Indonesia is considered a moderate Muslim country, but extremist elements are waging a campaign against the Christian Church.
In some areas, Christianity has hit an all-time high of 20%.......this has resulted in two things:
1. No new church permits are being issued.
2. Agents are actively seeking churches who are in arrears and in danger of being auctioned. Once churches are purchased at auction they will never become a church again.
Friends of ours who currently run a family model orphanage have saved one such church. They paid the arrears and now have until November 8th to pay an additional 5,000 CAD or the church will be auctioned. A buyer from Saudi Arabia is waiting and has indicated he will buy the church.
The 5,000 is desperately needed ASAP. An additional 5,000 is then needed to bring the mortgage into good standing.......but the time frame for that is much longer. The Spirit lead couple who have taken up this cause have qualified for a mortgage on the final 25.000 CAD so once the full 10,000 is paid the church will be safe. This is the "front line" in the battle for the kingdom. There are 250 000 000 people who need Jesus in Indonesia. Extremist elements are waging war against the church. Please join the battle. Every penny counts.
I am only sending this campaign to church friends.......I can't put it out on social media for fear of reprisals; however, Go Fund Me has asked me to include the following information.
I am Stephen Papp, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We met Minto and Hana in Batam and are raising the money for them. They are trying to save a Christian church and all the funds will go to them. All money will go to pay the remaining arrears on the church so it will not be auctioned off. The money is needed before November 8th, 2017. When money is placed in my account, I will transfer it to the Pay Pal account that has been set up for donations to the orphanage they run.
