After almost two years, I'm ready to share my journey again. Join me...

Tuesday, July 20, 2004

It's been almost two years since I've been here, it is about time to get back...it has been a long journey.
 
I have searched, I have struggled, been defeated, received grace and now feel that I'm able to take the first new steps.
 
I'm writing from Jakarta where I'll be for the next few weeks. I with friends who are developing a new way to empower young people. I'm learning with them.
 
The day I arrived the reality of being a Christian here hit me as the front page of the Jakarta Post reported the murder of Susianti Tinulele a 29 year old female Presbyterian pastor as she preached her Sunday sermon. She was the second pastor killed in the last four months and the 17th. Christian killed since August in Poso, Sulawesi.
