Barry and Patty Jordan

Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Patty and I have been in Indonesia since 1989, where we focus on discipleship/leadership training, youth and contextual ministries. We teach and preach in the C&MA/GKII (Indonesian partner) churches and theological schools. We invest in Team Joshua youth ministries, which has ministries in 4 different cities in Papua. Through TEPAT and teaching at the main secular university here in Papua, we reach out to the unchurched.

Our oldest daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Cody, are serving with Missionary Athletes International out of the Chicago area. Our son, Joshua, has just finished his degree program at Toccoa Falls College and is asking God about the next steps. Daniel, our youngest, is a high schooler at Hillcrest International School.
