It was good to be with the assembly at Citra Raya and continue in fellowship with them teaching the scriptures. The recent terrorism in Jakarta has had no impact on the assembly as the city is so large and the population so great that these events could have taken place in a different country as far as they were concerned.
The assembly continues to grow numerically with some new families in attendance at the meetings. It is a real joy to see the children and young folk doing well and despite the usual issues facing assemblies all over the world there is no extreme problems facing them presently.
I was very happy to hear that two of my old friends are getting married this year. That means all of the original young men I met some years ago are now going to be married. The Lord has been gracious and faithful to them.
They are continuing the work of renovating a new building as they have outgrown their existing meeting place. They have managed to buy the new building without selling the existing one. They hope to use both for the Lord's work in outreach and helping poor members of the assembly with accommodation needs.
