Ministry: STL International (Shine the Light)

Location: Indonesia

Info: The STL team was called to Indonesia (the southern tip of the Asia continent), in 2003. They are located on the island of Bali in Denpasar.  Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world with 17,000 plus islands and 800 different languages.  The Bali area is predominantly Hindu, which is what Indonesia was before it became Islamic.  Most people believe they are saved through being: born into a Christian family, baptized, or through their church involvement.  They live in Denpasar city, which is a melting pot of all kinds of people with all kinds of religious backgrounds.  They also have a church plant and orphanage ministry in Kupang (on the island of West Timor), and a ministry in Jakarta, which is the second most populated city in the world based on the monga bay survey.

About: God called Brandon into missions less than a year after coming to Christ and after going on a short-term mission trip to Indonesia.  He used some powerful confirmation through His Word (Genesis 12:1, and later Acts 7:3) as well as a natural burning desire while providing all the people and circumstances to do it.  After a process of preparation and strong confirmation and provision from the Lord, Brandon was sent out as a full-time missionary in 2003.  The Lord has provided the grace and mercy for Brandon to continue on there as a missionary over the years.
