Communities where Christ is least known

Migrants and Refugees

SIM Switzerland has traditionally sent people overseas into the so-called ‘mission field’.   We now face a new challenge and opportunity, with people from all over the world seeking refuge in Europe and in our country. Most come from non-Christian backgrounds and have never heard the gospel. Some are from a Christian background, and have fled persecution. European Christians need wisdom to know how to best minister among migrants, in collaboration with each other and with the government.

Postmodern Generation

Statistics from 2014 indicate that about 71% of the population of Switzerland consider themselves Christian, with 2% declaring themselves evangelicals, 25% Reformed, and 38% Catholic. About 23% of the population are without any confession, and 5% follow Islam. The influence of Christian culture in society and everyday life is decreasing; individual values and convictions are now more dominant influences. The Christian faith is often considered a life with moral values but not seen as a life in relationship with God, revealed in Christ, and based on the Bible. Europeans need to know God again. Pray for those who have not yet heard of Him, and for Christians to live authentic lives full of passion for Christ. Pray that many would come to know the One who is worthy to be recognised, worshipped, and followed. 

Prayers

1

Pray for good relationships with churches.

2

Pray open hearts for missions in the home country and far away.

3

Pray for creative ways to stimulate people for missions.

4

Pray for an increase in the number of mission workers.

5

Pray for the development of our communications, especially social media.

6

Pray for care of our missionaries. 

7

Pray for God's provision of necessary financial support.

8

Pray for wisdom for effective management support of the sending entities in Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, and Romania. In 2016, we sent our first missionaries from Italy. 

9

Pray for wisdom in engaging the work among migrants and refugees.

10

Pray for good collaboration with our partner organisations in Switzerland and Europe.
