Stories

In a move that was inspired by the action of the Apostles in the book of Acts, a missionary dares to walk on a sacred land amongst the Karo Batak. The land was said to contain evil spirits and anyone who walked on it will die. To the surprise of the villagers, the missionary did not die showing that Christ was above all. Many came to faith in Christ because of this action.
