On Tuesday, 22nd of December 2015, Anugrah Ministries took the children of Adikku Sayang from 2 centers in Jakarta and 6 centers in Bekasi on a fieldtrip, in order to celebrate Christmas that fell right on their holiday season as well. This time, we went to Satria Mandala Museum, located at Gatot Subroto, South Jakarta.
We departed at 8 am from Anugrah Headquarter with a bus and a few cars. 103 children joined the field trip that day. Not only the children participated on that day, but also center leaders and a few parents of the Adikku Sayang children.
At around 9 am, we reached Satria Mandala Museum. After picture taking, we started our tour in the museum. A tour guide led us and gave explanation to us about the history of Indonesian independence. Our late President Soeharto built this museum. On this field trip, we got to see many war equipments in the museum, from the past until the modern time, such as land mines, missile, torpedo, tank, cannon tank, helicopter, and planes. Our children were so happy to be able to take pictures and go up on the tanks.
After touring the museum for almost two hours, we asked the children’s response. It turned out that they learned a lot of new knowledge through the field trip. We also found out that some children actually have a dream of becoming soldiers. We are very happy to hear that, because Adikku Sayang program can inspire them to dare to dream.

From the museum, we continued our journey to MC Donald’s at Sarinah. We had lunch together there, and then we proceeded with playing fun games. Besides that, we also listened to Christabelle Marbun’s testimony (aka Abel). Abel gave motivation to the children of Adikku Sayang to study well, so they can reach all that they dream of.
We also heard the word of God that Ps. Daniel Hendrata shared from John 3:16. Ps. Daniel motivated the children of Adikku Sayang to believe that Jesus came into this world to redeem us from our sin, and that we must always believe His promises, because nothing is impossible in Him.
After that, Ps. Daniel invited one of the sponsors who joined this field trip to hand a trophy to The Most Diligent Adikku Sayang student, academic year 2014-2015. Mrs. Merianti gave the trophy to Ervin from Tambun Center as the most diligent in coming to the learning center for free tuition, and taking nutrition in the morning. Meanwhile, the award of student with The Highest Achievement, academic year 2014-2015 was rewarded to Samuel Kevin.
After the handing over of the trophy, we got ready to go home. But before that, we distributed goodie bags. The children were so happy on that day, because not only they received new knowledge, but also Christmas presents.
Thanks to every partner and sponsor of Anugrah Ministries who has supported Adikku Sayang program, so this field trip can be accomplished. Your support has given Christmas joy to the children of Adikku Sayang. God bless you!
