Taman Eden, an SDA School in Jimbaran, Bali.
Taman Eden school is a school managed by Nusa Dua SDA church with the commitment to provide the best services for its surrounding communities. Trained and experienced teachers ceaselessly seek God’s wisdom in doing their best for the students’ academic achievements and for their physical, mental and spiritual growth and health.
The development of Taman Eden school was made possible only by help of God. Initially the church only had little fund to erect a small building to cater for a few preschool students. As the answer to prayers, God moved some people to help the church build a better school for the students, this include members of Nusa Dua church and the group of brother Greg Whyte and Medgee Whyte from Perth who came with their friends, shared their valuable resources and time and their own time and energy building the two-story construction for the school. The school eventually started operating. In its first year, with only 5 students (back in 2013), several young people from church dedicated their time to teach these children, including Lyan, Addy, and Dana (who is now the principal of the school), the challenges seem overwhelming and the resources are so limited, but in their feebleness of earthly qualifications in many things, they continue to seek God’s wisdom and asked the Lord to lead the way. Harry Tandjung who initiated the idea of building this school, and the rest of the church members did their best to help it survive. Now we have twenty four students attending this school (as per January 2017). God has opened a way for this church to minister to the community through education.
We pray that this school will continue to be a blessing for many more people in years ahead as we wait for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us continue to pray and help in any way we can to make this happen. We would also like to extend our greatest appreciation to all donators both at home and overseas, including the higher organization (East Java Conference) who have been giving their full support for Taman Eden school. May God continue to bless you all, especially in things you do for the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Junior High School (Sekolah Menengah Pertama)
Given the scope of the license issued by the regional department of education, our foundation is eligible to conduct Junior High School-level education. With earnest prayers, commitment and dedication of all involved at school and church, including all members of the church board and our pastor, Taman Eden has taken an action of faith to commence this middle-school-level education (or the so called Sekolah Menengah Pertama) this year. Enrollment is set to start on April 24th, 2017.
With God all things are possible. We have gone through many challenges in the first years of the school; official administration-wise, character-building, human resources, financial, and dealing with children who require special attention which all together seemed like a huge mountain standing in the way but we can see clearly now that this is a call that we have to repond to, a mission through which God may reach many more children and families through what we can do at this school. With all the experience we had, and the divine guidance He had given to all our teachers and staff we have a hope that the light will shine brighter to many more people around this school.
