Greetings in the Lord! We hope and pray you are well and blessed in Him. Over the last month, we have been on missions in Indonesia, East Timor and Malaysia. Most recently, we were on the islands of Borneo and Sulawesi where we encountered thick jungles and unique tribal practices. In one such place (Sulawesi) we encountered a people group who hold funerals in high esteem and conduct elaborate exhumation celebrations of dead ancestors. They do this by taking the dead bodies out of the rock hewn tombs and dress the corpses in new clothes while sitting and talking with them. A large amount of bulls and pigs will be slaughtered during the multiday funeral process while songs and dances are performed. It is a strange practice and one that yields a lot of fear of evil spirits. As we minister in areas like these we need your support in prayers, for it opens doors and makes hearts ready. After our journeys in Indonesia we will be undertaking expeditions in Tibet and Central Asia and we are expecting great opportunities to share Christ Jesus. If Travel the Road has blessed you, then please consider supporting the missions ahead through a monthly or one-time gift. We need your help and together we can bring the name of Jesus to every tribe, tongue and nation.
This month, we would like to share a message called — Hard Work.
