short term indonesia trip
reaching the remnant: mission trip to Makassar
Over the Christmas holiday break, Eastside is sending a team to support a missionary family, the Luthys, in Makassar, Indonesia. As schools and colleges close down during this period, much of the community returns to their villages while expatriate missionaries return to their home countries. This leaves behind a remnant, including the poorest students who cannot afford to return home and the missionary families who choose to stay on.
As part of the mission trip, the team will focus on this remnant community, providing:
- A holiday program for the missionary families
- English classes for students from the local colleges
- A daily meal for 40-60 students who otherwise go hungry across much of the break.
keen to make a donation?
We are raising funds to cover the daily meals for these students as well as to help the team cover some travel costs. Any donation you can provide is greatly appreciated!
