Description of the Area:
Christians in Indonesia face ongoing, daily difficulties. In August, Muslim extremists burned two churches, and authorities downplayed the arson by saying the buildings were not real churches because they were “only made of board.” In another case of oppression by elected officials, a city mayor proclaimed that Christian churches cannot be built on streets with Muslim names. Since Indonesia is overwhelmingly Muslim, this leaves few options for Indonesian Christians.

An Indonesia-based human rights group, The Setara Institute for Peace and Democracy, reports that attacks on religious freedom in Indonesia have more than tripled in the past two years. As of July 2011, the group had documented 99 cases of religious conflict or violence compared with 94 cases in 2010, 18 in 2009 and 17 in 2008. The report includes cases of physical abuse, interference with religious groups’ prayers and the burning of houses of worship.

Despite these increased difficulties, Indonesian Christians remain resolute in sharing the gospel with their friends and neighbors.

Description of the Operation:
The rising threat against Indonesian Christians is not enough to stop their evangelistic efforts. They continue to reach across social and political boundaries to share the gospel with Muslim friends and neighbors.

But they need your help!

By joining other believers around the world in the latest Bibles Unbound operation, you can help ensure that 5,000 Bibles make it into the hands of men, women and children in Indonesia. Our partners in Indonesia are already collecting the names of those who will receive a Bible, but before the Bibles can be delivered, they must be sponsored.

Join this Bibles Unbound operation today to help spread the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout Indonesia. Then, join us in praying that God will soften the hearts of the country’s Muslim majority.
