Persecution in Indonesia draws segment on FamilyNet telecast

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)–The persecution of Christians on Indonesia’s Ambon island will be the subject of a segment on “At Home – Live!” Thursday, Aug. 24.

Hosts Chuck and Jenni Borsellino will interview a Southern Baptist missionary familiar with the situation on Ambon during their morning show, which airs from 11 a.m. to noon a.m. Eastern on the FamilyNet network.

As many as 500,000 Christians have been driven from their homes on Ambon and more than 2,500 have been killed by Muslim “jihad” warriors who have publicly declared they will push all Christians off the island or kill them.

The fighting has forced aid organizations to leave, and food, clothing and medical care are in short supply. Christian leaders in Ambon have said they feel the world is ignoring the crisis.

Consult local listings to determine whether the program will air on broadcast stations or cable outlets in your area.
