The Voice of the Martyrs is reporting in their August 1, 2006 e-mail newsletter of Noviana Malewa, a girl who survived a kidnapping and attack by muslims in Indonesia. Three other teens kidnapped with her were beheaded, but Malewa survived with a sword slash to the face and neck. She is undergoing medical treatment to alleviate her constant pain:

Noviana Malewa, the only girl to escape the malicious beheadings that took place in Indonesia on October 29, 2005, in Central Sulawesi, will receive treatment from VOMedical. The surgery is to alleviate the constant pain she still endures from a sword slash to her face and neck by militant Muslims. Walking through a cocoa plantation on the way to her private Christian high school in Poso Kota subdistrict, 15-year-old Noviana and three fellow students were ambushed by six masked Islamic terrorists. Theresia Morangke, 15, Yarni Sambue, 15, and Alfita Poliwo, 17, were all decapitated and their heads found in bags on the steps of a church and along the road to a police station with the message, “We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents.” Their bodies were discarded at different locations.Give thanks to God that VOMedical will be able to relieve the physical pain that Noviana has suffered. Pray our gracious Father will comfort her mind and heart as He takes away the emotional trauma of painful memories. Pray the Muslim extremists who brutally attacked the girls will repent and seek Jesus who died for the ungodly.
