Primary Ministry Focus: Evangelism and church planting.
The People: The Portuguese have a wide mix of beliefs, but their loyalty is to Roman Catholicism. The young people are exchanging religion for materialism and agnosticism.
Major Challenges: To gain a hearing for the gospel. Most Portuguese are either intent on emulating Western material prosperity or blinded by centuries-old traditions.
Prayer Focus: Courage for new believers to take a stand against the pressure from family and friends to forsake their new-found beliefs. A new fire of devotion to Christ among evangelical Christians.
