Nashville, TN -- April 15, 2010 - Ben and Bill Kristijanto, founders of Bread of Stone recently visited their homeland, Indonesia to do mission work with Scavengers (people surviving from trash). Little did they know, the tugging at their heart that would happen. As they worked with their hands helping people, the command that God gave to take care of your own, came to light - thus forming "The Light Project."
"The Light Project was something we started to reach out to the Muslim community in Indonesia," said Ben Kristijanto, lead singer. "We are working in partnership with a local church in Surabaya to help spread the love of Christ one community at a time, by helping them with every day necessities such as food, transportation, and to just be there as a family in Christ. Our visit there was nothing short of wonder. They have shown us how Jesus truly is the answer for us all. Even with having no worldly possession, the people there feels as though they have everything."
Going above and beyond in their giving to support the ministry of working with the Scavengers, Bread of Stone believes they are called not to ask their fans for support, instead, the band will donate an extra 10% from all of their merchandise sales.
Bread of Stone is partnering with Christ in Action, a 501c3 organization that will monitor all the donated funds for "The Light Project."
Bread of Stone consists of Ben Kristijanto (lead vocals, guitar, keys), Bill Kristijanto (lead guitar), Tim Barnes (bass) and Krislyn Woolley (drums). For more info, including tour dates, music and video clips, please visit http://www.BreadOfStone.com.
