Indonesia training_inlineFerry Paoki is director of Indonesian Baptist Ministry in Sulut, Indonesia. He sends the following ministry updates.

My vision, based on Psalm 96:2 and 3 and Matthew 28:19 and 20, is, “Proclaim His salvation from day to day among all the peoples and the nations.”

We are promoting the training of leaders for a church-planting movement. The training is church-based, so I have a lot of local churches that are participating.

On Aug. 30 in Kotamobagu, Indonesia, in a ceremonial graduation I gave Leadership Mastery One (LM1) certificates to 96 leaders and pastors. To finish this program, they must have finished 24 subjects from four booklets of First Principles. The first booklet, Becoming a Disciple, has six subjects or topics: (1) the gospel message, based on Acts 10:34–48; (2) baptism, based on Matthew 28:16–20; (3) first principles, based on Colossians 2:6–8; (4) renewing our minds, based on Romans 12:1 and 2; (5) the lifestyle of a disciple, based on Romans 14:1–23; and (6) reshaping our lives.

Today more than 1,000 leaders and pastors joined me in this training of leaders and pastors for church planting. Praising the Lord Jesus.

Next week I will fly to Jakarta and Palangkaraya to train leaders and pastors. I have trained some leaders and pastors in Bali and Papua also. Please pray for my ministry.
