This new congregation on Lembeh Island in Eastern Indonesia is an example of the many churches around the world that are springing up as a result of your support of Global Mission. For years the Adventist Church struggled to establish a small group on this island. Then last November a Global Mission pioneer arrived here and started meeting people in the community and holding health seminars. Eventually he held an evangelistic series. Today a group of 26 people meet each Sabbath in this simple structure. Plans are underway to build a more permanent building in the future. Please keep this church in your prayers.
