Ο π. Χρυσόστομος Manalu γεννήθηκε στη Σουμάτρα της Ινδονησίας σε προτεσταντική οικογένεια. Έγινε Ορθόδοξος από τον π. Δανιήλ Byantoro και το 1994 ήρθε στην Ελλάδα για μεταπτυχιακές σπουδές στη Θεολογία. Τότε συνδέθηκε ως λαϊκός με την Αδελφότητά μας και χειροτονήθηκε πρεσβύτερος στην Ιερά Μητρόπολη Άρτης. Επέστρεψε στην Ινδονησία το 2002, ίδρυσε την Ορθόδοξη Ιεραποστολήστη Βόρεια Σουμάτρα και διακονεί ως Αρχιερατικός Επίτροπος της Ινδονησίας υπό τη Μητρόπολη Σιγγαπούρης.

It is with confidence that I look upon our youth, the future of the Church, who will graduate from University in 3 years at the latest and will be able to work properly so as to bring a good spirit into our community as well as create economic resources for it...
My brothers, we express our gratitude for your great help and sacrifice, especially for the third installment given for the completion of the construction of our “Theotokos” Hospital at Medan. I believe that 2013 will bring good news for our hospital, because it will be operating properly.
