2023 Year End Report
Greetings from Ottawa, Canada! I hope you had a blessed Christmas. For Esther and myself, this was our first Christmas season in Canada since 2011 and the first one ever for Benjamin. We are so thankful to visit family and friends in Alberta, Niagara Falls, Toronto and in Ottawa where we spent most of our time. We also got a chance to visit and minister in Churches. We had some powerful and memorable times with God’s people in Canada! And witnessing God manifest similar miracles to those we’ve seen in Indonesia was truly amazing.
This year has been an incredible year for us. The Lord has opened doors for us to continue to do work among unreached tribes in Indonesia. Our weekly house fellowship is growing. We now have a full worship band that ministers with us in our gospel campaigns. Two months prior to our departure for Canada, we conducted four gospel campaigns with our ministry team, culminating in a three-night gospel campaign in the province of Aceh, Indonesia.
Originally planned for Central Java, the gospel campaign faced hurdles in securing permits, leading us to swiftly relocate to Aceh. Despite challenges, such as physical assaults on our team members and a power generator failure on the opening night, many still gathered at the festival field to hear the gospel and witness miracles. A more detailed report on Aceh is available at the link below.
Well, our time in Canada is almost over. We are returning back to Indonesia on January 9th. It has been such a wonderful visit for us. As we approach the end of this year, we want to convey our deepest gratitude to God for His many blessings in our lives. We eagerly anticipate the coming year, believing for further progress in spreading the gospel in Indonesia. Thank you for your prayers and partnership. By the grace of God, we are together making a difference for the Kingdom of God.
Happy New Year to you and all your loved ones!
In His service,
Gola, Esther & Ben
