 Two Christians Killed in Sword Attack


Two Christians Killed in Sword Attack (Indonesia)

Two Protestant Christians were killed on October 13 when attackers wielding swords stopped them on a crowded street in Jono Oge, a village near Palu. One man, Yahya Yuta Jama, died immediately of neck wounds. The other, Sakeas Tesa, died on his way to the hospital. According to AsiaNews, police are pursuing leads but were unable to give details on who was behind the attack or the motives.
While police have been taking action to suppress militant Islamic groups operating in the Sulawesi region of Indonesia, Christians continue to face sporadic violent attacks.

Pray that the peace that formerly existed between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia will be restored.
Pray that Christians in Indonesia will demonstrate the love and grace of God, despite the opposition they face.
Pray for the families of these men who were so brutally murdered.
