Practical Support Gives Sulawesi Hope

Tuesday, 2 April 2019

Students who study at the Christian Church Theological School of Indonesia (CCTSI) dedicate their lives to serving the Lord and to impact the lives of others. On weekends, studentstravel to villages where they can assist local churches and build relationships with local people who desperately need to hear what Jesus has done for them. So when the earthquake and tsunami hit the Palu area of Central Sulawesi in September 2018, CCTSI students and alumni were quick to take up the opportunity to participate in the local relief efforts. They helped the community clean up debris, joined with government volunteers and aid agencies to bring food, LPG, stoves, blankets and books, as well as assist building temporary shelters. Students helped to provide counseling and trauma healing, addressing health concerns, and ministered to children and parents. CCTSI also sent in some water tanks for clean water supply. Hery Susanto, CCTSI Academic Dean said, “It will take years for life to return to normal after such a disaster, but at least we could help, even in small ways to share God's love to those who had suffered so much.”
