“How Persecution Helped Create the World’s Largest Lutheran Church” - Lensa Gudina, daughter of the founders of the Makane Yesus Church, will tell the story of her parents who were tortured, imprisoned and martyred for their faith by the communist government of Ethiopia. This amazing story will demonstrate how God used this time of persecution to help establish His church, Makane Yesus, the largest Lutheran church body in the world today! It will also help us explore what it means to bear the cross of Christ in our world today.
