Yosua was raised in a Christian family but struggled to embrace a relationship with Jesus himself. After graduating from high school, he was directed to study theology. He went to Bible school not because he wanted to, but because he was afraid he could not afford to do anything else. His reasons for studying were quickly changed. “I realized that what was originally my escape was one of God’s plans to bring me to a noble task.” Today Yosua serves as a church planter among the Hindu people in Indonesia. He says his vision is “being a witness and a blessing for people around me”. Pray for Yosua and his wife, Asri, as they serve the Lord.

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.
