The Impact of Obedience

Ray, a GEM worker, arrived in Iceland in 1985 as a young missionary. As a new field for GEM, the possibilities for ministry in Iceland were wide open. Eventually, Ray became discouraged and frustrated in his ministry in Iceland. “I felt like I hadn't really accomplished anything. There are no Icelandic people that had come to Christ. I had no close Icelandic friends. So, I felt a bit like a failure.”

A young Italian man, Stefano, also came to Iceland. He received a Bible through a God-appointed meeting with missionaries there. As he went through the long, dark, cold Icelandic winter, Stefano began reading this Bible. The Word of God spoke to him so clearly, that he committed his life to Jesus Christ, alone in his small, rented room.

Upon meeting Ray, Stefano was thrilled to find out that Ray was a Christian. Ray began discipling Stefano, who was eager to learn more about his new faith in the Lord. The two young men developed a friendship during their weekly “marathon Bible discipleship sessions.”

It wasn’t until many years later that Ray saw what God had accomplished in Stefano’s life.

One may never know how God is working in someone’s life, or what sort of eternal impact we make on others. What we do know, is the importance of obeying God and letting Him lead our lives and ministries.

Europe needs more disciple-makers, church planters, and representatives of Christ to see Jesus transform Europe. Will you help us send more workers to the field?

Why Europe?

Europe is Unreached

Did you know Europe contains less than 3% of committed followers of Jesus Christ? Europe is actually one of the least reached place in the world.

Europe is Ready

The economic, political, and immigration turmoil across Europe has opened incredible opportunities for people to know the truth and peace of Jesus Christ.

Europe is Critical

Europe historically has been the influential epicenter for learning, philosophy, art, architecture and religion for more than 2000 years. Now, with the ongoing refugee crisis, reaching Europe is critically strategic for world revival more than ever before.

For more than 70 years, Greater Europe Mission has resourced and sent missionaries all across Europe, all with the prayers and financial support of friends like you. Please give a much needed gift of any amount to help resource and send more missionaries so they can share the Gospel with more people in need of the hope of Jesus.
