Blessed Beato Andreas Sola church located in a remote village in East Timor, Indonesia, the above picture is showing the old building had dirt floors, leaking aluminium roof during rainy season, leaning bamboo wall, and in a very dilapidated condition.




Seeing their presence in the chapel, professing their faith, despite the apparent hardship of their lives, we were inspired to help them provide a new place for worship.

Many of the church members are farmers. The Oerinbesi Village is one of the regions affected with long dry season (drought) and only a short rainy season. 



According to our plan, Planting the Seeds of Love build a new church for the people in Oerinbesi for a better place to worship and this worship place should be completed within this years 2017.



As planting season ended, the people of Oerinbesi Village started to work on the new church construction. Everyone - young and old, small and big, men and women - can be seen in the field working together and clearing up the land for the construction of their new church
