Soccer and art are Luther's favorite activities. In primary school his performance is average and he also regularly attends church activities.

Please remember Luther in your prayers. Your love and support will help him to receive the assistance he needs to grow and develop.
Luther lives on the plains of Koya Barat, home to approximately 4,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The regional diet consists of cassava, rice and sago (starch similar to tapioca).

Common health problems in this area include malaria and respiratory illnesses. Most adults in Koya Barat work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $158 per month. This community has electricity and sanitation but needs access to clean water, vocational training, employment opportunities and income-generating skills training.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Kana Student Center to provide Luther with Bible studies, medical checkups, nutritious food, health and hygiene workshops, sports, music classes, tuition, school uniforms, life skills training and scholastic materials. The center staff will also provide worship services, counseling and health and hygiene workshops for the parents or guardians of Luther.
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.
