Indonesia, ReachAcross - Sharon Vidito
I have been blessed to be a part of the ReachAcross ministry in Indonesia this past February. Our team of nine people from across Canada were able to travel to Batam Island to work in an orphanage of 45 children, a new Christian school with 285 students and at a church on a small island of 45 families. The conditions in this third world country were grim and the persecution of Christians included the government denying them of the basic essentials of clean water, electricity and education. But even in the poverty, these children and adults praised God for our help and to know that Canadians were praying for them! The team was able to share testimony, witness to unbelievers and provided generators, beds, lighting and best of all LOVE to these wonderful people.
