How We Began
How We Began
I was born and raised in Chennai, India. In 1985, I moved to Buffalo, New York, for graduate studies. My wife, Bee, and I married in 1990 and had 4 children. We moved to Indonesia in 2014. It was at our church in Jakarta that we were first exposed to the refugee ministry. Now, 5 years later, we are still working with refugees in many different areas such as education, business enterprises, Bible studies, crafts, etc. We are privileged to join God in what He is doing amongst us in Indonesia. He has brought people from many countries that are traditionally closed to missionaries so that we have a chance to reflect the light and love of Christ to them during their stay in Indonesia. We are thankful to the Lord for this opportunity.
I was born and raised in Malaysia. After graduating from high school in 1982, I left to further my studies in the US. I got married and lived in the US until we moved to Indonesia. My husband, David, and I started this ministry by bringing up to 70 refugees at a time into our home. I was able to cook for these refugees every time they visited. Currently, I get to use my education degree and organizational skills in leading the learning center and kids program. It is a privilege to be able to serve these children and their families during their time of waiting. With God's help, we hope that we can educate these children so that their transition to a third country will be smoother.
