Story number 4 for 8 Apr 2003

(Indonesia) — Meanwhile, despite Christian-Muslim violence in Indonesia in recent years, Back to the Bible has opened a ministry office in that country. The effort actually began two years ago with a partnership with Far East Broadcasting Company. Back to the Bible’s David Hansen says this new office will allow the ministry to reach more people. He says this should also be positive for security issues. “When your total front is seen as national and not seen as a U-S corporation or a U-S ministry, it has less potential of violence. Now, it doesn’t mean that Indonesian Christians don’t have any difficulties because they do.” Hansen is encouraging Christians to help financially support this ministry. “We are projecting a cost of about $25,000 a year to do this, which is relatively cheap when you think of the size of audience that you can reach for that investment.”
