MUNICH, GERMANY TEAM

Unexpected Opportunity
One Sunday, a woman came to church, acting suspicious—almost paranoid. She wouldn’t even give the pastor her first name. To our surprise, at the end of the service she announced that if the church would sing “Oh Happy Day” the following week, she would return with 40 friends. We gladly agreed to her unusual request, yet remained skeptical that we would see her again. But sure enough, the next week she appeared with 40 friends who were helping her celebrate her birthday—40 friends who by God’s grace heard the gospel that day.

Building Trust
German culture is highly secularized and suspicious of religion. Building relationships to gain people’s trust is a foundational aspect of our ministry. Our team has joined Gospel Church München, a small missionary-led church in Munich, in the hopes of forming a Reformed denomination with other churches in Germany. We have started a Bible study for wives of men in the church, some of whom are not yet believers. Because of the trust and friendship these women have developed, they are increasingly open to learning about the Bible.

Please pray for Gospel Church München, a small missionary-led church in Munich, with which we are working. Pray for the small group Bible study where some of the participants are not yet believers. 


Pray for Europeans who have heard the gospel but are hesitant to fully commit to Christ. Pray that God would draw them to Himself.

Give thanks to God for a movement of the Spirit spreading across Europe opening doors that have been long-shut.

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.
