Mardomio and his family were ordered by Mardomio’s father, the village ‘religious teacher,’ to stop attending church and to return to their traditional beliefs, but they continued to attend church secretly.
When they invited their pastor to their home for a special celebration, Mardomio’s father and some other villagers disrupted the celebration and beat the pastor before running him out of town.
Mardomio’s children were then banned from the local school, and his family was ordered to leave the village. They have had to move several times but continue to meet with other believers for worship.

- Thank the Lord for giving this family the strength to endure such treatment. Pray they will not despair but will continue to remain faithful.
- Pray the Holy Spirit will grant this family and their pastor great wisdom to know how to respond. Ask the Lord for healing, protection and provision.
- Pray the witness of these believers may be used by the Lord to reveal the love of Christ to those who currently oppose Him.
