MEET THE TEAM
J.P. and Judy have served as International Workers with the C&MA since 1991. Until 2013 they had the privilege of being dorm parents at M.K. boarding schools in Papua, Indonesia, Penang, Malaysia, Cote d'Ivoire, and Senegal. For the last two years they have served in Mali as the business agent, guesthouse manager, and administrator and teachers at the English center, Go Global Mali. No matter what ministry they have been involved in, they have seen God do amazing things in peoples lives.
Now God is calling them to a different field of service. They are joining Envision to serve in Bandung, Indonesia. They are very excited to see how God will use them in that ministry. They have three daughters. Alexis, Stephanie and Jordana.

ABOUT THE SITE
Indonesia is an archipelago located in South East Asia, just north of Australia. It is made up of 17,500 islands. It is the 4th most populous nation in the world with roughly 240 million people. 145 million of these people live on the island of Java making it the most populous island on the face of the planet! The Envision Site is located on this island in the city of Bandung (population: 5 million people).
God has been at work in Indonesia well before we arrived and he will continue his work well after our time here is complete. As international workers in Indonesia, we do not start from scratch, but rather join the momentum, the vision, and the history of God’s master plan here. One thing that is important to Envision Indonesia is that everything we do be in partnership with the local indigenous church. Our hope is to see more Indonesians share the good news with Indonesians. The ministries we do must empower the local church and its leaders, strengthen them, and give them momentum. This is paramount. The specific ministries here in Bandung are still being developed. For those individuals looking for an intense 10-month long internship living among the poor, learning from them, and serving with them, check out Berakah Way at www.berakahway.org.
