"A highway shall be there and it shall be called the Holy Way" Isaiah 35:8
Welcome to Jalan Suci Papua
Jalan Suci (The Holy Way, Indonesia) has a long heritage that can be traced back to the very beginnings of the Charismatic movement in the late 1960's. In early 1970's the apostolic ministry of Fr. Edwin Stube from the USA came to West Papua through the apostolic ministry teams sent from Lawang Bible Training Center – East Java.
A Short History. The first team in 1972 comprised Mr. Adi Sutopo, Mr. Timotius Wiryanto, Mr. Saroba Pangaribuan and Miss Henny. The man who welcomed the team was Mr. Mulyawan Sindutomo and his house became central to the team and the Charismatic Movement in Abepura – Jayapura. After several months of Bible training and discipleship in this house, the first young native Papuan people went to many places, cities, and villages to bring the Good News. Those young native people were: Bro. Dolfinus Solossa, Bro. Andreas Athabu, Bro. Julianus Solossa, Bro. Vecky Tumbelaka, Tris Aronggear, Elvis Gunto, and Yan Agaki.
The second apostolic team that visited in 1974 was Mr. Kornelius Darto and Alfonso Tumeon. They came to Jayapura – the capital of West Papua (formerly Irian Jaya) province and went to several villages around Sarmi district in a team with Mr. Rubben Wehauw, Obed Belly, Dolfinus Solossa, Andreas Athabu as the local apostolic team. The third apostolic team in 1975 was Timotius, Adul Rohim, and Philipus Sukamto. In 1976, Ester Sitorus moved from Lawang to Jayapura to work with Philipus Sukamto, but she suffered from Malaria fever and died in April 1977. As result of these apostolic team ministries from Lawang, thousands have received the Lord Jesus as their personal savior and many have experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The apostolic Ministry of Fr. Edwin Stube and his young Indonesian co-workers has brought forth a great transformation throughout Indonesia, especially in the island of Papua.
