Pastor Youssef Shares Gospel in Muslim Indonesia

Ad Feedback

Indonesia is home to more than 200 million Muslims -- that's nearly 13 percent of the global Muslim population. So when the preparations began for a visit to Jakarta by Atlanta Pastor Michael Youssef, it wasn't an everyday occurrence.

For three days, with music and prayer, Youssef brought a message of God's love to Indonesians in the city of Jakarta.

Hundreds of thousands arrived, some facing persecution.

Pastor Youssef says he was amazed by "the hundreds of people that responded to the Gospel message by coming forward -- dangerous as it was for some of them -- and yet they were fearless."

"The love of Christ captured so many of them that hundreds were coming in every one of those three nights," Youssef said.

One Indonesian pastor brought 300 people to the gathering even though he was threatened with death by extremists.

"And the man, with joy of the Lord, said, 'What can they do to me?'" Youssef recalled. "And so night after night he would bring folks in to hear the Gospel message, some of them for the first time."

Organizers say a thousand people came to Christ during the meetings, and the hope is that millions more in the Muslim world will hear the good news on television and the Internet.
