Reaching Taebone, Indonesia With
the Hope of Christ

“The church has to reach beyond the altar.” That’s Fran’s mission. He’s the pastor of a church in Taebone, a rural Indonesian village. Resources are scarce. So is hope.

The local church is the greatest hope for children in poverty. It’s the Body of Christ in out-of-the-way places like Taebone. And where Christ is present, so is hope.

Fran knew for years that Compassion could make a tremendous difference in Taebone. So he saw it as a miracle when Compassion opened a center in his church. And after just a few short months, 100 students are now registered in the program. Fran is working with his Compassion partnership facilitator to identify the community’s most urgent needs.

In addition to meeting specific community needs, Compassion provides a baseline program for each registered child involving medical care, education, child safety protocols, removal of obstacles hindering development and more. But above all, every child in the program hears the good news of what Christ did for them on the cross.

Ending poverty always begins with hope. And because of givers like you, the light of Christ’s hope is shining in places like Taebone. You’ve helped lay the groundwork for years of gospel work in the places that need it most.
