Two parties were held in a poor slum in Indonesia which we cannot
name for security reasons. Neither can we publicly thank the
organisers for the same security reasons as we do not wish to offend
leaders and followers of the majority religion.
We invited lots of young people to the parties as they are the hope
of the future.
Our partner wrote this, "The first Christmas party was so wonderful
although it rained hard and long, but it was a great event that
people would not miss. The house became too small for 120 adults and
70 children with their mothers. It was was hard to move. The adults
were inside and the kids were outside, so everybody enjoyed what
they needed. The kids were so happy with a tremendous puppet show
and each one of them received a Christmas gift and the best
Christmas present ever, Jesus Christ to be their Lord and friend.
Inside we explained the Christmas message to the parents and for
many of them were led to find Christ. That's what Christmas is all
about, God wants to be found.
The second Christmas party also ran so very well with about 140
youngsters coming. Most of these youngsters are from poor families
living in slums around an international airport, what a contrast!
The whole party was filled with dancing, food and gifts, music and
drama, and Christmas message.
They were so energetic and responsive to the news of God's gift of
Jesus and we found many broken and contrite hearts given to Jesus,
which was so beautiful because these were young people who still
have a long journey in their lives."
