Suspicion may keep elder from Bible training

Dimas* is an elder from a church in Central Java who has been studying in our Bible training program. He initially came to one of our preaching seminars after his church tasked him to come and check us out. He liked us so much that he signed up for our monthly Bible study training program.

 

Unfortunately, the other elders and pastors at his church are not enthusiastic about us. They are suspicious and afraid that Dimas might split their church and take part of the congregation away with him. Several elders confronted him and tried to forbid his continuing to attend our training program. Dimas assured the elders that he has no intention of splitting the church. He tells them he is learning much in our Bible training program and wants to continue taking it.

 

Please pray for trust and understanding to be built between this church, their denomination, and our ministry.
