Each Monday for the next year I will be sharing some data with you all about one country that Greater Europe Mission ministers to in Europe, Asia or Africa. The data I will be getting will be from Operation World. Operation World is an evangelical Christian organization that is concerned about fulfilling the Great Commission. They have compiled information on every country in the world and I want to share it with you so you can be praying for Europe specifically. I will also be using a book put out by Greater Europe Mission called “Prayer for the Nations.” Inside the book it has a guide for each country that makes up Greater Europe. There is much more detail then I will share, but if you want a copy of the book for your own prayers please let me know and I will get you one.
France has a special place in my heart since that is where I went on my first and only mission trip as a youth. Just before high school I went as a mime (yes you read that right and yes, I did pull an imaginary rope and was caught in an imaginary box) with my youth group. That trip started my love for the people of Europe and the land too.
There is a pretty large number of the population that claims to be Christian (38,296,005), but only 1% (600,000) are evangelicals. There has been some recent unity between the evangelical groups within France so that is a very promising development. Unfortunately there are also a lot of people making a living in the occult practices too.
Please join me in prayer for:
Courage and boldness for both the evangelical groups to work together and for new believers to reach out to friends and family.
New workers to go to France to work with the immigrant populations especially in Lille.
My friends the Egli’s and Hawkin’s who are both raising support to go to France as soon as possible.
