Hasan is a Muslim background believer and a former mentor at an Islamic boarding school in South Sumatra. Four years ago, he, his wife and their children converted to Christianity through the outreach of brother Adi (a VOM-supported evangelist). Since then, Hasan has been sharing the gospel with Muslim leaders and several have come to faith.
About a month ago, he prayed for a sick Muslim woman in the name of Jesus Christ; the woman was healed. Through this event, the Muslim woman, and her husband both became believers in Jesus.
On hearing this, the woman’s extended family members became angry. They asked the local Muslim mullah to visit her to try to persuade her and her husband to reconvert to Islam. They refused. The family members reported the case to the police.
As a result, Hasan was arrested last Monday. He was questioned and then released.
He was summoned again last Wednesday for further questioning and there he was advised he will need to attend a meeting with the Indonesian Islamic Council, community leaders and the head of police.
Hasan’s faith in Jesus Christ is very strong.
