Church building set ablaze in Indonesia

Churches are being shut down or
destroyed in Aceh, Indonesia. 
A church building was doused with gas and set on fire early in July in the province of Aceh in Indonesia, reports Asia News.

Thankfully the entire building was not lost as congregants arrived to help extinguish the flames, although pews and several musical instruments were consumed by the fire.

Since May, at least 20 house churches or prayer chapels have been closed by government officials in the province and violence is becoming a growing concern (for more, click here).

Please pray!
  • Please pray that the Lord will protect those who love Him as well as their places of worship. 
  • Please pray that authorities in key positions in the province will receive the gospel message and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Pray that Christians in Aceh will be faithful to Christ despite the continuing opposition they face.
