Persecution Update May 2009: Indonesia

indonesian-girlThree years ago in Indonesia four Christian teenage girls were attacked by radical Muslims with machetes. Only Noviana Malewa, then age 16, escaped with her life. Today, with a remarkably spiritual outlook, Noviana explains that she continues to pray for the salvation of her attackers. The mother of one of the other girls recently shared how she reached the point of forgiveness: “If my Lord can forgive those who put Him on that cross, then I surely can forgive the men who killed my daughter because I want to be like Jesus.”  Pray that their testimonies will be used to bring Muslims to Christ in Indonesia!
