Ray Badudu: Worship resident
Hi! I'm Rainanda Divishtaputra Badudu and I am currently a senior at Dordt College studying both General Communications and Worship Arts. I grew up in the bustling city of Jakarta, Indonesia, so Sioux Center has been quite the change! Music has been a passion of mine for 7 years, and I believe that our call as Christians is to know Christ and make Him known to those who believe Him and those who don't. Always looking forward to corporately gathering and worshipping the One who is worthy of it all.
