Tasik ministers to Indonesian populations in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Indonesian-Americans number roughly 100,000, and there are also many non-citizen immigrants in the United States on work or student visas. While many of these are Christian, there is also a large percentage who are Muslim or Buddhist. As such, reaching them is an important goal.

Tasik has called on the people he ministers to, as well as the Christians in Indonesia, to pray for the United States in the face of the political and civil tension that has been building for the past several years.

Committing one nation to pray for another is a daunting task, but also one of importance. The Bible says that “where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” [Matthew 18:20,] and that such unified prayers are things of power indeed. So when a nation or people group commits to such a prayer, God cannot help but hear and respond. As they pray for us in our times of trial, let us also pray for Indonesia.
