FILL ‘ER UP Raffle
FILL ‘ER UP PROMISES WIN-WIN OPPORTUNITY
STL International is raising much-needed funds for its outreach in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia and – at the same time – help some fortunate supporters through a raffle which will award approximately 1,000 gallons of gasoline to winners.
Fill ‘Er Up raffle prizes include Costco cash cards worth 500 gallons* of gasoline, 300 gallons* and 200 gallons* plus a Bushnell computerized star locator talking telescope and a 32-inch flat screen television. In all, there will be five winners in the drawing. A generous long-term supporter has made the raffle possible.
The Fill ‘Er Up raffle tickets are now available for $5 each. The winning tickets will be drawn on November 20.
Funds from the raffle will be directed to the Lord’s mission outreach in Indonesia, especially the present work with young people through small group fellowships in Kupang, Jakarta and on the island of Bali. We see the Lord moving among these young men and women as we disciple and raise up leaders.
You can participate in this fund raising effort by mailing your check for tickets at $5 apiece to STL International, PO Box 839, Sun City, CA 92586, postmarked no later than November 15, 2011. You do not need to be present to win. We will mail the numbered ticket stubs back to you. Please retain these in order to claim any prize.

In the beautiful village of Blimbing Sari on the island of Bali, Yohanes Anakota married Eka Setianingsih on October 10, 2010, with family and friends gathered around. Yohanes’ “family” included several American members of the ministry team.
Yohanes chose Randy and Debbie Denham to serve as his parents for the wedding ceremony. That choice reflected the strong, deep relationships that the seven-year-old ministry has developed.
Yohanes has served with the ministry for five years and is currently directing its activities in Bali. The Lord has grown Yohanes into a Godly man and teacher of His word. Just weeks after his wedding, he graduated with a Masters Degree from a college on Java.
Others in the ministry are also furthering their educations. Peter, the first Indonesian staffer to attend Bible college outside the country, is in the Philippines. The Indonesian doctor, Sessy, is studying to be a surgeon.
Raising up Indonesian ministry leaders is an important part of the ministry’s long term mission.

Currently praying and working for the necessary support for the move, the Yarbrough’s hope to move to Kupang and work among the home fellowships in West Timor, teaching leaders and generally reaching out to Indonesians who need a personal relationship with the Savior.
