    Boquist and Walbom in Orebro, Sweden

    In Orebro Laen (county) this work spread until older persons were moved to proclaim the message. Then the civil authorities, instigated by the priests of the “established church,” arrested two young boys, Walbom, eighteen years of age, and Ole Boquist, fifteen years of age, saying they would make a public example of them. They whipped their bare backs with birch rods, and placed them, with their bleeding wounds, in Orebro prison. When these wounds healed, they took them out of the prison, demanding of them, “Will you cease preaching this doctrine?” Though they beat them with rods the second time, opening their wounds afresh, all the answer they could obtain was, “We will preach the preaching that the Lord bids us.” Through the intercession of a prominent lady parishioner in Orebro, King Oscar I. told the authorities to let those boys out of the prison, and to let that people alone. So the victory for the truth was gained in Sweden.GSAM 140.3
