Lifting up the cross of Jesus Christ over Indonesia and beyond since 1983, Tommy and Poppi Smith are helping bring transformation to Indonesia, the country with the world’s largest Moslem population, through evangelism, leadership development, ministerial enrichment, and benevolence.
Preaching the gospel and praying for miracles are Tommy’s top priorities. Fluent in the Indonesian national language, the Savannah, Georgia, native regularly travels the islands of Indonesia conducting revival crusades. Tommy also serves as regional superintendent over Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.
Through his evangelistic media ministry called Indonesia Under an Open Heaven, Tommy proclaims salvation and the miracle-working power of Jesus Christ on both radio and TV. This effectively takes the Good News into the homes of unreached people who would never enter a church.
Poppi has founded “Poppi’s Kitchen” a feeding ministry that provides quality nutritious meals for 450 children of low-income families twice each month. In”Poppi’s Classroom” she is teaching elementary and middle school students from low-income familes the value of an education. These programs not only encourage societal transformation but spiritual renewal. Such compassionate outreaches build the bridges to those of other faiths.
The Smiths conduct leadership seminars to prepare and equip Indonesians to fulfill the Great Commission in the Spirit of the Great Commandment. Tommy and Poppi seek to place the Bible in the hands of those who don’t have God’s Word, along with helpful devotional material for spiritual growth and enrichment.
