Ministry Orientations: Salvation, Family & Character Building
Both Daniel and Debby believe that family is very important in life, even in a society or nation. Therefore, besides preaching, they also conduct many seminars, Revival Meetings, and ministries that specifically reach out to families. Many times, through their prophetic gifting, God spoke to people through them. In all aspect of their lives, especially in ministry, they are always hand in hand, building everything together. This dynamic duo also believes in fulfilling the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ: reaching out and blessing the nations one nation at a time. Not only they are compassionate speakers, but this sweet couple are the authors of two books: GoodNews For You and Guard Your Family.
From Indonesia they have reached Malaysia, Singapore, HongKong, China, Vietnam, Australia and United States of America. European countries and the rest of the world will be their next destinations.
