Indonesian Missions Silently Expands

Feb 18, 2003 06:54 PM EST

Missions Organization “Walk Through the Bible” projects growth in their Indonesian missions project. Terry Sparks of WTB said they feared their project had failed because they had no communications with their Indonesian team members since before October. However, upon return from a recent visit, Sparks says, "I found out not only are we not losing it, but it's now expanded to 21 cities in Indonesia. The leadership there is saying that 'even though you can't go as Americans, now is the time to minister in Indonesia, because people are really hungry for this material." Sparks acknowledges concerns for the believers in Indonesia. "I would just ask for people to pray for their protection, and for a boldness and a wisdom that they would be wise as serpents, harmless as doves...in other words, that they wouldn't bring any unnecessary attention to themselves, but at the same time, that they would speak for the Lord whenever they have the opportunity."
