On December 8, 2016, the eleventh year since Anugrah Ministries was founded, we held a Partner Gathering themed “LOVE REVOLUTION”. In this opportunity, we celebrated Christmas with our friends, colleagues and partners, who are part of the big family of Anugrah Ministries.
Located in the Bali Room, Hotel Indonesia
Located in the Bali Room, Hotel Indonesia, Jakarta, the night of the event began with picture taking in the photo booth in the pre function room. People had the chance to get to know each other, as well as a chance to enjoy the welcome drinks.
Hosted by Choky Sitohang and Stephanie Armando
Around 100 people attended the event, and was hosted by Choky Sitohang and Stephanie Armando. Mr. Agustinus Bambang Hendrata, as the Founder of Anugrah Pressindo Foundation, prayed the opening prayer.
In the beginning of the event, the attendees listened to several presentations by close friends of Anugrah Ministries. Pastor Billy Lantang, Board of Trustee from Anugrah Ministries, did a presentation that night about GoodNews, and about Anugrah Ministries as a whole.
Wahyu Prastya and Elvira Natali then did a presentation on the Adikku Sayang Program, representing the 5 Ambassadors of the Adikku Sayang.
The next one was a presentation of Church Make Over by Mr. Robert Soeharsono, Board of Trustee from Anugrah Ministries.
We then continued with a presentation of Uetuwu by Mr. Krisrawitno Moesalim, about the School and Pondok Kasih Anugrah in Uetuwu, which is now receiving 24 hours of electricity every day, as an installation of solar panels recently took place. Every presentation was followed by a progress video from every division of the ministries.
Perform, Songs Offering, and Preaching
The event then resumed with singing a worship song, led by Wawan Yap, before we heard the Word of God. We felt the joy and worshiped the Lord together that night.
Then, Pastor Daniel Hendrata and Pastor Debby Catharina delivered the Word of God about LOVE REVOLUTION. Taken from Hebrews 12:12,”Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.” The message that night was for everyone (who serves Him in his/her own way) to not give up, or be trapped in mundane routines, because God has chosen us to serve our generation. He will always be with us.
After the Word Of God, the event continued with presentation by Pastor Daniel Hendrata and Pastor Debby Catharina about the plans for Anugrah Ministries in the year of 2017. Whilst enjoying the meal, the attendees were also entertained with praise song, performed by Elvira Natali and the students of Adikku Sayang.
Wawan Yap and Rhea Arella also performed several songs that added to the Christmas atmosphere.
Though it was getting late, the event resumed with the auction of paintings by students of Adikku Sayang, and also a musical instrument from Uetuwu, all of which added to the fun we had that night.
We also played a video of Christabelle Marbun and Greysia Polii, who are also Adikku Sayang Ambassadors, but could not attend that night.
We could feel the warm atmosphere in the Partner Gathering 2016: LOVE REVOLUTION. Thank you for all the financial and spiritual support we have received from our friends, partners, and sponsors of Anugrah Ministries over the year of 2016. We hope that we can do bigger things together in the year of 2017, building our beloved country, and serving this generation. God bless you.
