SOUTHEAST BERLIN, GERMANY TEAM

The Stereotype and the Truth
In postmodern former East Berlin, after years of communism, skeptics look everywhere for the truth—but less than 1 percent look in a church. One woman searching for truth enrolled in a New Age class in Berlin that bashed Christianity. The teacher described Christians as deceptive and mean, but the woman remembered her Christian friend who was always so kind and honest. She knew the teacher was completely wrong about Christians. Throwing out all of her New Age books, she decided to go with this friend to one of our churches instead. She sensed that Christians held the answers she sought.

Changing Biases
We have partnered with a German church plant in southeast Berlin, supporting the German nationals who lead the church. Our church serves the surrounding community through English classes, discussion groups for young mothers, a youth group, and partnering with local government officials to address key social issues. By befriending and serving the people of the community, we are slowly breaking down the biases Germans have against Christianity by demonstrating the love of Christ and the truth of the gospel.

Thankfulness in Full

If our friend has taught us anything, it is that “abounding in thanksgiving” swallows up all that we have lost or left behind.

Praise God for breaking through barriers in Germany and producing long-sought-after fruit! Pray for new believers to grow in their faith and lead others to Christ.

Praise God for opening doors in Germany for us to minister to refugees in a local refugee home. Pray for refugees to grasp the love of Christ.

Pray for MTW's ministry to refugees in Greece, Germany, Ukraine, Uganda, Panama, and the U.S.

Pray specifically for the refugees in Berlin with whom our missionaries are building relationships. Pray that these refugees would come to faith if they do not know Christ.

Pray for missionaries seeking to minister to those who are critical and hard to love. Pray that missionaries would love their neighbor as Christ loved us.
