Indonesian children in school
Dewi is an Indonesian girl who was born into a Muslim family. In junior high, she began to attend an Islamic school and stayed in the school’s dormitory. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.)
Early one school year, Dewi had some problems getting along with the girls in her dorm. She went home to her parents’ house, hoping to get some peace and quiet. But her parents argued and quarreled all the time, so Dewi had no peace at school or at home.
One day, Dewi’s parents started a big argument. She went to her bedroom and put on headphones to listen to the radio through her cell phone. She wanted to drown out her parents’ voices. The radio got stuck on one channel. Dewi tried to change it, but it would not change. The channel was a Christian channel!
