When GARBC International Ministries learned that Spring Water Baptist Church in Daegu, South Korea, wanted to support pastors of other associations, Director Chris Hindal connected its pastor, Choi Dong Kwon, to Team Sumatra. Team Sumatra is a group of five professionals who are planting churches in Indonesia.
Dr. Andreas Andoko, a member of Team Sumatra, introduced the Korean pastor to Pastor Pamuji, who leads a Baptist church in Indonesia with about 30 members. Pastor Pamuji, 49 years old, converted to Christianity from Islam and does not know English. He sends the Korean church news about his ministry written in Indonesian, and Pastor Choi Dong Kwon uses Google to translate it into English.
Spring Water Baptist Church plans to support Pastor Pamuji’s church for two years.
