Ministry to the people of Indonesia

First Love International in Indonesia


Indonesia is a vast equatorial archipelago of 17,000 islands (6,000 inhabited) extending 3,200 miles east to west, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans in Southeast Asia.  Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation, and 86% Muslim making it the largest Islamic country.

Since Indonesia is a country that is highly restricted on traditional strategies for spreading the gospel, First Love is unable to name our workers who are serving in this very needful land for security reasons.  At the present time the work within this country will be centered around the idea of “presence.”
