11-30-2020 - Reports from the Salvation Army and International Christian Concern (ICC) reveal that on November 27, a Muslim man attacked a Salvation Army service post in the central part of the island of Sulawesi. A church and the houses of six of its members were burned down. Three church members were hacked to death, and one church member was burned alive.
According to the ICC report "Around 8 a.m., the Lewonu Lembantongoa Service Post, located in Sigi Regency, Central Sulawesi, set up as an outreach effort by the Salvation Army in Indonesia (Bala Keselamatan), was attacked by the alleged terrorist."
The Salvation Army is asking for prayers “for the family of the victims, for the church, and for the peace of the region.”
Due to the remote location and lack of modern infrastructure, information on the incident is incomplete and the investigation by Indonesian police is slow. It appears that the attacker remains on the loose.
