Be Aware: Europe

GEM - Greater Europe Mission

I recently read "Secret Believers: What Happens When Muslims Believe" and learned that often times people from Muslim background will leave their countries and go to Europe for school and while they are there there is a chance that they will hear about the Gospel and the truth goes with them back to their home-lands. In other situations Muslims will flee their families and countries because they have become aware of the truth of the Gospel and their lives are threatened if they remain in their own country and near their family, but when they immigrate then there is an opportunity for them to be discipled. I suppose there are similar opportunities in Europe to share the Gospel with or disciple people of many other religious backgrounds too.

One of my dear Ellerslie sisters, Kelsey N, is in France for about a year with GEM. Pray for her. Pray for the missionaries there. Pray for open doors to speak truth into the lost lives of the people of France.


Revelation 3:7-13
King James Version (KJV)
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    This country (whole continent) is so dark. You can feel it. The battle to win souls for Him is sooo hard, it's a battle only HE can win. Praise the Lord that He is in us. I'm eager to see Him work in France and the rest of Europe. It's been a long time since there was revival here.
