A Heart for Evangelism

By Lorrie Fransworth, serving in Indonesia

The following is an adaptation of a recent prayer letter from Lorrie Fransworth, who serves in Indonesia through higher education ministries. Read about the impact that one of her former theology students is having for God’s Kingdom in Indonesia.

Barnabas served as my gardener while attending the Walter Post Bible School and later as a student at the STT (Theological College) in Nabire. After graduating from STT, he moved to Bugalaga where he serves as principal of the Bible school there. Barnabas has a real heart for evangelism and has clearly been gifted in that area. He has traveled to eight unevangelized valleys to survey the need for evangelism. 

On holidays and during school vacations, Barnabas takes a team of students to these areas to conduct evangelism campaigns. In the past year, nine new evangelism posts have been started as a result of these efforts. Every Friday Barnabas preaches in one of these places, and many people from other villages gather to hear the gospel. 

Between November 2008 and February 2009, 16 new believers in Christ were baptized through this ministry. In one village where there are no believers yet, the people have been listening to the Word and have asked for a pastor. Sixty people have purchased Bibles, and 86 young people participate in the youth meetings there.
