Greetings, dear saints. I have not been able to post anything until now due to spotty Internet service. Please pardon my silence. Thanks so much for your prayers. The trip has been remarkably smooth in every way. I have been able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. I continue to be amazed at all that God is doing in Asia, but the needs are still overwhelming. Jakarta has a population of 10 million plus. The vast majority are nominally Muslim, but secular materialism is rising. The “Christian” west has been much more effective in planting malls full of designer shops than planting churches. The conference wraps up tomorrow. I am staying on for a post-conference workshop on discipleship, then flying out Saturday evening – Saturday morning for you all. The first leg of the trip will be 12 hours to Istanbul. Then after a 7-hour layover another 11 hour flight to Chicago. Lord willing, I should touch down in Lexington about 11 AM on Monday. Thank you again for your prayers. See you soon.
