Yesa lives with his grandfather and his mother. His duties at home include making beds and cleaning. There are 2 children in the family. His grandfather is employed and his mother is employed as a laborer.

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

Your love and support will help Yesa to receive the assistance he needs to develop his potential. Please pray for him.
Yesa lives on the plains of Nayu Utara, home to approximately 1,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement or tile floors, brick walls and tile roofs. The primary ethnic group is Javanese.

The regional diet consists of beans, cassava, rice and soybeans. Common health problems in this area include diarrhea, dengue fever and typhus. Most adults in Nayu Utara work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $82 per month. This community needs increased salaries and fully equipped school facilities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Kalvari Student Center to provide Yesa with Bible studies, praise and worship, nutritious food, vitamins, sports, health education, field trips, leadership training, English classes and computer courses. The center staff will also provide retreats, family gatherings and fellowship for the parents or guardians of Yesa.
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.
