The shocking moment that a man stormed into a church in New Zealand on Sunday and demanded that he speak with his leaders was recorded on video.
Jenny and Samuel Kaufononga were at the Free Wesleyan Church in Tonga, southern Auckland, with their children and cousins when the man disrupted service.
Samuel stood at the front door of the church when the man suddenly came in.
& # 39; He said he wanted to talk to our leader and I tell him not to go in … I keep him out and ask him why and he says, "I want to talk to your leader, I want to talk to you leader talk ", & Kaufononga said to the New Zealand messenger.
He said he knocked the man to see if he had weapons, but before he could stop him, the man began to kiss his hand and pushed past him.
In the church the Reverend held the sacrament, a religious ceremony in which the parishioners are expected to remain seated and still.
The intruder went to the front of the church, where he pointed to the cross and & # 39; Jesus & # 39; cried before trying to kiss the heads of the elders and shake their hands.
In images of the incident, the man can be seen in front of the congregation while holding his hands in the air while shocked parishioners watch.
