Keith and I will be going on a mission trip to Borneo in March for two weeks to build two churches.
Nearly ten years ago Upper Columbia Academy sent its first group of short term missionaries to the Iban people in the jungles of Borneo to build a church. From this small beginning, the opportunity for ministry in Borneo has increased rapidly. Because UCA has returned each spring break to the same area, we have established an ongoing relationship with the Borneo Mission and its church members. This partnership has had a compounding effect. In fact, since UCA students have begun building churches, Borneo youth have begun similar evangelism and building projects. According to Gilbert Tan (the local mission leader) baptisms have tripled in Borneo the past two years, and the demand for more churches is exploding.
