From Associate Priest and Missionary to Jakarta, Indonesia, Father James Long
Mission House Ministries!
We are thrilled to introduce our new ministry locations, Hope House in North Jakarta and Providence Place in West Jakarta! In just the past two months, God has graciously made a way for Providence Anglican Church to participate in the renting, refurbishing, and running of two ministry houses. It is a big responsibility, but we believe that God also has a big plan to use these for His glory in Indonesia. We finally have a place to partner with like-minded ministries such as a daycare for under served children and a school for the differently-abled. We will also offer language and vocational training for refugees, community outreach and evangelism groups, as well as Sunday “Kingdom Classes.” We hope the following pictures give you a sense of the love and hard work our team has put into the transformation of these spaces.
|This is an exciting time for our ministry, but we are not doing this on our own! The name of our mission organization, Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders, speaks volumes. Missionaries cannot go without senders – partners who share the vision and value the call. Our call is to be His hands and feet in the capital city of the world’s largest Muslim nation! We are incredibly humbled by and grateful for the outpouring of gifts and spiritual care from our family and friends. As we follow where God leads, we have two immediate needs. Firstly, we need prayer for protection, provision, wisdom, and mercy. We hope that everyone we know and every church that is connected with us, will pray for us on a regular basis. Secondly, we need an abundance of senders. In order to stay long term on the mission field in Jakarta with our family of six, we need to raise $4,500 in monthly support. We know you are thinking it will take a miracle and it will… but that is the beauty of it. God gets all the glory as we watch Him do what only He can! In fact, generous partners have already committed to 25% of our total support!

|We are honored to be on this journey with such faithful friends, who lift us up through encouraging words, powerful prayer, and open hearts for the stories and news that we share.
” For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Ephesians 3: 14-21
With much love,
Jim, Nanci, Anna, George, Mary, and Della
