Julio lives on the plains of South Buntalo, home to approximately 1,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and corrugated iron roofs. The primary ethnic groups are Mongondow and Sangihe.

The regional diet consists of fish and rice. A common health problem in this area is malaria. Most adults in South Buntalo work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $174 per month. This community has electricity but needs skills training and improved incomes.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Emaus Student Center to provide Julio with Bible teaching, nutritious food, medical checkups, recreational activities, skills training and tutoring. The center staff will also provide meetings for the parents or guardians of Julio.
Indonesia consists of 17,000 islands along the equator between Australia and Asia. The larger islands have central mountain ranges and fertile plains and lowlands. The climate is tropical with a rainy season from October to April.

The country squeezes a population nearly the size of the United States into a landmass roughly triple the size of Texas; it has the fourth largest population in the world. Indonesia is also a diverse nation with many resources. More than 300 languages are spoken but the most common is Bahasa Indonesia. Islam claims 90 percent of Indonesians; however, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and animism are also practiced.

When Columbus sailed from Spain in 1492, he sought a new route to the Spice Islands of Indonesia. The Portuguese arrived in the sixteenth century but in 1602 the Dutch began slowly gaining control of the islands. Following Japanese occupation during World War II, the country, led by Sukarno, proclaimed independence in 1945. Suharto ousted Sukarno in 1967 and held the presidency of the military-controlled republic until 1998, when a collapsing economy fueled riots and demands for reforms. In 2001, the country elected a female leader, President Megawati Sukarnoputri.
