Tawangmangu students branch out
EACH YEAR our second and third year students do 10 weeks of practical training in various churches and in social ministries. This year we sent two young ladies, Lenny and Sartje, to help out at an Indonesian church in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the small congregations were young people who are working as maids or in factories in the region. Malaysia has a law that one cannot proselyte the Malays but Indonesians of course would not be under that law. So it’s a great opportunity to reach out to the Indonesian youth who are in Malaysia and away from their families. They are free to choose. Lenny and Sartje gave Bible studies, preached, witnessed and also visited and ministered to the very primitive Jayahi tribe of Malaysia. Praise God some of these people have received Christ into their lives. Lenny and Sartje have just begun their fourth and final year at Tawangmangu Bible College.
Sam and Carol are based in West Kalimantan, Indonesia where they are principals of Tawangmangu Bible College, and also founders and directors of the Mt Hope Training Centre.
Sam was trained in an AOG Bible school in Ambon before branching out as a church planter and later as an evangelist. Sam & Carol married in 1972 and have four children and six grandchildren.
