Magelang Branch

Welcome to the Magelang Branch! We visited the Branch for the first time on Sunday which is now possible with our car. We have been to the city once in October to visit the Elders, but it was on a week-day so we needed to meet the Branch. This is the front. The panels are security doors which most store fronts have. Swing these to the side and you see the front door and the sign, "Gereja Yesu Kristus dari Orang-orang Suci Zaman Akhir."
Say hello to the Branch. That is President Dadang Supriyadi top row left and his wife Suwartini, bottom left with the flowered scarf. His counselor is to his left and that is the president's son, Dedi, next in line - he is the "organist." You can also see Bono and to his left is a visiting member from the High Council. The sister in front of the buleh elder, Elder Townsend (companion is Elder Marijanto), is the RS President and the three girls are her daughters.
This is to to give you a better idea of the size of the chapel. You enter the front of the building and there are two classrooms on the right as you walk toward the back of the building. At the back is an alcove with a cupboard, a sink, and a table with a water dispenser, and the entrance to the bathroom which extends under the stairs. Passing the "kitchen" you proceed up the stairs to the second floor where the chapel is located - that's the entry way on the right. You can see two of the five rows of pews. At the back of the chapel is the Branch President/Clerk's office (which looks out over the entrance).
