Thank you to everyone who gave through PresAID to make this possible. Robert writes “This Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Timor Leste was born about 6 years ago. We are now formally “partners” – and what a privilege. About 12 elders and ministers of the IEPTL arrived on buses, motor-bikes and cars at the new church site for a day long discussion on issues relating to this 6 year partnership.
Firstly we toured the new buildings, as yet unfinished, but targeted for completion at the end of November. Church building. Multi-purpose building. Pastor’s home with enough room for accommodation of others. All very impressive. The church building will comfortably seat about 400 to 450. Opening date is 13th December, with our own Moderator General as the guest speaker. All very exciting! Now for the long-long and productive discussion using English, Indonesian and Tetun . . a couple of people being the translators. . . . .”
