Herrenhut, Saxon, Germany  (p. 18, 19) 

The Moravian Brethren Church came into being in the 1720’s when Count Nikolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf 1700-1760 a pietist gave refuge to persecuted Hussites from Moravia and Bohemia. They built the village of Herrenhut as an administrative centre. They promoted zealous mission work and consequently spread to other parts of the world. Where possible they gave a helping hand to the existing Christian Church.

During the 1780’s when the Hutterites from Vishenka tried to rescue their imprisoned brethren in Moravia and Slovakia the Moravian Brethren gave them a helping hand.

When the Mennonites in Brenkenhoffs-walde needed help the neighbouring Moravians came to their aid.
