Ramadan Ends

This morning we enjoyed the Mission Staff devotional time.  We prayed for the requests presented and for the church planters and for unreached people groups.  Afterwards the staff practiced their English by each reading a verse from an English language Bible followed by the same verse being read in Indonesian.  Warren and David read verses from the Indonesian Bible although they didn't know what they were saying.

After lunch we took a trip to see a volcano.  Although the steam rises from the ground and the air is filled with a strong smell of sulphur, there is no historical record of this volcano erupting.

After 6 pm Ramadan ended and the night air filled with prayers broadcast from every mosque.  The surround sound cacophony will last all night long.


  1. Wonderful to see the pictures! I feel like I am right there with you. Thanks for taking the time to share with us. I hope you can get some rest this evening.

    Love you,Son.

  2. I think that it is just totally amazing that you are able to go to sleep to the sound of people praying what an humbling thought. Just to imagine the peaceful, restful sleep and to revel in the aura of prayers sent to heaven. God calls this a sweet arroma. What Bliss.

  3. Maybe you'll learn a little of the Indonesian language if you keep trying to read their bible. I'm sure you all had a good laugh that sounds like a fun way to lighten up day riddled with time spent in deep concentration and study.
