In her home, Lovy helps by running errands. She lives with her father and her mother. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. There are 2 children in the family.

Lovy is not presently attending school. Singing and playing with dolls are her favorite activities. She also attends church activities regularly.

Your care and consistent sponsorship are especially important to Lovy because she is crippled in one hand. Thank you for your love and prayers.
Lovy lives in the coastal community of Pedungan, home to approximately 13,200 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and zinc roofs. The regional diet consists of rice.

Common health problems in this area include malaria, skin diseases and influenza. Most adults in Pendungan work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $89 per month. This community needs school supplies and employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Samaritania Student Center to provide Lovy with Bible studies, retreats, medical checkups, nutritious food, sports, character building programs, computer courses, English classes and reading and writing instruction. The center staff will also provide meetings, cell groups and seminars for the parents or guardians of Lovy.
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.
