An Update from Zane, Karen, William & Amelia.

NZCMS - Wed, 22/01/2020 - 16:08

For the past 18 months or so, as we’ve been preparing on this journey into full-time mission you’ve known us as “Zane, Karen, William & Amelia – working in SE Asia.” We’re excited to say that is about to change.

One of things that we do continually here is monitor our security status. Due to the level of our security status until now we’ve kept the name of where we are working, and our surname out of print. We haven’t been profiled on the NZCMS website, and the only way to get information about us has been through us.

We are really pleased to say that after a recent security review we are now able to publish what we are doing, and where we’ll be doing it in print. 

So what will change?

You’ll now receive information about our country in our updates. We’ll name the places we are working or visiting. You can feel free to get in touch without worrying about the kind of language you use in terms of Church and faith. We’d still ask you to be sensible about where you post details about our work, and mentioning the majority religion here. 

Be assured that we will always maintain the very best security and safety practices, and follow the advice given to us by NZCMS and our embassy here.

So, what can we tell you?

Probably not much you didn’t know already. We still will be working in Jakarta, the Capital of Indonesia.

Ada gula, ada semut – where there is sugar, there are ants!

This Indonesian proverb sums up Jakarta well. People flock to Jakarta in their millions from every island of the Indonesian Archipelago. Jakarta is where fortunes are made, and better opportunities are sought.

Jakarta is the heart of arts, education, government and commerce. We think it’s an exciting place to be based for the work we are engaged in here.

With a metropolitan population of more than 30 million and rising, Jakarta is one of the world’s largest cities. Known as “the Big Durian” it is the largest city in Southeast Asia, and the commanding urban centre of Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country. It is also an overburdened developing metropolis struggling with problems of overpopulation and inadequate housing, employment, transportation and environmental quality.

The Good News of Jesus has something to offer the megacity we’ll be calling home.

We’ll still be strengthening the body of Christ.

We’ll be doing that at an Anglican Church called All Saints’. All Saints’ is an Evangelical Anglican church catering for members of the English speaking community in Jakarta. Established in 1819, All Saints’ Church Jakarta is the oldest English-speaking institution in Indonesia.

All Saints’ was first used as a base for the London Missionary Society’s mission to China, then as a colonial chaplaincy and for the last seventy years as an international church, All Saints’ has both witnessed and participated in Indonesia’s colourful and turbulent history.

We have two sites where people meet for Sunday services. One in the heart of the CBD, and one in the South of the city. We will still be based in the South of the city looking after the congregation there.

As part of the Anglican Church, All Saints’ is a parish within the Diocese of Singapore. The Diocese and All Saints’ endorse the Jerusalem Declaration (2008). Rt. Revd. Rennis Poniah is the current Bishop of the Diocese of Singapore. This diocese is part of the Anglican Province of South-East Asia. Check us out at https://www.allsaintsjakarta.org.

The work we’ll be doing will be the same.

Karen will still be aiming to walk alongside women who want to deepen their understanding of the Bible, and sharing hospitality. Zane will still be teaching and preaching, and helping people make time for God in the busy-ness of life in the fast lane in the Big Durian. William and Amelia will still be going to school – sorry kids – and hoping to live out their faith on a daily basis.

So, thanks for all of your hard work until now, helping us maintain the security level we needed to while we prepared for work here in Indonesia. We are really excited that we can be more open about the place where we live and work. Now you’ll see even more information and detail in our newsletters – available here http://eepurl.com/dD04bP
