One child was killed and three others were critically injured on Nov. 13 when a terrorist threw a Molotov-style bomb into the Oikumene Church in East Kalimantan. The attacker lobbed the bomb into the church yard as the Sunday service concluded, critically injuring four young children playing in the yard. Intan Olivia Marbun, 3, died of severe burns at the hospital in the early morning hours of Nov. 14. The other children, Alvero Aurelius, 4, Triniti Hutaya, 3, and Anita Kristobel Sihotang, 2, were all severely burned and remain in the hospital. Authorities confirmed that the bomber, Muhammad Aceng Kurnia, is a convicted terrorist who spent more than three years in prison for an attack in 2012. Please pray for Intan’s grieving family and for healing for the three children who were badly burned.
