Intan makes her home with her father and her mother. Caring for children, running errands and cleaning are her household duties. Her father is sometimes employed as a farmer and her mother maintains the home. There are 3 children in the family.

For fun, Intan enjoys playing with dolls, hide-and-seek and running. She attends church activities regularly and is in primary school where her performance is average.

Your love and support will help Intan to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
Intan lives in the hillside community of Besmarak, home to approximately 800 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, bamboo walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group is Helong.

The regional diet consists of rice. Common health problems in this area include dengue fever, malaria and digestive illnesses. Most adults in Besmarak work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $68 per month. This community has electricity and water wells but needs employment opportunities, vocational training, scholastic materials and adult literacy programs.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of MDC Besmarak Student Center to provide Intan with Bible studies, medical checkups, sports, supplemental food, health education, leadership training, character building programs, reading and writing classes and computer courses. The center staff will also provide meetings for the parents or guardians of Intan.
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 700 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 1968 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.
