Instagram post 18087509983275262 Have you ever wondered how Greater Europe Mission came to be?

Perhaps you've heard of Bob Evans - and no, I don't mean the beloved American restaurant chain! I'm referring to WWII US Navy Chaplain Bob Evans who dedicated his life to serving up the food of the Gospel!

In 1944, Bob Evans was injured by a mine in Southern France. During his recovery, he discovered the majority of locals did not have a personal relationship with Jesus and found his calling; to bring the Gospel to Europe. A band of passionate missionaries, lay-people, and leaders took to Bob’s vision and saw Greater Europe Mission expand from its evangelistic roots in France to reach across Western and Eastern Europe and even North Africa.

Through this legacy, GEM partners with scores of ministries across Europe, from Bible-seminaries to 1000-year-old churches, and Christian camps to coffee shops, are each impacting the peoples of Europe today with the authentic and relevant Word of the Gospel!

Did you know that only about 1.3 percent of Spaniards claim to follow Christ?

Single religions have strongly dominated Spain since the eighth century. Following seven centuries of Muslim rule, Roman Catholicism became the official religion. Although religious freedom was officially established in 1978, many Spaniards remain suspicious of any group that is not Roman Catholic. While the majority of the people still consider themselves to be Catholic, at least in name, many view religion as one of the greatest problems of their history and soundly reject it in any form.

Take heart though - Spaniards are slowly but steadily turning to Christ. The number of Protestant church members has increased sixteen-fold over the past 70 years!

We invite you to join with us as we pray for Spain!

• Pray for GEM’s missionaries in Spain as they work faithfully to minister to the people around them. Pray also that God will call more Spaniards and missionaries to minister to the people of Spain.
• Pray that the Lord will call students at the Spanish Bible institutes to serve sacrificially and in partnership with other churches.
• Pray that Christ-centered evangelical churches will grow their vision of what God can do in Spain through a unified body of believers.

Instagram post 17890666004172288 Would you consider partnering with us in a worthy endeavour?

The Camino de Santiago, the Way of St James, is a trail with historical Christian pilgrimage roots. It attracts over 350,000 pilgrims each year from around the world.

Many of these modern-day pilgrims walk the 800km route through the Spanish heartland in search of spiritual transformation. These seekers come to the trail to escape from their everyday life and connect with a side of themselves that may have lain dormant for decades!

Located on the main trail, often called the French Way, is a quaint café run by GEM workers, Wes and Sherry Koop. The Pilgrim's Oasis Café serves approximately 1,300 people with diverse backgrounds each year, and provides an opportunity for the gospel along a trail that is more often than not met with new age prophets peddling false hope—crystals, idols, and relics—you name it.

In addition to their café, the Koops are in the process of expanding their ministry along the Camino by adding a coffee truck that will serve people in the local park of their village. By doing so, they believe that they will have a greater opportunity to reach their local community, as well as the additional 38,700-58,700 pilgrims each year who do not venture through the doors of their café.

So, I ask you again - would you consider partnering with us in a worthy endeavour? We hope you will!

We invite you to join us in prayer as the Koops embark on this new ministry venture. Pray that the Lord would supply all of their needs and bring about much fruit for His great glory! Pray also that the Lord would soften the hearts of the local community - a people whose lineage endured much hardship under the dictatorship of Franco, ultimately leading to negative thoughts and emotions associated with religion.

Finally, we invite you to prayerfully consider financially supporting this tremendous gospel opportunity. By donating to the Koops ministry, you will provide the funds needed to expand one of the very few evangelical stops open along the trail—a GEM-operated café and food truck.

Instagram post 17907733792924378 France is a nation rich in history and culture. Its grand, empty churches have long stood as a reminder of a shift that happened many years ago. Bob Evans found himself in that already-shifted culture while healing in a small French village during World War 2, seeing the empty church and hearing the heartbreaking sentiments that “God left France a long time ago”. To say that France is at a crossroads today is to forget much of its history, and yet, it is still in many ways at a crossroads. Please join us in praying for the people of France!
