Hundreds of Christians in suburbs outside Jakarta, Indonesia are hoping to be able to celebrate Christmas in their two churches which have been sealed off to prevent worship inside the churches. Gunmen in central Somalia on Saturday (Dec. 8) killed an underground Christian who had been receiving death threats for leaving Islam.
