Muslims attack Indonesian pastor

Voice of the Martyrs helps man get new teeth after machete assault
Posted: February 3, 2006

2006 WorldNetDaily.com

"Santoso," a farmer and a pastor for a small village church in Indonesia, was attacked on the way home after sharing Christ with Muslims on a farm in the city of Poso.

He and a friend, both on motorbikes, were hit with a machete wielded by a Muslim who jumped from a bush. The Muslim tried to cut off his head but missed, hitting Santoso in the mouth. He ran to his village holding his face. Because of the attack, Santoso lost 10 teeth and damaged his tongue; his friend's fingers were cut off. This was the third attempt on Santoso's life.

The Voice of the Martyrs medical staff has flown him to Java twice for treatment and is happy to report Santoso now has teeth implants. Before going into his last surgery, he told VOM: "I read Ephesians 1:19 which promises God's great power to us who believe. God sends me power so I can bear suffering. We rejoice that one Muslim has come to Christ."

Christians across the 3,000 inhabited islands of Indonesia are suffering increased attacks, church burnings, imprisonment and threats from angry mobs because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Much of the world would like you to believe that Christians are no longer persecuted, but Santoso would disagree. Now you can stay informed of what is really happening to your Christian brothers and sisters in countries like Indonesia and discover practical ways that you can get involved.
