Lately visitors have comprised about one-third of the adult attendants at the Indonesian Protestant Church. They have come either by invitations from members or through some diaconal ministries which the church provided for them. Many of these visitors have continued to come regularly. Please pray as the people of nearby Emmanuel Chapel minister to various needs and circumstances. Pray that these visitors will find the congregation to be a place where they feel genuinely loved and embraced and where they can grow in Christ.
Pastor Philip Dharmawirya is encouraged by how much more connected in general the people in the congregation have become and asks us to pray that God’s love and truth will be the basis of this unity.

Please pray that the Lord will comfort and provide relief for those who are currently experiencing hardships.
