By: yesHeis

Ivan Kabul is recognised by many in Indonesia as an entrepreneur and health influencer. He has a desire to develop young people and make an impact in the sphere of education.

He established Fish Youth Center in Jakarta where students can receive tutoring and keep fit through sports programs and access to sports facilities. It is a place for young people to grow in knowledge, explore their talents, and refine their character.

I like to see my life as an enlightened fire-lighter. We can share fire when our fire is ignited first. From various events that God allowed to happen in my life, He has ignited my fire.” — Ivan

IvanIt is this passion and unyielding spirit that Ivan believes in sharing with people, to see them experience a bright future.

“Like an adventure, there are always surprises that God gives that make life more exciting, meaningful and impactful.” — Ivan

The Fish team interact with young people experiencing many different struggles and they have the opportunity of sharing with them the love of God. Ivan is still blown away by the privilege of being used by God to impact lives.

“Trusting God is a good thing, but when He’s also trusts us, that’s just incredible.” — Ivan

This mission, through quality education, is ultimately about seeing young people come to know the hope and life that Jesus brings, and igniting a fire amongst the future leaders to impact the nation.

Ivan continually asks God to guide him as he seeks to impact young people and live in a way that reveals God’s love to everyone around. Let’s believe for the same in our own lives and trust in the plan that God has for each one of us.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.” — 2 Timothy 1:7–8
