2020 has brought opportunity for new depths of resilience discovery in all of us. I’m not sure challenges make us stronger as much as awaken dormant strength that’s already there.
Every year through friendship, entrepreneurship, and education opportunities, we have historically served about 50 families living in East Java cemeteries. Then COVID-19 came and things changed. Since the lock-down restrictions this spring, we have served 450 more through relief food distribution.
We’ve been operating two facilities, caring for girls who have survived the commercial sex trade in Indonesia. In March we added one more, opening doors to a new transition home in North Sulawesi.
Opportunity to operate in Bali continues opening up, even while COVID-19 has all but shut the island down. Vision is being clarified, partnerships are strengthening, and support is being secured in preparation for a permanent CF presence there in early 2021.

When life stands still, God moves. When the world moves fast, God is steadfast. When we reach the end of our capacity, we’re just scratching the surface of His.
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:2
We can do hard things. And with the help of God, we can do the impossible.
