A VOICE OF THE MARTYRS EXCLUSIVE REPORT:
Christian Mother and Daughter Escape After 18 Months of Captivity
Jakarta, Indonesia, June 27, 2002-- Adel and her 10-year-old daughter, Christien, recently escaped after being kidnapped by a band of radical Muslims in the Maluka Islands of Indonesia. Adel told The Voice of the Martyrs, "I could hear the screams of my son, mother, and mother-in-law, as they were cut to pieces by the Jihad (Islamic) warriors. Christien and I were taken hostage and I was forcibly married to one of the Muslim soldiers.
I've never known such horror. Only my faith in Jesus Christ and love for my real husband, Methu, kept me alive."
Adel and her daughter escaped after 18 months of captivity and were rejoined with her husband, Methu. Adel also gave birth to a girl, Sarah, while in captivity. Adel's life remains in danger as 1,000 Jihad warriors have been rallied to bring her back to the Muslim man she was forced to marry. Adel said, "I have forgiven them and pray for their salvation but we are in fear for our lives. They have offered $5,000.00 for our capture. Please also remember to pray for six of my Christian friends who are still in captivity today."
