    Indonesia (MNN) — Indonesia has surpassed Brazil and India as the country with most new COVID-19 cases per day. Indonesia reported over 56,000 new cases on Thursday. However, a lack of adequate testing means the true numbers may be much higher.

  • Christians respond as Indonesia hit by back-to-back disasters

    Indonesia (MNN) — The search for survivors continues today in West Sulawesi, Indonesia. “[A] 6.2-magnitude earthquake hit West Sulawesi on January 15; 81 people die[d] and more than 1,000 houses [were] damaged,” Asian Access leader Juserdi* says.

Although a majority of the flooding has subsided, rainfall continues to threaten Indonesia’s already-sinking capital. And as if the weather hadn’t already taken its toll on Jakarta, the city is now “the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic in Indonesia,” according to Juserdi Purba of Asian Access. As of Friday, Indonesia had more than 10,000 cases and 800 deaths. For now, many of those cases are found in Jakarta. Even though the flood...

  • Asian Access’ double impact – on a ministry couple

    Pastor Juserdi Purba and his wife, Dr. Meiti Pragiwati, are quite a couple. In addition to pastoring a network of churches in the Bekasi (Jakarta) area, Ps. Juserdi (whose background is in chemical engineering) works full-time for a large company. And Meiti is indeed a doctor. She currently works as a doctor for a factory two days per week while devoting the majority of her time to family and ministry. Asian Access was fortunate when God decided to... {addthis off}

    earthquake mapA2 President Joe Handley discusses Indonesia double disaster

    Indonesia (MNN) — Joe Handley of Asian Access shares information they received from pastors responding to Indonesia’s recent earthquake and tsunami:

    • The earthquake created liquefaction or like quicksand effect in the soil
    • For first responder aid (up to 6 months), we recommend agencies such as International aid agencies
    • such as World Vision and World Relief (especially Lutheran World Relief)
    • Asian Access' strategy is to provide long-term presence, coming alongside pastors and leaders, empowering and equipping them to respond over the long haul.
    • Right now people need blankets, food, supplies for those who have lost everything.
    • importance of the presence of Christ-followers to meet needs and listening to people's stories and pray for them.

  • Sulawesi rocked by third disaster in six days

    Indonesia (MNN) — The hits just keep on coming for Indonesia. A volcano erupted yesterday on Sulawesi, the same island rocked on Friday by an earthquake-tsunami combo. As described here, a massive explosion of ash blast more than 19,700 feet into the sky from Mount Soputan – one of Sulawesi’s most active volcanoes. Experts tell the Associated Press there’s no concrete evidence linking Soputan’s activity with the 7.5 magnitude earthquake on September 28, but the disasters could be connected. Thankfully, the ash explosion isn’t...

  • Asian Access looks to begin program in Indonesia

    Church leaders are asking for assistance

    cover photo (Header photo by Sander Wehkamp on Unsplash)Indonesia (MNN) – A major component for a healthy church is strong leadership. However, there are so many places around the world where church leaders lack access to leadership tools and training. That’s why Asian Access exists—to equip Christian leaders and to bring leaders together within a country so they can live as the Body of Christ. Noel Becchetti of Asian Access (A2) says it’s looking like an exciting new venture is ahead for Asian Access. Church leaders from Indonesia have invited A2 in to see if a leadership development program can be implemented there. They’ve held conversations for about a year now, and Becchetti and some colleagues recently visited some church leaders to assess the next steps...

  • Jakarta court presses forward in jailing Ahok for blasphemy

    Ahok

    Ahok imprisoned on blasphemy charges, prayers needed

    Indonesia (MNN) — In a surprising turn of events, Jakarta’s former governor, Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, was sentenced to two years in prison for blasphemy. Ahok was Indonesia’s first Christian governor running for re-election. The blasphemy charges were leveled against him by extremist Muslims during the election. After Ahok lost the election, prosecutors moved to drop the blasphemy charges for a lighter charge that would only put Ahok on two years of probation. However, Jakarta judges ignored the prosecution’s advising, and moved ahead with Ahok’s blasphemy trial and sentence.

    Asian Access’ Joe Handley explains, “In terms of the sentence itself, it’s a blasphemy charge because Ahok had quoted the Quran in what was interpreted to be out of context by the more radical side of interpretation of Islam. The moderates said he had no...
