Planning is now in full swing for the second SEED training to be held from June 21st until August 2nd 2009. We are praying for around 15 participants who are ready to die to themselves, to give up their personal ambition and surrender their lives fully to their Father and Creator, so that He can work His will fully in their lives. If you are feeling the call of our Father to serve Him more, we invite you to pray and ask Him if this program is a part of His plan to draw you closer to Himself. Or maybe you are not feeling called to join yourself, but our Father is asking you to support this program with prayer and finances so others can be a part of the training. Or maybe our Father is calling you in a different direction. The important thing is not a program, but OBEDIENCE. We are praying that all of us can continue to walk in faithful obedience to the perfect plans of our Father! What is He calling you to?

Indonesian version:

Tahun ini pada tanggal 21 Juni – 2 Agustus 2009, kami merindukan 15 orang peserta SEED angkatan II akan bergabung dengan pergerakan pemuridan ini. Kami kini berdoa bagi calon peserta supaya mereka adalah orang-orang yang terpilih, rela untuk menyediakan diri untuk mati bagi diri sendiri, mati bagi ambisi pribadi dan menyerahkan hidup mereka kepada Allah Sang Pencipta Kehidupan supaya Dia bekerja seluas-luasnya dalam hidup mereka. Mungkin Anda adalah salah seorang dari calon peserta itu, jika iya, siapkan dirimu, ambil keputusan segera. Buatlah sebuah komitmen sekali seumur hidup yang akan mengubah hidupmu selamanya, berkata ya kepada panggilan Sang Bapa Pencipta Kehidupan dan menyerahkan hidup kita kepadaNya. Percayalah tiada kehidupan yang lebih indah selain menjalani kehidupan ini sesuai Rancangan Allah Sang Pencipta Kehidupan. Jadilah seperti sebuah benih yang mati, ditanam, bertumbuh dan berbuah bagi kemuliaanNa. Mau, mau, mau?

It is hard to believe that almost one year has passed since the first group of SEED participants began their training. Last year 11 disciples were a part of the 6-week program. They were the first “seeds” of faith that were ready to give themselves up to be formed and planted according to the will of their Father and Savior. Those 11 “seeds” have now scattered to different places as the Spirit has led them on.

Ibu Sianturi is still working in the area of Soe (Timor Island, East Indonesia) leading a fellowship group in her house and also continuing the education activities that were started by the SEED team that supported her for three weeks last summer. She is also involved in helping with a new GKMI church plant in Kupang, a larger city a few hours from her house. Stevianto, a member at GKMI Koinonia in Surabaya during his college years, has graduated and returned to his hometown in Central Java to work in his father’s business and be a channel of blessing for many around him. Betrice Tinawati continues to minister through education and has become an important figure in the Oasis English Course that was recently started as an outreach of GKMI Koinonia. Fransina continues to serve unmarried mothers and their children in a wonderful ministry named “Pondok Hayat” (House of Life). Mr. Nurkrisdiono and his wife Maria have continued their ministry to the community in Sidoarjo, mentoring various small groups in the area. Sonny’s heart for worship and music has continued to grow as he faithfully serves in the music ministry at Koinonia. Mr. Eko is trying his hand at business, while at the same time continuing to pray about starting another discipleship program similar to SEED. Krispus is involved in educational ministries to a struggling community located under a highway bridge in Surabaya, and Yordan Pardede is serving a similar community located on the banks of one of the rivers that runs through the city. Mr. Bima continues to teach in various churches in East Java and give leadership to the small group in Sidoarjo.

We praise God for all His great work among us, as we have seen him call, cleanse, and plant the seed of the lives of those who have given themselves to Him. And as we continue to walk with these fine young people, it is glorious to see the fruit that is coming of their lives for His glory, so that “the earth is covered with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” Its all about Him!

Indonesian Version:

Memasuki tahun 2009 tidak terasa kita telah melewati hampir satu tahun sejak SEED angkatan I dimulai. Tahun lalu ada 11 orang murid yang dilatih selama hampir sebulan penuh. Mereka adalah benih iman mula-mula yang telah menyediakan diri untuk dibentuk, ditaburkan dan ditempatkan di tempat yang Tuhan Sang Pemilik Kebun itu kehendaki. Kini ke-sebelas alumni SEED 2008 telah tersebar ke berbagai tempat.

Di antaranya Ibu Sianturi yang kini terlibat di dalam pengembangan pendidikan anak-anak di Soe dan terlibat dalam pekerjaan Tuhan di Kupang yaitu membantu perintisan benih-benih Ilahi disana. Ada juga Stevianto yang telah menyelesaikan studi di Universitas Kristen Petra dan kini mengembangkan bisnis di Kudus dan meneruskan karya Allah Sang Pencipta Kehidupan disana. Juga Betrice Tinawati yang kini giat terlibat di dalam pelayanan pendidikan Bahasa Inggris melalui Oasis English Course. Tidak lupa Sdri. Fransina yang meneruskan untuk mendedikasikan diri melayani anak-anak yang terbuang di Rumah Kehidupan Pondok Hayat Surabaya. Juga Bp. Nurkrisdiono yang juga terlibat di dalam pelayanan Himarani di Sidoarjo bersama dengan isteri. Sdr. Sonny yang melayani di GKMI Koinonia. Bp. Eko yang berjuang membangun bisnis serta merintis pelayanan pemuridan serupa dalam konteks yang lebih lagi di komunitas lokal di Surabaya Barat. Ada pula Krispus yang kini terlibat aktif melayani di GKMI Koinonia dan komunitas kolong jembatan di Tambak Asri, juga Yordan Pardede yang juga merindukan visi melayani kaum pinggiran kota Surabaya terjadi. Juga Bp. Bima, yang terus mencari kehendakNya untuk melayani di Jawa Timur dan sekitarnya.

Kami sungguh memuji Tuhan untuk semua karyaNya yang ajaib, memilih, membersihkan, menabur benih hidup kita, dengan tanganNya sendiri, Ia menempatkan masing-masing kita secara ajaib sesuai kehendakNya, supaya kita berbuah dan namaNya dikenal di seluruh dunia, hingga Ia, Sang Pencipta Kehidupan akan ditinggikan dan diagungkan. It’s all about Him.
