IFGF Ende, Flourishing in the East
IFGF Ende is one of IFGF churches that is located in Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara, in the eastern part of Indonesia. By God’s grace, under the leadership of Ps. Urbanus Steven Sewa, IFGF Ende is expanding its impact. Due to the decreasing Covid-19 cases in the area, IFGF Ende is now able to do its activities on-site.
On Thursday, May 12, IFGF Ende held an evangelism training in a combined iCare. The sole purpose of this training is to equip believers in evangelizing to other people so more people will hear the Gospel.
Then on Sunday, May 15, IFGF Ende started an afternoon service for one of its satellite churches in Nagekeo District. Also known as Nage Keo, Nagekeo District is one of the districts in East Nusa Tenggara. IFGF Ende also has satellite churches in Lembor, Kakor, Manggarai Barat, Labuan Bajo. Mr. Albertus Hande is the coordinator for this area. At this moment, IFGF Ende is praying for a parking area and the Kakor Satellite is specifically praying for building a worship place.
Another activity that recently happened in IFGF Ende was the Ascension Day Service and Fellowship on May 26. The church members were invited for a meal after the service to be able to fellowship with each other.
On 5 p.m. May 29, for the first time after Covid-19 in Indonesia, IFGF Ende held an onsite youth service / YTC. The youths came with lots of excitement and joy as they had been longing to gather with their friends again. Truly, God is good!
As a continuation from the evangelism training in May, IFGF Ende started its evangelism mission in June. On June 5, IFGF Ende went to Toraja in Sulawesi Island. It was an amazing experience to see that the mission trip went well. We believe that God’s grace has surrounded us throughout the trip.
In addition, great news came this June. IFGF Ende has purchased land which will be used for a preschool and a clinic. Isn’t our God amazing?
May every good thing that God has done for and through IFGF Ende continue to grow and bear fruit so more people will know Christ and His love. Amin!
For this is what the Lord has commanded us:-Acts 13:47-
“I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”
