In 2014, we reported that a dead woman in Indonesia had been raised back to life by Elijah Challenge-trained disciples of Jesus Christ before a roomful of mourning Muslims. On September 5, 2015 the home where this now-believing woman and her father and step-mother had been living was completely destroyed by fire. Below are photos of the ruins.
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)
With this incident, the entire board of our ministry here (which oversees the local work here) longs to be able to assist them in rebuilding their home. For that we want to invite anyone whose heart is touched to help us provide housing assistance for their family. We hope that you will give prayerful support and encouragement to this young woman and her father and stepmother as well as their extended family who have become believers in Jesus Christ.
Pray also for those who burned down the house to be convicted of their sin and to become a followers of Jesus Christ. This event will not stop the powerful preaching of the good news in this place. Please pray that other brethren in Christ who hear about this will not be discouraged, fearful that something terrible will happen to them too. May they all stay strong in Christ.”
