In August 2017 we were with our family during our holiday in Indonesia guests at Ronald and Barbara in Semarang. They showed us some projects that were done by Awas Kaki. We visited the soccer club, de dorm were the players stay and we saw two elementary schools. Our children (15-24 years old) and we too were very impressed of the beautiful work that in difficult circumstances is done. The enthusiasm of the children, but also of teachers and soccercoaches was special to see. Their thankfulness for the support they got was great! For us a special experience; it taughed us that there is more beyond heaven and earth than the glamor of a far away flight holiday. Lots of succes with the beautiful work that you are doing Ronald and Barbara and again thanks for your hospitality.

"During my stay at Ronald and Barbara I became very impressed by their involvement with the local people in their envirenmont. It is so good to see how much time and energy they put in helping and accompany of (mostly) youth. It was very interesting to see how high the level raised of the local club due to coach Ronald. I enjoyed their hospitality. Because of them I have met some interesting people. Beside that they gave me so much knowledge about the country and tips about places that are interesting to visit (and that you don't find in Lonely Planets). I had a very special time and recommend everyone to visit them before seeing more of the country."

"We know Ronald since Klaas played as a professionel soccerplayer and Ronald ministered to him as a chaplain at "Sports Witnesses". He told us already that his heart wanted to Indonesia, Java and especially Semarang. During two months we lived together with them and we have seen what they are doing. It is so impressive to see 'Pak Ronald' and 'Ibu Barbara' are one with the community. We have seen with our own eyes how they invest in young lives, invite them weekly and build relationships. We won't ever forget this trip!"
