Cody began this school year at a local Christian School. He quickly adjusted to the social aspects with no language barrier at all. He loved it! After 9 weeks or so it became evident that Cody was not learning as he should. This was according to his own admission as well as our observations. As the principle so aptly put it, “The atmosphere of the school is not condusive for Cody to learn.” Because of this Cheryl has started homeschooling him again, along with Cheyenne. He is happy and we are glad to have him home again. We are thankful that his 8th grade books never sold. God knew we would still need them. He sure looked handsome in his uniform though!

Ministry at MTC- Missionary Training Center
This week marks 16 years of ministry for us here in Indonesia. November 3rd, 1993 we arrived in the capital city, Jakarta. After a few days of adjusting and meeting various people we flew to our next destination. On November 7th we landed at our present location, which has become our “home” away from home for all these years.
We are full swing into the 2nd 9 week session of the “Autumn” semester. This time I (Craig) am teaching the Gospel of John to our 1st year students, James to our 3rd semester students and NT Church Principles to our 1st year Missions class. This is a total of 42 students, each at different levels of the training.
Each Wednesday Cheryl and I lead a small group of students in our discipleship class. On Fridays one of our staff guys is teaching on the family. All 42 students and 21 staff attend. On Wednesdays we go over the same lesson to help cement it. This give folks more opportunities for input and feedback.
Sports are a regular part of our week. Most times its an “internal’ thing with staff and students playing together. From time to time the teams don uniforms and play against outside teams in “friendly matches”. The ladies play soccer on Wednesdays and volleyball on Monday and Friday. This gives everyone some stress relief and just some good ole sweat and excersise.
Thank you for partnering with us in expanding the reach of the gospel. We are a team working together.
