Europe is arguably one of the most forgotten mission fields of our day. Once at the epicenter of the sending church, today it is the region with the least number of evangelical believers at only 2.5%. Over 36% of the countries in Europe have less than 1% evangelicals. The church in Europe has the lowest growth rate at 1.1% annually. There is an intense battle for the gospel being fought in this region. Let's pray for Europe and our missionaries in this region. The Girgentis visiting us this month are reaching the Mediterranean rim through various ministries including a Bible school, translation of Christian books, and church planting. We look forward to hearing more of an update from Mauro Girgenti on Sunday, August 24!
