Alliance Church Burned in Indonesia

The following is from an Alliance worker in Indonesia, April 16, 2011.

I just received a text from one of the GKII/C&MA pastors in Enarotali. His church building, in the process of being rebuilt, was burned down this morning by members of a group that broke away from the C&MA. This is the sixth time his church has been destroyed by arson in the last five years.

Twenty-eight GKII/C&MA churches have been burned by those who used to call church members brothers. Please pray for peace. Also, pray that members of the Yerusalem Church in Enarotali will not respond in kind. We met with the pastor last month and were humbled by his loving, forgiving spirit.

Please pray that the local officials, who read a public statement in February that criminal acts would be punished, will uphold justice.
