East Timor and Indonesia:

East Timor and Indonesia:

A pastoral letter from the Co-presiding Bishops of the
Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia.

We join the prayers of many others for the victims of the political crisis in
East Timor and the earthquake in Indonesia.

We know thousands of people all over the world are praying for those affected by these tragedies.

We give thanks for the contributions of all the peacekeeping forces in East Timor, and we remember especially the New Zealand and Fijian soldiers there.

We also give thanks for the work of many aid agencies in Indonesia, including the ministry of ‘Christian World Service’ and the ‘Barnabas Fund’.

We encourage generous contributions to these and other funds.

Our hearts go out to all those who suffer so greatly at this time in both countries.

We seek to pray and act in the name of the God of Justice and Peace.

Archbishop Brown Turei, Archbishop Jabez Bryce, Archbishop David Moxon
