In October, a team of four from FGA Singapore went to Surabaya to visit our church plant. In the five days that we were there, we had the opportuity to teach some of our “Being Rooted” syllabus, train some new leaders who can assist Ps Dodi with his ministry to university students and pray for and minister to the congregation.
The previous trip to Surabaya, we had contact with about 14 young people but this time, we met with and spoke to about 25-30 students each day.
After meeting include a delicious dinner home-cooked by Ps Dodi’s wife, Leni. The students also appreciated having a healthy homecooked meal, and we had a good time of fellowship before each session.
Douglas Choo had the opportunity to train 10 potential leaders on how to study the word and the cost of discipleship”. He shared Luke 9:57-62 ad talked about counting the cost and what total devotion and commitment to Christ looked like. At the end of the session, we had a pledge of commitment to serve Christ.
He also preached on Sunday. The total attendance was 35 people. After the service we had lunch together. In the afternoon we broke the group into males and females. Nalinee and Pat ministered to the ladies and SK Charles and Douglas ministered to the males.
Next year, we hope to be able to bring some of our other programmes like Know Your Shape, the GABS process and how to run life groups. If you want to be a part of the next trip in January, contact Douglas Choo at the church office.
