Placing the First Stone
As we enter the 9th month of 2023, good news is coming from Indonesia, specifically from Sangihe Regency, North Sulawesi Province. In September, the groundbreaking ceremony for the IFGF Lebo manse took place in Kab. Sangihe Islands. This event was led by Pastor Timothy Dolonseda, who also serves as the pastor of IFGF Lebo. I am grateful for God’s love that made this possible and pray that the construction process can run smoothly so that it can be used effectively to facilitate the services of God’s church.
Then, on the following day, September 10, 2023, a church building inauguration service was held in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, at IFGF Lolak. After over a year, IFGF Lolak and its pastor, Pastor Maxi Mailoor S.Th, are finally ready to worship in the new church building. This was made possible thanks to God through a generous donation from Deacon Kim, USA, who has had a lifelong desire to build a church! Praise the Lord! Soli Deo Gloria!
In the following month, on October 9, 2023, the foundation stone was laid at IFGF Kuma Village, Sangihe Regency, Indonesia. This event was attended by the sub-district head and servants of God from various church denominations. Let us pray that the construction progresses smoothly and that everything needed is sufficient to complete the IFGF Kuma Village church building on time. We hope that in the future, the church building can be used to serve souls even better, and that more people will come to know God’s love through IFGF Kuma Village.
Let us be thankful for every gift He has given to His church. Pray that what has been started and completed will continue to serve souls diligently for the glory of His name.”
For where two or three gather in my name,– Matthew 18:20 (NIV) –
there am I with them.”
