DECEMBER 2016

By 2016, Newsletter

Greetings in the Name of God to supporters of TeamBoaz. Now we entered the New Year, 2017. When you look back the year 2016, what thought do you recollect?  To my recollection, there’s no moment without God’s minute leading. Obstinately, my effort is said to intervene, it would be that I came here (Jakarta, Indonesia) in obedience to God’s will to create me.

This present business and mission has been entirely based on God’s lead. Nothing came from my prearranged plan and therefore, it looks coincidental, but in actuality it has been started and in proceeding now by God’s preparation. It’s my thought.

I have become enlightened that everything is proceeding in accordance with God’s plan in the beginning and therefore, the Christian’s only way of living in this world is to leave the self to Jesus for Him to live in the self. Last year was such meaningful to me as above-said.

BUSINESS  

In 2016, Chrombit, started from October 2015, has grown up by 30 times compared to the first year. Though there was insufficiency, by exerting ourselves to every project, we have grown up in pleasant cooperation with our clients who trusted us.

Particularly, it was great harvest to have attracted several Indonesian local clients from the second half of 2016. Indonesian local clients are Chrombit’s major targets and therefore, price is a weak point to compete the competitive local enterprises, but by keeping the supply of quality designs at reasonable prices, it seems to begin growing of awareness among local clients.

Since the Exhibition, M-Cash is busy in preparing various works, including recruitment of franchisees to meet the official launching scheduled to be in February. I wish to share with you one pleasant news. A leading Indonesian financial group joined M-Cash as a joint investor. Now the prospect of M-Cash has lightened by the partnership of confident local entity. Now 4 principals as joint investors made the foundation for supplying in earnest the Fintech service around the entire area of Indonesia.

MISSION

Last December 3rd (Saturday) there was successfully held a “White Concert (music concert)” to support Team Boaz in cooperation with Jakarta Far East Broadcasting “Happy Jakarta”. The White Concert of Happy Jakarta is held every year around Christmas season as the representative Korean culture festival.

This year it was especially prepared for the support of TeamBoaz. At the end of the concert the picture of Team Boaz mission was featured and donations were delivered.

TeamBoaz’s mission work is not only for the education of the children of poor village in Indonesia but also for supporting university students from third countries studying in Korea. (We call this project as “Boazian Network”) The work is to support the alienated foreign students from the Third World countries now studying in Korea, to finish their learning well and to grow up to become leaders after returning to their home countries.

This year in succession of last year we supported the year-end party for the students from Uzbekistan. The comments, a student participated in the last year’s party said “Today I have the most pleasant and warmest experience since I came to Korea.”, is still recollected. I think it is a meaningful work for the future of Korea in the globalized era to help those who are suffering due to origin from the Third World and the absence of management system for foreign students in Korea, even though they came to Korea with great expectation.

Therefore, we prepared this party for Uzbekistan students to let them keep as a happy memento the party that they had in a remote place around the year-end and New Year.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit which wants to become a model good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by virtue of the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace on the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living up to is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live up to (Word) as a model of true Christianity.
  3. By God’s guidance, we got investors to M-Cash. We have looked for investors who are not mere fund investors but those who can attribute to extension of fintech business of M-Cash. By the support of your prayer, we could find out the right investors. Please give thanks to God for responding to our prayers.
  4. We are looking for investors to Chrombit as well. Its business domain covers web development, app development and graphic design services. (Including various printing services) This is the service market to inevitably grow up together with the Indonesian economy now on development. We need angel investors who don’t expect big profits at once but be willing to wait for us to make a competitive ICT marketing enterprise. Please pray for this.
  5. It is desirable that through Team Boaz’s service, the staff of M-Cash and Chrombit can meet the joy welling up in the service with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel.

OCTOBER & NOVEMBER 2016

By 2016, Newsletter

Greetings in the Name of God to supporters of TeamBoaz after a long interval! Owing to several tasks needed to be done in advance, the mission report for the October and November has now come out. The year 2016 has now less than one month left. In God’s name, I wish you to have the year end, recollecting the grace endowed by God in your life during the year with thanks offering.

BUSINESS

Through the year, Chrombit is getting secure little by little with the grace of God, the owner. Steady clients are increasing. The staffs’ working capability has greatly increased and now they are doing the jobs by themselves without my deep involvement.

At the “2016 Interfood Jakarta”, the greatest food exhibition in Jakarta (Nov 9 – 12, 2016), we officially introduced “M-Cash”, the new Fintech business that we have prepared for last 6 months. M-Cash is a location-based O2O (Online to Offline) service platform with pre-order, delivery, reservation, and full pack of mobile payment and marketing solutions.

Lots of people visited M-Cash booth and showed keen interest, listening to the explanation about the service and having a trial performance. It is encouraging that throughout the exhibition we received lots of enquiry about the franchise of M-Cash service.

MISSION

Saptu Ceria (the afterschool class run by TeamBoaz) entered into the two months’ vacation, after completion of the Autumn semester, at the end of the last November. As usual, in the Autumn semester our volunteer seminary students taught English, mathematics, mother tongue (Indonesian), computer and etc. to about 150 Muslim children at 4 poor villages in the suburbs of Jakarta.

The children at Sumber Kasih kindergarten learn hard day after day, wearing cute uniforms. From time to time, mothers of the children help the single teacher as assistants during the class. At Sumber Kasih kindergarten, they have the winter vacation, but it is operated in the same course of study and semester as those of other usual kindergartens and therefore, it is scheduling to start the spring semester after having 6 weeks’ vacation in a month.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace on the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living up to (Words) is more effective than that by words only. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live up to as a model of true Christianity.
  3. We are looking for investors to M-Cash business. During the exhibition, we had investment negotiation with approx. 10 venture capitals. All of them showed high interest. However, the investment should be completed by the end of February next year. Please pray for this.
  4. It is really desirable that through TeamBoaz ministry, the staffs of M-Cash and Chrombit can meet the joy welling up in the services with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel. Please pray for this.
  5. Another concert for supporting TeamBoaz is under preparation in cooperation with Jakarta Far East Broadcasting. You are requested to pray for the perfect preparation of the “White Concert” to be held on December 3.

Greetings in the Name of God full of love and good. May Jesus Christ’s love and grace be full in the life of co-workers who pray for TeamBoaz.

BUSINESS

Chrombit is steadily growing with increase of the number of clients who continue to use its products and services in confidence. I pray for the Chrombit’s supporters also to share this assurance I have been enjoying since I entrusted entirely the ownership to God.  It’s possible by only a single action. It is to entrust the ownership of your life to God

The new Fintech project, now in preparation, is busily underway in the work of preparation for participation in the greatest Food Exhibition in Jakarta. Due to issues accompanying development, the official launching is expected to delay for a month after the exhibition. But, the preparation is made to recruit as many franchisees and users as possible during the exhibition. All the members are working hard with pleasure so as no problems to occur.

MISSION

In grace went off well the “Benefit Concert Supporting Team Boaz’s Mission Work” in cooperation with Jakarta Far East Broadcasting held in the evening of last Sept 6th. The infamous traffic jam of Jakarta reaches the climax on Friday. Through such a jam an audience of 60 persons took part in. It is told that about 20 Indonesians took part in.

The concert was sponsored by the greatest supporter for TeamBoaz’s Mission Work, a maker of the luxury snake skin handbag with the brand name of KHARIS (‘Grace’ in Greek), and others. The donation collected at this concert is to be used for the preparation of Christmas Event.

PRAYER

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.

GREETINGS!


Greetings in the name of Immanuel God being always with your children. May Jesus Christ’s love and grace be full in the life of co-workers who pray for Team Boaz whenever it reminds.

As I confessed in the last report, Team Boaz’s working realm is expanding in the main Christian society and Korean society in Indonesia, in such a way that’s beyond my thought, by God’s intervention.

The one is that Benefit Concert Supporting Team Boaz’s Education for the Slum Children in Indonesia was fixed to be held on Sept 16th (Friday) in corporation with Jakarta Far East Broadcasting. You are requested to pray for this concert to be an opportunity to make known TeamBoaz‘s valued works through Changsook Kim(the professor of Seoul Theological University) Recital.

The other one is that Team Boaz’s works came to be shared with the staffs of the Indonesia branch office of CBN, the greatest Christian broadcaster in the world. I could never imagine that my good relationship with the staffs of CBN headquarters, which was made during my having benchmarked 700 Club, CBN’s representative program, for CTS TV, my previous job, would influence the establishment of good relationship with the staffs of CBN Indonesia branch office.

They showed keen interest in not merely the education program for slum children but either IT training program for missionary students being in the charge of Muslim staffs of Chrombit. Though it is not clear how the cooperation with CBN will develop in future, God’s exquisite prearrangements are expected.

BUSINESS

Chrombit is run by the grace of God. It continues to grope for marketing tools to enter into the mainstream society in Indonesia. Though it is suffering from financial difficulties in the state below the break-even point as yet, God, the Owner, shows His ownership on every month’s payday (5th) without fail. The newly proceeding Fintech project will have an official launching at the INTERFOOD 2016, the greatest food exhibition in Jakarta. Please pray that all the preparations can be done without any problems as the launching date is fixed.

MISSION

After long summer vacation ended at the end of August, began the new semester of the after school class and the kindergarten supported by Team Boaz. Teacher Grace, who served for the one year, was replaced with Ms. Eka. Totally 38 students enrolled in this semester.

Lately, some saints of a church in Busan, Korea came here on their way of a vision trip to Indonesia and had a visit to Sumber Kasih kindergarten class. We had prayer time for them together. Even though it was short time, we had the same thought that there are too many places for us to share the Love of God endowed to us.

Saptu Ceria after-school classes too started in 4 regions altogether. Though the educational environment is still inferior, about 40 students enrolled in each region.

This shows that Muslim mothers have a pleasant chat, waiting for the children in class, in front of Pondok Agape Missionary School, one of the places where the after-school class is made. It is a usual scene, but it looks fresh to me every time I visit.

This month too, our Chrombit staffs volunteered to teach the seminary students OJT of the computers. From this month forward the teaching is to be made twice a month by the staffs in two teams.

PRAYER

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace at the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live out as a model of true Christianity.
  3. We are looking for investors to Chrombit. To provide better services, we have to organize more competitive teams and need funds for marketing. Please pray that we can meet angel investors who would share with us the missionary vision through business on the prospect of growth possibility in future.
  4. Please pray that the establishment of PT. Mobile Cash Indonesia can be smoothly processed. Due to delay of the app development, the proceedings are aimed at the end of September. Please pray that all the works, including launching event to be held early in November, can be made without any snag.
  5. It is desirable that through Team Boaz’s service, staffs can meet the joy welling up in the services with their skills. First, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel. Please pray for this.
  6. You are requested to pray that as many people as possible participate in the Changsook Kim Recital for supporting Team Boaz to be held on Sept 16th and can have time to enjoy precious grace.

JUNE & JULY 2016

By 2016, Newsletter

GREETINGS!

May God bless you, Team Boaz’s co-workers, zealous for ‘Good Fight’ in everyday life by grace of Jesus Christ, the Lord of faith and perfection. The monthly report has been delaying due to my being overburdened with various tasks.

In June and July, the time of summer vacation, we cancelled the after-school classroom, the kindergarten and the seminary students’ OJT of computers. The opening course for next semester is now in preparation to be completed by the end of July. And, therefore, the monthly report of June and July should cover the grace being experienced while participating in “CBMC Vision School” held in Manila, Philippines early June.

BUSINESS & MISSION

By an invitation of one of my acquaintances I happened to participate in a meeting of CBMC in my resident region and with it, I continue to particpate in the meetings of CBMC GGUMANG y Branch, Korean businessmen’s club mainly composed of Christian businessmen resident in Indonesia. It is quite impressive that, in the meetings, they discuss in honesty and sincerity various issues which they, as Christianity, confront in the business sites.

The definite cause, that brought me to this land of Indonesia as a layman businessman, though I graduated in theology, with resolution to spread the gospel not by words only but by living up to the Word, was the belief that the most important are the usual theology, usual belief and usual spirituality in our daily life.

Beyond such a faith as merely attending church in the belief of Jesus as our Savior and hardly attaining the ticket to Heaven, I thought the strongest mission power comes from serving Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, as my Lord, and obeying His planned mission given to me and, by Holy Spirit’s authoritative help, living up to real Christianity.

At the CBMC Vision School held in Manila, Philippines, the lecturers have summarized the contents as follows:

CBMC pursues how to deal with all those matters that, businessmen with usual theology, usual faith and usual spirituality, confront.

On this finding, I cannot but be moved by God’s Grace to have guided me to CBMC.

After returning from the event in Manila, I am more earnestly joining CMBC’s works. In fact, I have been feeling God’s rebuke. In the course of my life so far, He has made me have experiences, in full, of living God’s elaborate interference in everyone’s living. He even guided me to major in theology. Frankly, I’ve been lazy in sharing these experiences and understanding with others. From now on, it is expected to have more sharing of God’s grace through CBMC meetings and to give chances for me to learn more.

Chrombit is steadily growing since God took the burden of all the management. It is really felt that leaving the management to God’s care is even safer than my struggling. I wish to share this grace with you. The newly started application development company is in preparation, step by step, for 런칭 together with partners. The preparation proceeds in consultation with God even for the slightest decisions.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by virtue of the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace at the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live out as a model of true Christianity.
  3. The new fintech business to be established in Indonesia is named “PT. Mobile Cash Indonesia” and organized in partnership with Chrombit, LYTO (the largest online game provider in Indonesia) and KCS (fintech app developer). Please pray for the partnership to be kept in harmony with cooperation and concede by overcoming greed.
  4. Please pray for the establishment of the corporation and the localization of the app program to be accomplished by the end of August and the marketing to be readily made in gradual increase.
  5. It is desirable that through Team Boaz’s service, staffs could enjoy the pleasure welling up in the services with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel. Please pray for this.

GREETINGS!

May the Lord Jesus Christ’s grace and peace be full always in the life of those who pray for Team Boaz. The mission report of this month has delayed due to various duties assigned to the reporter lacking sufficient ability to manage. This month too, it was allowed to experience living God’s working.

Last month, we requested to pray for the repair or replacement of the air conditioner in the computer laboratory of the seminary, where OJT (On the Job Training) of the computer is made. Thanks to many supporters’ help, the education is now performed in cool environment. In less than a month after our request for prayer, we got the response to the prayer.

In particular, a deacon, who’s one of our clients, moved his business site to expanded one and had there an opening ceremony as an event to raise funds for Team Boaz’s Mission. He donated the fund collected from visiting customers, including some portion of sales profit on that day.

I feel keenly, through the coworkers God guided to us, that Team Boaz Mission, even though it is small, is what God pleases. I would like to thank all the Team Boaz’s coworkers who support in various ways and pray without cease.

BUSINESS

Chrombit is on the way of steady growth based on the trust built up through constant relationship with the first customer of our Co-working Space Business, which is the initial business we set up in Indonesia, and those who got acquainted with business in Jakarta.

With a new item provided by busy working for the last few months, we’ve come to start a business in partnership. Around the end of May, the process to establish a joint venture(JV) was fixed to start. This business will provide with convenient and useful fintech service to the Indonesian people confronting difficulty under their poor financial environment. Please pray that our technology contributes to improvement of Indonesian’s quality of life and, as its result, becomes the path to evangelization.

On May 25 and 26 I visited Handong Global University, my alma mater, and gave a special lecture to the undergaduate and graduate students. I shared my little experience about overseas employment and establishment with my juniors who are agonizing over the problem of youth unemployment. With the graduate students from the Third World countries (It is said that they are usually public officials in their countries.) I shared the experience of difficulty in doing business as a foreigner in Indonesia.

MISSION

This month, we had the first graduation ceremony on a smart scale at the Sumberkasih kindergarten. These 8 children to be graduated this time are the first fruits our mission gathers. “Sumber” means “love” and “Kasih” means “give”. I earnestly pray that as many children of poor families graduated from our kindergarten as possible may grow up to be the messengers of “Love”.

(The image of the 1st graduation ceremony at Sumberkasih kindergarten)

This month too, our Chrombit staffs taught the seminary students OJT of the computer. Two staffs newly employed in May also volunteered to teaching. In particular, as it was the first class after the repair of the air conditioner, either the teachers or the students were more eager to teach or to learn, enjoying pleasant environment.

(Image of IT class in the good air conditioned room)

First of all, it is meaningful that the seminary students could experience and realize God’s graciousness allowed to those who, in obedience, willingly participate in the work God wants. Once again I wish to heartily thank you all who have supported by prayer and/or materials.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by virtue of the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace at the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live out as a model of true Christianity.

  4. Please pray for the establishment of the corporation and the localization of the app program to be completed by the end of August and the marketing to be readily made in gradual increase.

GREETINGS

May God’s grace and peace be always full in the life of those who pray for Team Boaz.

In the last month’s missionary report, I requested your prayer for cure of a mother named “Kartini”. Around 9:30 PM of Apr 9th she returned to God’s bosom.

It’s really to be regretted that on Sunday, just the next day (Apr 10th) there was scheduled for a meeting to provide medical expenses for her at a Korean church stationed in Jakarta.

From one of our Team Boaz’s coworkers who reads our missionary report, came to us a news that the church keeps a fund in reserve for clinical missionary work and we were in preparation for getting support for her medical expenses. It’s our human emotion that her situation could have been known little bit earlier, but draws our deep thanks the fact that she accepted Jesus Christ just before passing away and her bereaved children attend church. (scene of funeral ceremony)

In addition, though I have theologically had a doubt on a salvation just before death, having recently read Pastor Billy Graham’s sermon quoting Luke 23:43, I have come to be confident of Kartini’s salvation and it comforts me even greater. I would like to share Kartini’s “Being Saved” with all of you having participated in intercession for Kartini’s cure and, send you my warmest thanks.

BUSINESS

Chrombit is run under Grace since it was entirely placed under God’s control. In April too, He obtained an order for new project of web-development. The graphic design service is on gradual growth backed up by steady orders from our existing clients.

In operation of our business, the most concerned part is the worship hour in the morning, when business reports are made to God, the Owner of the company. The worship starts with praise and, during prayer, every detail on business is reported. After offering prayer, I have time to quietly hear His voice.

Though there might be someone to feel repulsion toward this sort of commentary from theological perspective, I am eager to have intimate contact with God on the belief that He is always together with me. Apart from whether this to be believed or not, since this report was periodically made, He, real Owner, has treated many things in His discretion and accordingly, I’ve come to dwell in peace.

Last February, I happened to participate in a local meeting of CMBC(Connecting Business &Maketplace to Christ). Some told me that there are gathering almost poor people and therefore, you could hardly expect any nurture(?). However, I could once again experience God with no faults, preparing everything, through this meeting.

I am earnestly attending this meeting every week, in the pleasure to get together with those coworkers endeavoring to do business under God’s guidance and, on the holy burden of my being of any help to them as I majored in theology, devote myself to missionary work through business.

MISSION

Lots of people have showed deep concern for our missionary work for last 3 months since the start-up. This month, a deacon, who received our missionary report, donated a used TV set and one DVD player to a kindergarten in Bencongan poor village, which is supported by Team Boaz. Before, the audiovisual education was carried out with the teacher’s note book with small screen. Too needy items have been supported.

(Donated TV & DVD, Scene of Sumber Kasih kindergarten’s lesson)

This month either, our Chrombit staffs volunteered to teach the seminary students OJT(On the Job Training) of computer.

The First class was about Excel, and the second class about Photoshop. In every class ten or more attendants were earnest in learning.

By the way, due to breakdown of the air conditioner in the computer laboratory, both teaching staffs and students seemed to feel hard. Added with heat emitting from computers, the inside of the small computer laboratory got hot in a few minutes from start-up, reminding me of the dry sauna. I promised to repair the air conditioner so that they can have education in a cool environment next month. Your prayer for this is requested.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by virtue of the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace at the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live out as a model of true Christianity.
  3. We are seeking investors to Chrombit. Please pray that we may encounter such investors that share the same vision with us.
  4. It is desirable that through Team Boaz’s service, staffs could enjoy the pleasure stemming from services with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel. Please pray for this.
  5. You are requested to pray for the repairing expenses of the air conditioner in the computer laboratory, where computer OJT is held, to be supported before the next class starts, so that they should be able to have OJT in the cool laboratory in May.

GREETINGS

May God’s grace and peace be full in the life of our confident TeamBoaz’s supporters. It has already elapsed a quarter of the year.

Recently I have time to contact God just upon awakening in the morning and just before sleeping at night, though it’s not long time, with praising and meditation of Words and prayer. Feeling His presence, I am full of joy in His peace. Although there is no change in my situation and the financial condition of the company gives no sign to be improved, I only inform God, “The Owner of the Company”, of the tasks that should be done by the owner and then, my heart gets rest, and, after some time, find Owner’s wonderful power that has solved the worrisome issues.

BUSINESS
Chrombit is still at the stage of a toddler. Though the project continues without cease every month by virtue of God’s Grace, the way is far and rough for it to grow to become the most reliable web agency in Indonesia.

This month’s report is going to be summed up with what God, the real Owner of our company, has worked for us.
[The 5th day of the next month is workers’ payday. But the budgetary shortage was expected. Even though there were some receivable payments from customers, it was ambiguous to pressure them the payment. From yesterday God scolded me while I prayed for the short budget.

“Didn’t you say that I am the owner of your company? Then, why do you worry about what the owner should do? Don’t you trust me, your Owner?”

So, I prayed. “Would you then obtain a new project for the company……”. But yesterday no project was obtained. By the way, an e-mail came from one client to whom we had offered a quotation a week ago. It said that after careful study of the quotation, decision would be informed. Though it gave slight comfort, I was down due to no project being achieved as I willed. But this kind of situation gave no fear. As I did whenever there’s no response after the prayer, I must have inwardly thought like this. “That’s the way it goes……Could even God do any better? I have to work harder…..but how to manage?….”

This morning too, there’s no other way but to pray just upon awakening. Fell suddenly upon me the fear of the short budget. During prayer, this message came up in my mind.

“Leave it to me. That’s not your job. It’s the problem that I, the owner, have to solve at my discretion. If you continue to stick to the worry that’s my concern, it means that you disregard me.”

Today, came out this prayer perhaps because I heartily accepted the reality beyond my control. “Yes, Master! I will no more worry about this. You, the owner, are requested to solve this problem. I will do other things only.” After my morning prayer finished, when I was doing other things somewhat in a mood of “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), came a SMS from one of the staffs.” A call from the bank asks our confirmation on the transaction, informing that some amount of Dollars was remitted to our account from a client in the U.S.” My shout for joy. “Amen, that’s right, of course…..”

For 2 years from the start-up of business until now, we have never delayed the payment of wages. We’ve come to be able to keep the record this month too.

How long should I continue to walk in this kind of disbelief?…..Outwardly boasting that He, who has everything and can do everything, is my father, I do not trust Him in actuality.

In memory of the fact that our God, the living Master of our company, has solved the pressing financial difficulties, this record is carried on the FaceBook.

MISSION
Upon receiving the information that the mother of one of the children attending the Bencongan child-care center supported by Team Boaz has been severely ill, I paid a visit of sympathy. The house was situated in the shantytown. In the room reeked off stench from toilet and the kitchen was unspeakably unsanitary. The roof was leaking. It can hardly be called a house. It’s similar to living in the streets.

Her condition seemed to get even worse than that we have heard of. It looked as if the pain was so severe that she couldn’t have any thought.

According to a verbal message, she’s suffered from not only uterus cancer but other organic diseases and therefore, even the hospital gave up treatment. (Even though she couldn’t get normal treatment, by the government support, she had been diagnosed two, three times.)

Even though she is Islam, she asked us to offer prayers. It means that her mind is now opened. From two months before, four children are sent to the church in the premise of the seminary. These children are the first case that the mission was accomplished through our child-care center in the poor village. At the sight of her agony, I couldn’t but felt heartbroken sorrow. One thing only we could do was prayers. We offered an audible public prayer on the thought that, if she could be cured by the miracle of Jesus, the family would accept the gospel.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit. It’s desired for Chrombit to become a model of the good enterprise and the channel to blessings. It is wanted that Indonesian’s quality of life would improve through the products and services supplied by Chrombit. Please pray for the company’s growth in quality and volume.
  2. Please pray for the employees at Chrombit to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace while working. Based on the belief that Evangelism through living is far more effective than that by words, you are requested to offer intercessory prayer for me to be able to live as a model of true Christianity.
  3. We are seeking investors for Chrombit. Please pray for us to meet those investors sharing the same vision with us.
  4. It is desired that through Team Boaz’s service, staffs could feel the joy that stems from services with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they could learn the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Your prayer for this is requested.
  5. Please pray for the cure of the mother of the child attending the child-care center at the poor village in Bencongan. At present, four children there are attending the church every Sunday. I have no doubt that the cure of the mother will become the critical moment for evangelization of the poor village in Bencongan. Every moment you are reminded, please pray for her cure. Her name is Kartini.

GUIDANCE ON DONATION

GREETINGS

Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be always with you in every field in your life! Since the first release of my newsletter on our missionary work last month, I have received a number of supportive messages. The warm encouraging message is to be attributed not to me but to God, our Lord. I wish to ascribe the glory to God because He has allowed me, despite of lots of my incompetence, an opportunity to join the most precious mission of His and made my heart be willing to obey and nothing has been done at my will.

BUSINESS

Last October setting IT as its business target, Chrombit Digital Lab Co. has focused on the App publishing for its main business model. Indonesia has long been an underdeveloped nation and therefore, the gap between the rich and the poor in it is greater than that in any other country.

Taking Jakarta for an example, there are many places where we can see both the developed and the underdeveloped country at the same time. This means that there are human and material resources on the level of developed countries.

This brings me a conviction that, if we can provide a new service created from combining such an environmental factors with IT technology, it will be possible to improve Indonesian’s quality of life in general. Based on this concept, we continue to enforce our capacity to supply the item being adjusted to local situations out of the applications already used in the developed countries including Korea.

At present, we are preparing to enter into Fintech realm in cooperation with a Korean app supplier. Through the network being set up so far, we have secured a reliable local partner. As soon as the concrete plans are fixed, you will be informed of the details. You are, therefore, requested to pray for this project whenever it is reminded.

MISSION

Our Chrombit staffs taught the local seminary students how to use the computer this month also. From this month the teaching is made in two classes which were divided according to the level, that is, the beginner’s course and middle-class level.

The Microsoft Excel is taught in prior. The classroom is the computer laboratory in the premises of the missionary school. The condition of computers in that laboratory has deteriorated. A couple of computers can’t run Microsoft Office programs because they are not installed with original Windows OS. In future, Team Boaz will make the effort to improve the educational environment by getting support from some portion of Chrombit’s profit.

Team Boaz’s another work is the support to the childcare center for children from poor villages. One of the local missionary students (named: Grace) entered the village and started operation of the childcare center by opening her resident one room. Team Boaz is supplying snacks for the children here.

The parents of this village are all Muslim and the village chief is a Muslim too. He, at first, opposed the operation of a childcare center in the village, but the persistent persuasion by Grace has attained the chief’s approval and now the center is to be openly operated. At the entrance ceremony day, we could find 23 enrollers exceeding 20 at first scheduled to accept in order of application.

At the entrance orientation, Grace opened her heart to the Muslim parents. Knowing that parents are worrying about her missionary student status, she relieved their anxiety, by explaining them that her purpose of operating the childcare center comes from her love for children and zeal only and there is no intention for mission.

It could be felt that Muslim parents had deep thanks for the supply of a chance to educate their children, even though they know it is given by a missionary student. I pray that God’s precious love and grace may overflow to these children from poor villages.

PRAYERS

  1. Please pray for the growth of Chrombit, which wants to become a model of good enterprise that supplies good jobs and to be a path to blessings. It is desired that Indonesian’s quality of life may improve by virtue of the products and services provided by Chrombit. Your prayer is requested for the growth in both quality and volume of the enterprise.
  2. Please pray that our workers will be able to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace at the job sites. Ministering Gospel by living is more effective than that by words. Your intercessory prayer is, therefore, requested for me to live out as a model of true believer.
  3. We are seeking investors to Chrombit. Please pray that we may encounter such investors that share the same vision with us.
  4. It is desirable that through Team Boaz’s service, staffs could enjoy the pleasure stemming from services with their skills. First of all, it’s desired that they should contact Jesus Christ Gospel. Please pray for this.
  5. Around the end of March we are scheduling to have Team Boaz Meeting with foreign students from underdeveloped countries in Busan. Requested is your prayer for this and that they could be comforted for such hurt as a sense of alienation they got while adjusting to Korean life.

GREETINGS

This is Choongsil Lee, who’s experimenting a certain model for mission through business in Jakarta, Indonesia. The undersigned is in charge of the operation of Chrombit Digital Lab, a commercial company and TeamBoaz, a non-profit organization. For those who are praying for our missionary work, a monthly newsletter began to be released from Jan 2016. You are kindly requested to read it and offer an intercessory prayer whenever it reminds you.

BUSINESS

In October 2015 Chrombit Digital Lab was incorporated. This company is a kind of digital marketing company that supplies such services as Web Design/Development, CI/BI Design, Graphic Design, Application Publishing, and the like. The motive to set up this Chrombit can be summed up in two factors.

  1. The possibility to fuse Indonesian’s creative designing ability and Korean advanced IT technology.
  2. Prospect of vigorous growth in the market of digital marketing service and application services based on smart-phone, backed up by steadily increasing Indonesian users of internet and smart-phone.

At present the work is being done by the team composed of one Korean developer, two Indonesian developers and one Indonesian graphic designer. You can scrutinize the detailed information on our variable services at the web-sites: www.chrombit.com, www.facebook.com/Chrombit

At the present starting stage, the number of customers is small but steadily increasing. In coming three years, growing up to the level of the most reliable digital marketing design agency in Indonesia is the Goal of our company.

MISSION

TeamBoaz is an NGO, supporting foreign students from developing countries currently studying in Korea and poor children in developing countries. For the students in Korea, various assistant programs for adaptation to life in Korea are supplied, and for Indonesian poor children, an after-school classroom is under operation.

In particular, the after- school teachers, volunteering, are seminary students of an Indonesian Presbyterian Church. Our Muslim staffs are teaching them how to operate the computer programs such as Excel, PowerPoint, vision edition, graphic design and etc.

It is desirable that our Muslim staffs happen to contact the Gospel of Jesus Christ during their teaching, and to the students, it could be a chance for them to obtain the necessary skills for their mission work in future after graduation.

PRAYERS

  1. You are requested to give prayers for the growth, in quality and volume, of the company, which is eager to become a model of good enterprise to supply desirable work places to natives.
  2. Chrombit wants to be a path to blessing and to be just the place where Indonesians want to work the most. The place where everyone can display her/his ability to the fullest and spread dreams.
  3. Please pray for employees at Chrombit to experience Jesus Christ’s love and grace in working. On the belief that evangelism by living is more effective than that by words, we are going to do it through business, instead of traditional pattern.
  4. Intercessory prayer is requested for me to be able to live as an example of Christianity and for Jesus Christ’s great power to appear, covering up my weakness and inadequacy.
  5. It is desirable that through TeamBoaz’ services, the staffs could feel the pleasure welling up from services with their skills. First of all, I wish they would be able to contact Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please offer your prayer for this.
  6. Please pray for the foreign students from underdeveloped countries studying in Korea. They encounter a lot of difficulties in real life in Korea, because Korean government and schools are interested in bringing them into only. There are many students to return home with anti-Korean emotion. I want they could get comfort and be adaptable to situations through TeamBoaz’s good office.
  7. Among the foreign students from underdeveloped countries there are many we have to contact with evangelism, such as Muslim, Hindu and the like. Please pray for them to accept the Gospel.
