The church had the opportunity to see what God’s Word says about persecution as they experience it.

Two Mengen ladies decided to attend believers meetings on Easter Sunday and created an uproar in the entire village.

Thankfully very little blood was shed and only a few houses were destroyed but for a bit things were tense.

Typically these two ladies, Kona and Trin-day, attend services held by another religion along with their unsaved family. Their spouses had forbidden them to attend the meetings of the Mengen church so when these two ladies asserted themselves and attended Easter Sunday services, many in the village were angry.

The two men had been on a drinking binge and were not thinking clearly. They blamed the believers and threatened many of them causing some concern.
