"Any weapon whatever that will be formed against you will have no success." (Isaiah 54:17)

Decades ago, in a small mountainous country in southeastern Europe, there was a fearless band of Christians. An atheistic Communist government did its best to crush them. Yet, torture, labor camps, and media attacks could not stamp them out. Who were they? Jehovah's Witnesses in Albania. Though meeting together and preaching were extremely difficult, their persistence over decades has exalted and honored Christianity and brought praise to Jehovah's name. Last year at the branch facilities, a long-time faithful Witness said: "No matter how hard Satan tries, he keeps losing and Jehovah keeps winning!" History confirms that nothing that Satan's world can do will ever put a stop to the worship of Jehovah God by his dedicated servants.

*I don't have any experiences about Albania ready to post today, but I'll do some extra research and find some to post, coming up.
