Before leaving Boston to return to Indonesia, he planted a church! He was the first of his family to experience salvation, and was eager to share his faith with family and friends. So he returned to indonesia long enough to see some of them become believers.
He returned to the U.S. to begin a ministry to exchange students on five university campuses in the Seattle area. He began his church with mostly Indonesian students, but is also reaching out to other Asian groups and has a growing congregation of young adults!
The really exciting thing about pastor Darmono's ministry to exchange students is that he is evangelizing these students and preparing them to go back to their home countries as ambassadors of Christ to spread the gospel to their own people!
