Ronny and Kay Heyboer left Australia for Borneo in January 1995. They began their work in the city of Kuching, East Malaysia on the Island of Borneo where Ronny was assisting with the church planting program in a local ministry. In 1997 they relocated to the Indonesian part of Borneo, West Kalimantan, which is where they continue to minister today. They also have their two youngest children; Nathaniel, and Joel with them in Indonesia.
Their Vision – “Living Waters Village” in the jungle of West Kalimantan
“We moved to the city of Sintang in January 2002 and rented a large building so that we could provide accommodation for school children who were in need. We now have more than 450 school children and young people living with us. Some of our young people we are supporting through tertiary education to gain skills which will benefit the ministry in the future, so too at Bible College and 55 fulltime workers and leaders.”
An Ongoing Vision...
“We have purchased 300 hectares of land (700-800 acres) in the jungle and commenced an extensive building project which will provide accommodation for 1,000 neglected children and schools for 2,000 children, from primary to high school level, workers’ and teachers’ accommodation, training centre, Praise & Worship centre, clinic, bakery, administration building, a nursery for the babies, visitors quarters, radio station, sewing rooms and Bible College.
Apart from children having their physical needs met and receiving an education, they will also be fed and trained spiritually. We equip these young people so that they can return to their villages as well as go into other villages that are unreached, plant churches and bring the gospel to their people.”
Today, we welcome Ps Ronny Heyboer to share and preach the Word of God to inspire us for the work of His Kingdom.
