Christian Indonesians Live In NJ Church's Sanctuary to Avoid Deportation
This Christmas marks Day 295 for a central New Jersey church playing host to a group of Indonesians living within its sanctuary.

Tonight, these men, with their wives and American-born children, will enjoy a Christmas Eve feast by dining on traditional dishes from their homeland. Exotic aromas will waft through the Reformed Church of Highland Park's neighborhood, as the men barbecue marinated chicken kebobs to be served with a cumin and garlic peanut sauce....
