Home Cannot Be Used for Church

Nov. 12, 2020 | Indonesia

A Christian in Indonesia has been told by local officials that she cannot renovate her house if she intends to use it for Christian purposes. The local village council of Ngastemi village sent a letter to the believer telling her that her Christian activities had caused unrest in the village. “It is prohibited to hold Christian meetings and/or prayer meetings … in order to create a harmonious atmosphere between people, especially in Karangdami colony,” the letter said. Pray that this woman along with other believers in her village will come to an agreement with authorities about practicing their faith.
