The members have been hit with boards, stabbed locked out of their actual meeting place, ordered to leave by armed policeman and saw their meeting place burned to the ground. The report is that they have all, all 50 or so members, have remained faithful and moved each time the gathering had to be rescheduled or relocated for safety sake.
The most recent attacks on this congregation came on July 10th and August 8th, 2010 while the members were clearing weeds from a piece of land they were going to use as a worship site. It was reported that a Muslim group was responsible for the attacks. Two of the church pastor's were reported beaten by the mob. A banner was carried by those in the mob that read, "The Muslim community rejects the building of a church in Mustika Jaya."
What would you do? How loyal and attached are you to your local body of believers which gathers weekly? Would you move to six different locations in various pastures and fields in order to gather for worship? Would you endure beatings by police and mobs?
