Missions - Timor Leste
Since 2004, Agape Baptist Church has been partnering with Shallom School to provide Timorese children with a good education. Given Timor Leste’s violent past, the hope is for a new history for the nation to be written by a new generation of Timorese with character and leadership. The redemptive key perhaps is education – not just academically but spiritually. This instruction is established upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only power for true transformation – from the major strongholds of violence, hatred and unforgiveness. Agape Baptist Church’s and Shallom School’s deep desire is for the gospel to bring shalom to a nation without shalom.
