Post-Soviet eastern Europe contrasts starkly to the wealth and liberalism of Scandinavia in the west; the relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle compares vividly against the dignity of Great Britain.

Eleven percent of the world’s population lives among Europe’s famous landmarks, but only one percent are evangelical Christians.

Pray for awakening in the European church as believers embrace anew their mission to comfort those in need and share the good news of Christ.
