Dear Friends,
Greetings from Indonesia.

In November I arrived here and I will stay till May.
The people here are very thankful that I am helping here as a volunteer in the technical department of the Mission Hospital Bethesda in West Borneo.

Together with some workers we have started changing all the water pipes inside the buildings of the hospital.

Many pipes underground are leaking and are not repairable. It is a big task and we hope to finish in March.

Underground leak

2 of the 3 washing machines are still working well after I have made them manual in recent years but after so much use the metal is corroding at the legs. So we bought some metal plates and I am welding them on the machines as you can see on the picture. Adding a few more years of life to the washing machines.

The motor of the 3rd washing machine has burned out so I will take out all wiring and put in a new motor and make it all manual as well so it will be easier to maintain in the future.

Total 90 beds in the Bethesda Hospital

In October 2010 I met Jeny after 3 years of writing with each other. Lord willing we want to get married 11-11-2011 in Chile.

Jeny still lives with her parents and I could stay with them when I met Jeny in October 2010. I have stayed with them for 2 weeks and it is a nice Christian family. Of course I have also fixed something. In their house there was a sink which was broken since the horrible earthquake of Feb 2010. So we went to the hardware store to buy some parts. And I found a really handy universal adjustable flexible plastic siphon for the sink. So I bought 5 to take a long to the Hospital in Indonesia.

Jeny is helping the Hospital all the way from Chile

Jeny has done her first task in Missions already. The same universal siphons I had taken along to try out here are working great. So I thought: “I should buy some more of those next time I come.” At the same time Jeny writes and says: “You are in missions but I am doing nothing yet for missions” So I said; “Well there is something you can do …” So Jeny has now already sent a whole box of those universal siphons and they already arrived a month later. So in due time I will start exchanging all the leaking siphons so we will have no more dripping drains.

The screen of my laptop has expired; it slowly went darker and then went off. I have used it a lot and it’s already 2 years since I bought it 2nd hand. I’m using a PC now but will have to fix my laptop or find another second hand one. Do you like to help? Send your gift marked “Laptop”

Other costs I have not anticipated is that I need to leave the country by March 15th to be able to get a new visa in a neighboring country so I can stay here till May. It will cost me some extra travel money so I am praying for that. The hospital is happy with all I am able to do here so it is worth the effort. Send your gift marked “Travel”



11 – 11 – 2011     Daniel en Jeny will get married in Chile


Friendly greetings and thank you for your support and prayers.  God bless you
