Two Evangelists Arrested and Beaten in Banda Aceh
Two evangelists were arrested and beaten in Sumatra island, Indonesia. The evangelists, Roy and Ribur, were accused of persuading a Muslim woman whom they met, to be baptized. When Roy and Ribur had met her, they asked her to join their church. Subsequently, they went to her house on her invitation for further discussion. But when the evangelists mentioned Jesus Christ, the woman appeared confused and went outside to talk with her neighbor. She eventually went to the village head to report that there were Christians in the village. Roy and Ribur were then brought before the village head, who confiscated their bags containing gospel tracts, a list of new believers and a water bottle that was believed to be used for baptisms. News of the “forced” baptism quickly spread, and a mob that had gathered outside the village leader’s office began to beat Roy and Ribur. Police intervened and arrested the two evangelists. Pray for Roy and Ribur, and pray that God will soften the hearts of the people in Banda Aceh.
