddlers and we had conversation with people who were there contemplating adoption of some of the kids.  As we drove away Jaiden was asking to go back and dreaming of which friends she could take with her.  Humbling to visit orphanages and see the humble supplies, dirty walls and doors.  Kids playing within such minimal environments.  Praying for them and all the others who will venture through the doors of that place.

Below you will find a bit more in the way of photos:

The Orphanage from the outside.  Sure makes it look like they have AC, but they sure didn't have it active when we were in there.
