The Indonesian government responded to Muslim protests by closing four Pentecostal churches, reports Charisma News. Two months after protests held at the Indonesian Full Gospel Church, Pentecostal Movement Church, Indonesian Bethel Church and Christian New Covenant Church, the churches remain closed. A petition to re-open the churches (or settle on an alternate venue) is being spearheaded by Pastor Oferlin Hia of Christian New Covenant. According to Pastor Hia, at the time of the protests the churches had been applying for permits to hold their gatherings, but were awaiting response from the local government for approval.
