Gabriel lives on the plains of Desa Loa Duri Ulu, home to approximately 6,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of wood and have tin roofs. The primary ethnic groups are Toraja, Dayak and Javanese.

The regional diet consists of bananas, chicken, fish, beef, plantains and rice. Common health problems in this area include dengue fever and bronchitis. Most adults in Desa Loa Duri Ulu work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $166 per month. This community needs clean water, libraries, employment opportunities and recreation facilities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Kasih Ibu Student Center to provide Gabriel with Bible studies, sports, nutritious food, medical checkups, opportunities to visit sick children and academic support. The center staff will also provide counseling and opportunities to worship for the parents or guardians of Gabriel.
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.
