Aheng currently serves with his wife, Tinah, and their two children in Indonesia. He became a follower of Jesus after hearing the Gospel preached by American missionaries in 1975. At this gathering he realized Jesus was a real person and that God loves everyone, including him. The idea that he is now God’s child motivates Aheng in his ministry efforts. He pursued ministerial education and received a degree from the Berita Hidup seminary. Today Aheng serves the people of Indonesia by encouraging fellow believers, planting new churches, and teaching others.

Indonesia is a predominately Muslim country in Southeast Asia. Many work as farmers, but due to the uncertain climate it’s difficult for them to maintain their crops. Other common occupations include construction workers, freelancers, and house cleaners. Many of the families are poor and do not have the funds to pay for medical treatment. Multiple families have to live together in the same house a lot of the time. Many parents lack a formal education and get married young. Domestic violence is also prominent and husbands are prone to leave their families.
