Christianity seemed defeated until the latter decades of the 10th Century. Animistic Vikings invaded Western Europe with little resistence, burning churches and monasteries, along with precious hand-written copies of the Scriptures. The Magyar Empire pressed in from the east. Muslim armies moved north with their zeal for Allah. During the 16th Century, the Reformation revitalized the Church to become a force for world evangelization and the last 250 years the gospel advanced worldwide, but conversely, has declined in Europe today. European political ideologies such as humanism, secularism, socialism, Marxism, fascism, Nazism, and armoral capitalism have all contributed to such evils as global wars, colonialism and oppression. The 29 countries of Western Europe are going through a period of unprecedented peace but, with political and economic integration, there is also ethnic fragmentation. Many of Europe’s great cities today hold in their straining arms a multitude of cultures and languages, coming drawn by education and opportunities or fleeing from war, famine, economic deprivation, and sometimes horrifying situations. The situation is both rife with problems and rich with opportunities. And, Western European churches are usually empty edifices filled with more dust than worshipers. Two hundred twenty-seven least-reached people groups live here. From tiny Gibralter with 74% of its population least-reached to France, Western Europe’s greatest challenge in terms of the gospel with a population of over 7 million least-reached people in 41 different people groups, now is the time for bringing the gospel to those searching for answers in Western Europe.
Finding The Father
They are far from the Lord due to many reasons. Pray that they will turn their hearts to their creator who can give them Eternal life and will find the Father who seeks them continually.
Firmness Of Faith
For the few Fulani believers, may they continue to grow in their faith in the Lord and for those who are translating the scriptures into languages needed for these 234 Least Reached Groups.
For others to come among the Fulani and these 234 peoples of Western Europe who will reach out to them and can give a true testimony of the Lord to them.
Fruit That Remains
that those who have heard the Word and are now far away will come back to the Lord and come to know Him fully, and for wisdom and clarity for those who are sharing the Gospel among the Fulani and others of these 234 groups.
Fullness Of Life
For good health for the Fulani as they often die at an early age due to malnurishment and sickness in their homeland; pray also for those who are seeking to minister to their physical needs and for all these 234 ethnic groups in Western Europe to find that fullness of life Jesus offers them.
