When you hear the word Irish one of the few words that pop into your heads is Catholic. As of recent times though, that is becoming less and less the case. While Ireland is still 92% Christian, the actuality is that more and more Irish are moving further from the church than ever before. Things that are typically associated with the Good News of the Gospel are being viewed as part of an irrelevant and immoral attempt to control people. This is making evangelism more difficult.
GEM missionaries are asking for prayer for:
Irish evangelical leaders to become empowered and envisioned to connect with people in their local communities.
Effective outreach among the “new Irish” immigrants.
Current missionaries to learn the best way to share the Gospel with those who are struggling to overcome their negative views.
